Injuries occur, but when they occur in the workplace they may set in motion a series of events that can prove costly to both the employee and the employer.  Mitigating this potential financial catastrophe should therefore be at the forefront of the employer’s list of priorities.  The best practice to do so, however, is not to be adversarial.  A recently published article by Ken Martin, of Property Casualty 360, emphasizes the proactive role the employer can play to reduce the costs of a Workers’ Compensation claim.  Ultimately, prompt claim filing and continued monitoring of each injured worker’s status are logical ways to keep costs low, while ensuring a positive employer/employee relationship is preserved through this sometimes arduous process.
