Workers Compensation Insurance

Client Centered

Keeping your employees safe at work is important to most business owners. But when a worker does suffer an injury, workers compensation coverage provides your employees with protection they need, and provides you with peace of mind that they’ll be covered.  Workers' compensation insurance is often mandatory for many businesses if they have employees, no matter what the job requires. It covers medical costs and a portion of lost wages for employees who become injured or ill on the job. Workers' comp insurance may also protect you from being sued by employees for workplace conditions, which a court finds your company liable in causing an injury or illness to your employees.


Workers' Comp Insurance Basics

Since workers' comp insurance typically only covers injuries or illnesses when they occur as a result of duties performed on the job or while at work, the scope of the coverage of the policy is limited to duties performed by employees.

Injuries that may be covered by workers' comp insurance include lifting heavy equipment, slipping on a wet or oily surface, or sustaining injury due to fires or explosions.

Workers' Compensation Insurance may cover:

  • Medical bills for employees hurt or sickened at work.
  • Ongoing care, including rehabilitation.
  • Wages missed while recovering (often partial).
  • Employee lawsuits over injuries (through Employer's Liability Insurance).
  • Funeral expenses, if an employee is killed on the job.
  • Death benefits to support the deceased's family.

It does not cover:

  • Third-party lawsuits.
  • Lawsuits over professional errors.
  • Wages for a replacement worker.
  • Parental leave benefits.
  • OSHA penalties.
