Workers' Compensation

One of the most important assets to any business owner is its employees and their families. As a business owner you can take every precaution to prevent work place injury but even the best safety programs does not guarantee 100% protection. Workers compensation provides financial assistance for events such as illnesses, diseases, injuries, disability and death incurred while at the work place. It pays for medical care, physical rehabilitation, lost wages, and benefits for dependents of those workers killed because of work-related injuries or illnesses.

In most states workers compensation coverage is required for all employees that are not owners of the company. Failing to meet your state’s workers compensation requirements may lead to severe fines as well as leaving you exposed to the full costs (including litigation) of the workers compensation claim.
