Compensability / Liability Investigations can assist claims handlers in determining the facts and circumstances surrounding a claim or injury. These investigations provide information to help determine the compensability of a worker’s compensation claim or help the examiner establish responsibility and set limits for liability claims with significant exposure. Additionally, these investigations often develop information creating subrogation potential.
Investigations can include an on-site inspection of accident location and mechanism of injury, recorded interviews of involved parties/ potential witnesses and verification of employment issues (i.e. subcontractor, wages, posted panel placement, training / safety programs, etc.).
Contact with treating physician can also be included to confirm treatment status, diagnosis and prognosis.
