6.3.2 Report a Claim for Personal Injury
If you become aware of an incident where someone was injured, assess the situation and contact appropriate authorities as needed. Do not make any promises or financial commitments for the University. Units are not authorized to settle claims for personal injuries.
To report a claim for personal injury:
- Determine who was injured.
University Employee - A University employee may be eligible for Worker's Compensation. The University Office of Claims Management on the Urbana campus investigates and manages all workers' compensation claims for all campuses. Consult their Website for additional information.
Non-University Employee - Have the injured party complete and submit a Public Injury/Property Damage form. The University Office of Claims Management on the Urbana campus investigates and manages all public claims for the Urbana and Springfield campuses. The claims manager at University Counsel investigates all public claims on the Chicago campus.
The Public Injury/Property Damage Report form is not an admission of fault by the University. It is a means of gathering information regarding the injury.
- Work with your campus Claims Management Office.
- Your campus Claims Management office reviews the claim.
