A leading insurer received a claim for a work-related injury involving a fall off a ladder leading to the claimant’s death. The insurer policy covered the property liability. There was no question that the claimant fell off the ladder and died on the scene. The demand triggered the request for a claim audit to discover any mitigating factors.
TPN completed a review & analysis of the submitted documents and identified missing documents and other evidence to help determine mitigating factors. This included requesting the video footage from the security cameras in the building. TPN brought in a trauma specialist expert from their network to review all the documents and evidence gathered.
TPN’s trauma expert reviewed the medical records and the surveillance video obtained by TPN. Our specialist was able to determine from the video that the claimant likely had a syncopal episode while getting on the ladder as they descended from the roof, and it was the syncopal episode that caused the fall and ultimately the death of the claimant. Our trauma specialist was able to prove it was not any defect in the roof, ladder or anything on the premises that caused the claimant to fall. Our client was able to close the case and avoid a large settlement payment.
