WORKERS' COMPENSATION

Protecting employees and businesses, it’s what we do.

Quick Overview

Workers’ compensation insurance provides medical and wage benefits to employees who suffer an injury or illness in the scope of their work. It also covers disability benefits as well as death benefits to dependents of employees killed in a work-related accident. Workers’ compensation is a state law which means that each state has different regulations. However, workers’ compensation is more than just a legal requirement, it’s an essential investment into a business that helps create a safe work environment and protects employers from potential civil lawsuits.

FAQ

What Does Workers Compensation Cover?

If an employee suffers a work-related injury or illness, workers’ compensation will help cover the costs of:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost Wages
  • Ongoing care costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Disability benefits
  • Death benefits

These workers’ compensation benefits relieve the financial burden on employees who suffer an injury or illness at work by covering a wide range of costs from ambulance rides to medications to physical therapy. It’s important to keep in mind that workers’ compensation isn’t available for employees who get hurt outside of work. Also, if an employee were to injure themselves while intoxicated, they wouldn’t be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.

Who Needs Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation requirements differ by state and even by industry. For example, any business operating in Florida with four or more employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. On the other hand, employers in the state of Texas aren’t required to provide workers’ comp. Since requirements differ by state, it’s essential to understand insurance requirements in the state you operate in. Also, specific industries like farming and construction may have distinct requirements, so it’s always recommended to consult with insurance professionals before making a decision.

How Much Does Workers Compensation Cost?

There are many moving variables that affect premium costs such as the industry you operate in as well as the location of your company. Additionally, your total payroll influences workers’ compensation prices. There are also more specific factors that affect premium prices such as the risk associated with your business’s work, your best practices, and your loss history.
