Workers Compensation

Navigating workers compensation can be tough, but we can help make it easy. We represent a wide network of insurance companies, meaning we can help almost any business find the right coverage at a solid price. Read below to learn a little bit more about Workers Comp:

 

Workers Compensation, also known as Workman's Comp, provides coverage for employees' injuries that happen while on the job. It provides coverage for both bodily injury by accident and disease.

Generally bodily injury by accident must occur during the policy period. Bodily injury by disease must be caused or agitated by the conditions of employment with the employees last exposure being during the policy period.

Coverage and benefits paid are state mandated, and the exact qualifications for when Workers Compensation is required can change based on location state, company type (e.g. a sole proprietor vs an LLC), etc. Coverage may apply to medical treatment, loss wages, and rehabilitation among other things.

 

Coverage may also extend beyond state requirements to cover additional expenses, such as interest on judgments. Another common addition is yo a Workers Comp policy is Employers​ Liability. It's designed to cover other injuries arising out of the course of employment, such as a worker's spouse suing for loss of consortium or dual capacity suits.

Premiums for workers comp are based on classification for the type(s) of work, loss history (experience modification), and remuneration (gross annual payroll). Since premiums are payroll based, policies are often subject to audits. But to avoid big price swings many of our carriers offer a pay-as-you-go solution to make doing business easy.

 

Many insurance companies also offer loss control services to policy-holders free of charge in order to make workplaces safer and to keep premiums low.
