Incidents Happen

Tuesday, August 21, 2018 View Comments Comments (0)
We've probably all had a minor cut or bruise in our life.  No big deal, right?  We didn't go to the doctor or require any other type of treatment, but the incident did happen.
This same thing happens to our employees at work.  The truth of the matter is that sometimes these seemingly minor incidents can turn into something more severe.  This is one reason why it is important to report all accidents, no matter how minor they seem, to MCI.  Injuries requiring no medical treatment or lost time from work, are categorized as Record Only claims, when reporting through VLW.  Reporting the claim helps to preserve the facts and necessary information should treatment or lost time occur in the future.
