What Is Workers’ Compensation?
An employer with five or more employees is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Some companies with a higher risk of workplace injuries, such as construction companies, are required to carry it regardless of their number of employees. The insurance is intended to offset major expenses, such as surgery costs or long-term disability. Unfortunately, employers and their insurance companies often make it difficult to access those funds, forcing workers’ compensation attorneys to take action.
