Accident Claim Investigation
A prompt and thorough accident investigation can help to prevent future accidents by uncovering root causes so that they can be addressed. It can also provide a basis for investigating and contesting a potentially fraudulent claim, or establishing third-party liability, such as faulty or defective equipment. A complete accident investigation consists of three parts: Interviewing the injured employee and any witnesses and obtaining written statements; Inspecting the scene, including sketches, taking photographs and preserving any physical evidence; and preparing the written report, including identifying the probable cause of the accident and recommending corrective action.
From there, it is important for the accident investigator to analyze the facts and try to determine the cause of the accident. Typical examples of immediate causes and contributing factors for human failures are as follows: Job factors including illogical design of equipment and instruments, constant disturbances and interruptions, missing or unclear instructions, poorly maintained equipment, high workload, noisy and unpleasant working conditions. Individual factors including low skill and competence levels, bored or disheartened staff, individual medical problems.
We know that each year there are far too many emergency service providers killed and injured on the job. One of the best tools that we have to enable the prevention of injuries and deaths is the prompt and thorough investigation of all accidents that occur, regardless of whether a death, an injury or serious property damage was the result. It is in the investigation, and specifically in the information gathered during accident investigations, that we may find the solutions to many of the problems which create needless losses.
