Case Study (C) - Injury Management - Construction Worker
This employee had a wrist injury; the initial specialist consultant
regarding the injury indicated the employee would be unable to continue
with his chosen trade. The initial estimate for the injury placed by the
insurer was conservatively set at over $50,000.
We discussed the circumstances and decided to engage an alternate
specialist with expertise in this type of injury. The employee was happy to
change surgeons being given the prognosis of likely full recovery. The
employee underwent the operation and on to a Return to Work plan, returned
to full pre-injury duties within 10 weeks.
File closed. Final certificate pre injury duties and hours. Total costs
incurred were $15,000. A concretive saving of $35,000.00 on cost of claims.
