a worker being injured on the job. Many employers purchase workers’
compensation insurance to cover them against the financial costs of workplace

the worker or the business itself is at fault for the workers’ injuries.

What Does Workers’ Comp Cover?
Employers purchase workers’ compensation insurance coverage to provide
financial reimbursement for their injured employees in exchange for immunity
from being sued for most workplace accidents. Workers’ compensation
covers an injured employee’s medical expenses and up to two-thirds
of an employee’s lost wages until they are able to return to work.
In the event that an employee should pass away from a work-related illness
or injury, workers’ comp also provides death benefits to the decedent’s
family to offset the cost of funeral expenses and lost wages.
Workers’ comp covers nearly all types of on-the-job accidents and
- Slip and falls
- Repetitive stress injuries
- On-the-job car accidents
- Work-related illnesses
- Heat exposure illnesses
- Toxic chemical exposure
It is important to remember that workers’ compensation insurers are
still businesses and are primarily concerned with protecting their bottom
line. For this reason, insurers may be prompted to search for a reason
to deny a workers’ compensation claim to minimize their financial
liability and maximize their profits – sometimes by dishonest means.
If you believe your business’ workers’ compensation insurance
provider may have acted in bad faith, our firm can examine the terms of
your policy and pursue legal action against your insurer in pursuit of
your entitled coverage.
