An Age of Injury report is a valuable tool that can help an adjuster better understand a specific injury and provide clarity around causation. When requested, an independent radiologist will review all diagnostic images and corresponding reports to provide clinical insights as to how and when the injury occurred. During this webinar, we will take a deep dive into the Age of Injury report- when to request, what information is provided, and how to read the findings – to discover how it can be a resource during the claims management process.
