What Happens After a Worksite Injury

Our goal is to work with you and your injured worker as soon as the claim is reported. Report the claim as soon as you become aware of the injury. All State of Rhode Island TPA worksite injuries should be reported online. Please note that you will need to log in to BEACONNECT, Beacon Mutual’s secure online portal, to report a claim.

Once you submit your claim online, you will receive a claim number and an adjuster will be assigned to the claim. Please scan and email the initial injury report and all supporting documents including witness reports, dependency forms, and medical authorization forms to the assigned claims adjuster via the State of Rhode Island’s secure email system [Send Secure].
