Challenged Claims Injuries must be initially investigated by supervisor! If claimant case is questionable supervisors must report facts. We can challenge claims when filing the electronic CA-1 or CA-2 and provide supporting documentation A safety investigation can either validate or challenge injury claim There were two claims challenged- one sustained, one accepted!
