Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Workplace accidents can occur even if your business has an excellent safety program.  Often those who are injured at work need time to recover. Thankfully, there is workers’ compensation insurance to cover the medical and lost time costs.

If an employee is injured on the job, employers are legally liable to the employee. Workers’ compensation also covers employees injured in on-the-job vehicle accidents.
