Workers’ compensation provides benefits to employees for work-related injuries or illnesses, including medical care, wages from lost work time, and more. It also provides a deceased workers’ family with a financial benefit. If a workers’ family decides to sue a company, it can also help cover the related legal fees.
Workers’ compensation insurance can help protect your business and employees in events such as:
- An employee slips while on the job, hurting her hand and arm
- A worker is rushed by ambulance to the hospital after being exposed to chemicals
- An employee injures his back lifting a box and requires lengthy physical therapy
- A salesman is involved in a car accident and requires hospitalization
With workers’ compensation insurance, your policy with Bobby Walters Insurance will help pay for the medical expenses needed to treat these job related injuries and illnesses. Workers’ compensation will also help employees keep their income while they take time off to recover.
