What Is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

Workers’ compensation insurance (also known as workmans’ comp insurance) provides benefits to employees for work-related injuries or illnesses including medical care, wages from lost work time, and more. Workers’ compensation insurance covers a deceased worker’s family with a financial benefit as well. If a worker’s family decides to sue the company, it can also help cover the related legal fees.

Workers’ compensation insurance can help protect your business and employees in events such as these: 

  • An employee slips on ice, injures himself while walking up the stairs to the office, and requires an emergency room visit and weeks of recovery time.
  • An employee injures her back lifting a box of printer paper and requires a doctor’s attention, medication and physical therapy.
  • An employee returning to the office from visiting a client is injured in a car accident and requires hospitalization.
