Claims Corporation Denmark Specializes in Handling Workers’ Compensation

By CCN 2 months ago

Over the last 20 years, CCN in Denmark have handled over 30,000 workmen’s compensations files for different customers. Our customers are both municipalities as well as foreign insurance companies selling the workmen’s compensation insurance via Danish agents and brokers.

The Danish Workmen’s Compensation

•          Workers’ compensation insurance is mandatory by law and insures all employees or their survivor’s compensation for accidents or illness caused by work or working conditions. Self-employed and working spouses can insure themselves in the same way as employees if they buy workers’ compensation insurance for themselves.

•          Workers’ compensation insurance only covers personal injuries that result in permanent disability. Temporary damages are covered by the employer and the public sector according to the rules on sickness benefits etc.

New law adopted on the 7th of December 2023

In December, the Danish Parliament adopted a new act in the field of occupational injury, which involves new rules and several changes to the current rules. Most changes will come into force on 1 July 2024 – while some changes will already be introduced from 1 January 2024.

The purpose of the new law is to:

•               Improve the injured party’s attachment to the labour market after an occupational injury

•               Reduce case processing times

•               Improve the compensation system

In order to handle this very specific and legally complex area you need specialists, which Claims Corporation in Denmark (CCD) can provide.

Meet Linda from CCN – a specialist in Workmen’s compensation

Linda is a specialist in the area of workers’ compensation and one of the driving forces behind CCD’s professional case management, which is always based on respect for all parties. Her area of responsibility includes both occupational and personal injuries. This involves, among other things, assessing permanent damage, loss of working ability, burning/pain, and lost earnings.

The cases that Linda has are often complex, and here we benefit from the fact that, among other things, Linda previously spent 22 years at The Danish Board of Appeal and 5 years at the Danish Workers’ Compensation Agency (AES). When we ask Linda what she thinks about working with us, she replies: “I am happy to be with CCN. We have close social cooperation. I like to be in a place where I have broad and varied cases. I am involved from start to finish and have a great deal of influence and responsibility”.

CCD is also very happy to have Linda on our journey to growth and satisfied clients.
