Get the care icon

Get the care
In an emergency, call 911. In a non-emergency, suggest your employee go to a clinic you should already have an established relationship with. You want to make sure the clinic you choose is familiar with handling workers’ comp injuries and understands that you are interested in getting your employee back to work as soon as medically possible.

Gather information icon
Gather information

Find the information necessary to report the injury. Be prepared to share with your claims representative:

  • Specifics about the injury and how it happened
  • Wage information
  • Employee’s full name, date of birth, address and Social Security number
  • Medical information

If you don’t have all of the information, report the injury anyway and gather the information later. Timely reporting is crucial to getting the claim off to a good start.
