Q. An employee reported an injury to me on Monday. I think the employee was injured over the weekend. What can I do?

A. Report the claim to your insurer. Investigate the alleged injury carefully. Ask for witnesses and determine if any other persons may have been able to observe the alleged injury. Keep you ears open for potential rumors of weekend injuries and investigate if you receive any additional information. Report your suspicions and any information you collect to your insurance company.
