What is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

Workers’ Compensation Insurance, or workers’ comp for short, protects your business and your workforce by providing benefits to most employees injured on the job.  In some cases, it also covers the cost of your legal defense if the employee sues you.  These benefits can address medical care and related medical costs, retraining and lost wages until the employee can return to work or compensation for permanent disability.

For example, let’s say you own a small clothing line.  If one of your employees is injured while sewing, your workers’ compensation insurance will cover the cost of their medical treatment and lost wages.

  • Employees’ type of work
  • Sub-contractor usage
  • Claims history

How does Workers’ Compensation work?

Here’s how workers’ compensation works:

  • Your injured or sick employee seeks medical help and you submit a worker’s compensation claim with your carrier, providing details of the incident and the necessary information
  • The carrier’s claim experts, adjusters, review your submission and upon approval, your injured employee begins to receive benefits that cover their medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and lost wages while they are medically unable to work
  • You get back to running your business successfully while you injured employee is on the mend, knowing your carrier has you covered
