5 Critical Pieces of Information to Confirm Following a Work-Related Injury

 

How to Execute A Bulletproof Workers' Comp claim

 

There is no time in a worker’s compensation injury claim more important than that time immediately following the injury to find out actually what the heck happened. Hello, my name is Michael Stack. I’m a CEO of Amaxx and today I want to walk you through the five critical pieces of information that you need to confirm immediately following an injury.

 

 

Employer Injury Report / Adjuster Recorded Statement

 

Now, this is either done by the employer when they’re filling out those forms. You’re going to get a certain piece of this information. But also then by the adjuster when the adjuster is taking their recorded statement. Let me run you through those five critical pieces of information that you need to confirm and lock down so that there’s no gray area later and you’re trying to put the puzzle pieces together and figure out what the heck happened when you could have just confirmed this right away when the information was still clear in everyone’s mind.

 

 

5 Critical Pieces of Information to Confirm Following a Work-Related Injury

 

Let’s talk about what these things are.

 

  • You need to confirm the mechanism of injury
  • If there are any witnesses there at the scene that saw exactly what happened,
  • What body parts were involved
  • If that individual injured worker has previous injuries or not,
  • And then finally who the healthcare providers are, who their primary doctor is, etc.

 

Let me run you through those again. The mechanism of injury. What and how did the injury occur. The witnesses. The body parts. What exact body parts were involved. Was it the elbow only? Was it the knee as well? Was it the hip? They landed on their back. What was involved and what was not involved. If there were any previous injuries and then if there were healthcare providers, what healthcare providers have they seen in the past, so that you can locate those medical records and get a lot more information on what exactly has occurred with this individual and injured worker, so you can make the right decision, which is what we’re trying to do here in worker’s compensation.
