All workplace injuries must be reported to BrickStreet by the policyholder as quickly as possible, ideally, within 24 hours of learning of the injury.
Reporting injuries early helps everyone involved. It helps the policyholder by keeping claims costs and, ultimately, premiums down. It helps the injured worker by allowing the claims adjuster to make faster decisions, getting them the medical care they need in order to return to work. It helps BrickStreet by knowing how to react and who we need to involve in the 360° team approach. Finally, it helps the system in general by cutting down on potential problems associated with unmanaged claims.
