No accident is insignificant. There are potential negative consequences as a result of not reporting a claim or the untimely reporting of a claim. So report ALL claims.
Material requested after an accident…
- Information – statement about the accident/injury from anyone who witnessed the injury
- Personnel Files – Application, Second Injury Questionnaire, I-9 form, also any and all documented personnel records/forms

CLAIMS BUY-BACK PROGRAM
Due to the fact that claims frequency tends to drive up experience modification factors, we offer our members the opportunity to reimburse the LAC Self-Insured Fund and have this claim deleted from their experience modification calculation. Members are under no obligation to repay the claim and there is no additional charge for us handling the claim prior to the claim being “bought back”. The two goals of the claims buy-back program are:
- To get members to report ALL claims
- Keep experience modifiers low.
