Supporting people and facilitating access to relevant services for injured workers as early as possible is an important part of helping people get their lives back.

“The challenge for insurers like EML is not only to manage claims, but to innovate in ways which allow us to provide better care for those whose lives we’re trying to help rebuild. It’s an area in which we’re forging a reputation as a leader” said Bill O’Reilly, EML Chairman.

Through our Member Benefits we’re funding pioneering research and investment in good claims management.
