My worker was injured. How complicated can a Worker’s Comp claim be?
If you’re asking this question it’s a good indication that this is something you’ve not had to deal with before. It’s never a pleasant experience having someone injured in the workplace, no matter how small the injury, and it’s even harder when a small accident or injury has ongoing or long-term consequences.
When someone is injured at work, no matter how small the injury, it can open up a whole minefield of situations which need to be managed in a certain way, with the correct forms, and within a specified time-frame. There are strict Legislative and Regulatory requirements which must be met!
Don’t try handling it all yourself. Assurance HR can guide you through the procedure, help you manage the return-to-work process, liase with all parties concerned, ensure your worker is properly cared for and leave you free to manage your business.
