Workers Compensation Insurance
What Is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
Workers’ Compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence.
Workers’ comp does pay hospital and medical expenses that are necessary to diagnose and treat your injury. But it also provides disability payments while you are unable to work (typically, about two-thirds of your regular salary), and may pay for rehabilitation, retraining, and other benefits as well.
The second part of the Workers Comp policy is Employers Liability. This part covers liability arising out of employees’ work-related injuries that aren’t covered by the first part. Specifically, we’re talking about lawsuits.
General damage for pain and suffering, and punitive damages for employer negligence, are generally not available in workers’ compensation plans, and negligence is generally not an issue in the case.
