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 also, provides you with peace of mind.
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 compensation is like an airbag for your business. When trouble strikes, it deploys to help your employee get back to work as fast as possible, minimizing the damage to your business.
If that sounds like a luxury to you, keep in mind, it's probably a good thing for your business. Imagine having to pay for a slip-and-fall accident out of your business checking account.
Workers compensation insurance may also protect you from being sued by employees for workplace conditions when a court finds your company liable in causing an injury or illness to your employees.
Under normal circumstances, fault does not matter in a workers compensation claim. Workers compensation insurance covers injuries or illnesses when they occur as a result of duties performed on the job or while at work
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.
