Workers’ Compensation


WORKERS' COMPENSATION


  • Stryker gathers factual information and provides field intelligence functions through integrated teams of intelligence analysts, social media analysts, physical surveillance specialists and a dedicated number of special investigators. All assignments are immediately assigned to an appropriate Investigator.

    Proper investigation of an incident requires patience, training, experience, and skill on the part of an investigator. Specific rules for investigating cannot cover all situations. The investigator must use ingenuity and imagination to determine the best way to get the facts. The Stryker investigator is primarily a fact gatherer and is not expected to engage in extensive legal research. The investigator will interview witnesses and parties involved, obtain statements and photographs, and prepare diagrams. The investigator must, however, gather all pertinent facts impartially and report them accurately and concisely.

    Employers must typically provide injured employees with a workers’ compensation claim form within 24 hours of receiving notice of the injury. Employers must also supply the employee with written information (usually a pamphlet) about the employee’s rights under the workers’ compensation system. The written material should provide details about available benefits and how to file a claim. 

    Employers often think they have completed their investigation of the new workers’ compensation claim when they have finished filling out the state required Employers’ First Report of Injury (FROI). The information on the FROI is a good start on investigating a new injury claim, but it is not, by far, the only information that needs to be developed when investigating an injury claim. The person responsible for overseeing the employer’s workers’ compensation claims should interview the injured employee, in person if possible or by phone if an in person interview is not possible, to discuss the accident.

    AVOIDING FRAUD: Business owners should clearly and continuously convey to all employees a commitment to workplace safety as well as a zero tolerance of workers’ compensation fraud.  Ask your insurance carrier for anti-fraud materials such as posters or payroll stuffers, and educate employees about the adverse impact that fraud can have on each of them and their individual positions.

    Three types of workers’ compensation claimants who may commit various degrees of “fraud,” some of which may be due to poor management or the process-oriented nature of workers’ compensation claims management in the current environment.

    They are:

    1. Abusers.
    2. Opportunists, and
    3. Forgotten, frustrated, and forlorn employees.
