So I’ve Been Injured at Work…Now What?

By consistently training on and applying thorough safety measures, most work injuries can be avoided. If, however, an injury does occur at work, ICW Group workers’ compensation services are here to support your employees in their time of need. 

If An Injured Worker Doesn’t Have Questions, Something’s Not Right

It’s expected that most injured workers will have questions related to the work comp claim process, medical care options, benefits available to them, and the procedure for returning to work. A worker who seems overly familiar with the workers’ compensation process is not the norm and could be an initial red flag of a career claimant. In other words, we expect that most all injured workers will have questions. Delivering timely information is essential to comfort workers during this unexpected – and often scary – time.

Injured Workers Center Available For Your Employees

In addition to our team of dedicated Claims Examiners who will be answering all of your workers’ questions, ICW Group recently launched our Injured Workers Center website. With step-by-step information, easy navigation and an informative video, this new offering aims to answer the questions an injured worker might have. 

Peruse our Injured Workers Center today and make sure to check out our short video, “What to Expect if You’ve Been Injured at Work,” available in both English and Spanish.
