Case Study: Workers Compensation & Claims Handling

While all claims situations are serious, workers compensation claims are particularly harrowing because they involve the most valuable resource a business has: its people. The timely handling of a workers compensation claim can have a huge impact on the ultimate outcome. Cases that do not receive proper attention in a timely fashion — both from an indemnity perspective and a medical perspective — have the potential for a poor outcome. As such, any steps that can be taken to move the process along quickly are much more likely to create the best possible outcome.

On Oct. 25, 2007, Society Insurance received a First Report of Injury via fax. The form indicated that an employee had fallen into a 680-degree Fahrenheit tank on Oct. 24. The injured worker was thenQuick Reaction Time airlifted to the University of Wisconsin Hospital as a result of severe burns to his arms and legs. The worker was hospitalized in the burn unit in critical condition with third-degree burns running from his thighs all the way down to his feet, and with second- and third-degree burns on his lower arms and elbows.
