FOR V, To All I. A. D. Men ,,,,,5 Nay 23, 1927
We attach two copies of memorandum that we have made
containing some suggestions for the investigation of accident
claims, particularly questionable cases. We believe that these
suggestions will be of considerable benefit to those who have
to do with making investigations, especially to those who have
not had a great deal of experience in investigating complicated
and questionable cases. We are hopeful that these suggestions
will minimize correspondence with reference to this subject.
We would suggest that this memorandum be read and studied,
especially just prior to starting out on an investigation of
some complicated case.

In the administration of industrial accident work the usual run of cases
which arise out of and in the course of employment do not require a great
amount of investigation, other than to determine that the accident happened
as alleged and that the injured was performing his usual duties at the time
of the accident.
There are, however, many cases where a person suffering from a physical
condition which he alleges was caused by an accident that arose out of and in
the course of employment, which are doubtful and require a careful investiga-
tion of all facts and circumstances surrounding the alleged occurrences.
Whenever a person claims thet he is disabled because of something which '
occurred during his work, or that he met with some injury while at work, his
statement should be secured and signed by him if possible. If he refuses to
sign a statement a notation to that effect should be made, together with the
names of persons who heard him make such statement. It is probably better to
use plain or ruled paper for such statements securing enough of the historical
details to fill out the regular form of accident report. It is not always
necessary to use the company form of report in these unusual cases, but an
accident number should always be assigned for filing purposes.
In a statement of this kind, care should be taken to secure all details
surrounding the occurrence. Get the names of any and all witnesses, or the
persons to whom he first mentioned the incident. State to what person in _
authority he first reported and when the report was first made. Get him to
say, if possible, that was the first report he ever made. If he did not make
a prompt report get him to say why he did not report earlier. If he consulted
I any doctor get their names and addresses and the date he first say them. If
a patient in any public or private hospital, secure name and also name of
doctor who attended him.
Not all of these unusual claims turn out to be regulnr accident cases,
but they should be handled as such until investigation proves otherwise. The
statements of witnesses should be secured for the record. Claimants sometimes
change their own stories and early statements may be of great value in such
` cases.
The investigator should present his case completely so that the reviewer
will have the benefit of all the information which the investigator has obtained
about the case.
The investigator should familiarize himself with all of the requirements
of the law in his State, especially as to notice and claim so that his in-
vestigation will be complete. Accident reports should be made up in every
case where there is n possibility that a claim may develop later. If the case
is not accepted as regular in the first place, the records can be marked so as
to properly classify it, without tnbuliting as a "lost time" case.

 . _2_
" If it is found that the claimant was a patient in any hospital an in-
, vestigation of the records should be made. In most public hospitals the
record can be examined and even copied without obtaining the permission of
the attending physician or surgeon. Where the record contains information
of value it should be copied.
In cases where the claimant was a patient in a private hospital under
the care of his own physician or one of the hospital staff, interview the
doctor first, securing, if possible, what history the patient gave him as to
accident or the cause of his disability, and if it appears that an examina-
tion of the record is necessary then secure his permission for such
examination, reporting your findings.
There are often cases where persons are suffering from disabilities
such as hernia or osteomyelitis, etc. who, when interviewed, do not claim
that their disability is due to an accident, or that they met with any
accident which arose out of and in the course of employment. If their con-
dition or disability is one that when properly coached may be developed into
a claim of an accident, a statement should be taken on plain paper at the
time of first interview, that they met with no accident and that they do not
know what caused their disability.
The laws of the several States differ as to time for reporting an
accident by a claimant. In some states an accident must be reported as
soon as practicable. In others there is no provision as to notice. and in
others they must be reported within anywhere from fourteen days to six
months. It is important that the investigator familiarize himself with the
law of his particular State.
A The tendency among most states seems to be that an accident must be
reported to some person in authority within thirty days after occurrence.
By some person in authority it is generally held to include, foreman,
assistant foreman, timekeeper, doctor, claim man or any person in authority
over the injured person. In a few states reports must be made in writing,
but that requirement may be waived by the Commissions or Boards of those
It is important to ascertain when the claimant first reported his
alleged accident and to whom such report was made. This fact should be
verified by securing statements from the person or persons who received the
In some states a claim for compensation must be made against an em-
ployer or filed with the Compensation Commission or Board. This may be
made wither orally or written and the several states require that claim be
made anywhere from six months to two years. There are some states where,
under certain conditions, a claim may be filed within six years from date
of accident. I

The investigator should ascertain what the law ef his state requires
concerning filinq claim for compensation and make his investigation cover
all such points. Claim for compensation may be made to anyone in euthority
the same as notice of accident.
In some states it is held that the furnishing of medical attention has
the same effect as the payment of comoensaticn, therefore, it is important ·
to gscertnin if the claimant received any treatment from eompeny surgeons
and when such treatment was given.
In all claims it is important to determine whether the accident arose
out of end in the course of employment. Generally speaking, en accident
arises out of the employment when it is peculiar or incidental to the employ-
ment, and it arises in the course of employment when the injured is doing the
work he was employed to de, at e time and pla
