The Cost of Delay

Higher Costs. Injured employees who do not receive timely care are more likely to seek medical treatment on their own, which can sometimes result in over-treatment. According to some studies, delays can increase total costs as much as 18% in just 2 weeks. Failure to promptly report injuries can result in an inadequate investigation by a claims adjuster. At 90 days from the date of knowledge of an injury, the association we may be forced to accept liability for nonindustrial injuries.

Penalties. Moreover, delays or failure by an association send an employee for treatment and report the injury can result in penalties against the association.
