 What is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?

Workers’ compensation insurance is a type of insurance policy designed to safeguard employees who sustain injuries or illnesses due to their employment. The fundamental purpose of workers’ compensation insurance is to provide financial support and medical assistance to employees, ensuring that they don’t bear the burden of healthcare costs or lost income that may arise from workplace-related injuries or diseases. For employers, having this insurance policy in place mitigates the risk of potential lawsuits that could occur if an employee gets hurt while working.

Coverage Provided by Workers’ Compensation Insurance

Workers’ compensation insurance typically covers four major types of expenses. First, it covers all necessary medical care directly related to the injury or illness. This includes hospital stays, medical treatments, medications, and even transportation for medical appointments in some cases. Second, it provides disability benefits, which can be temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the injury. These benefits are designed to compensate for the employee’s lost wages while they are unable to work. Third, it offers rehabilitation benefits, which cover necessary physical therapy or job retraining if the employee is unable to return to their previous role. Finally, it provides death benefits to the family of the worker in the event of a fatality due to a work-related incident.

Find the best property insurance for your needs

It’s important to note that workers’ compensation insurance does not cover every situation or circumstance. Generally, for an injury or illness to be covered, it must arise out of and in the course of employment. In other words, it must be directly related to the job. Some incidents may not be covered, such as those that occur when the employee is commuting to or from work, or incidents where the employee was violating company policy or engaging in reckless behavior.

Additionally, not all workers are covered by workers’ compensation insurance – independent contractors, for instance, are typically excluded. Employers and employees alike should familiarize themselves with the specific terms of their workers’ compensation policy to understand what is and isn’t covered.

Medical Payments Coverage and Personal Injury Protection

Risk Factor

Depending on the severity of the injuries suffered in an automobile accident, whether caused by you or by the other vehicle, it’s not uncommon for healthcare costs to run into the thousands of dollars, with a large portion being out-of-pocket expenses not covered by your health plan.

Solution

Medical payments coverage or Personal Injury Protection, depending on where you live, can help cover some medical expenses and funeral expenses of covered drivers and passengers after an accident. The exact requirements, limits, and coverage can vary by state, so it’s important to understand what’s required where you live.

Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.

Rental Coverage / Loss of Use

Risk Factor

When your vehicle is being repaired or replaced due to a covered loss, you may have to rent a vehicle to get you to and from your daily responsibilities without any interruption. Vehicle rental can get expensive, especially over an extended period of time.

Solution

Rental coverage/ loss of use is an inexpensive option you can add to your auto insurance policy to pay for the cost to rent a temporary replacement vehicle or the cost of public or private transportation if your vehicle is ever in an accident. This coverage is available in a variety of daily limits.

Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.

Bodily Injury Liability Coverage

Risk Factor

It’s easy to get distracted while driving. All it takes is an incoming text message, a fussy baby, or changing the radio station and your eyes are off the road long enough to crash into the slowing vehicle in front of you. As an owner/operator of the vehicle, you may be held financially responsible for any bodily injuries caused as a result of the accident.

Solution

Bodily injury liability covers your legal liability for a covered accident that involves injury to another person, up to the limit of liability you select. Purchase enough coverage to protect your assets should a claim be brought against you or if you are sued. You should also consider purchasing an excess liability policy which may provide additional limits of liability.

Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.

Physical Damage Coverage

Risk Factor

Your automobile can be a fairly costly investment – one that is exposed to many potential losses caused by weather related events, theft, and other circumstances that may be out of your control.

Solution

Physical damage coverage can protect your vehicle if it is damaged in an accident (collision coverage), is damaged by something other than a collision (comprehensive coverage) with a vehicle or object or if your vehicle is stolen. This coverage is optional if your vehicle is paid in full, but it is coverage you should consider if you want to fully protect your vehicle.

Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.

Property Damage Coverage

Risk Factor

When involved in an auto accident, you and your family may be financially responsible for any damage caused by your vehicle to someone else’s property. The amount required, if any, can vary by state.

Solution

The property damage portion of your auto insurance policy protects you if your car damages someone else’s property, such as another car, a fence, or a building. In some instances, you may be able to choose your coverage limit, or it may be a standard amount dictated by the insurer or local laws.

Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.

Uninsured / Underinsured Motorist Damage Coverage

Risk Factor

What happens when the driver who hit you doesn’t have enough liability coverage? Or, even worse, they take off? Research has shown that this happens more than you might expect. If you’re in a collision with someone who is uninsured or underinsured, you can be left to pay out-of-pocket for damages and medical expenses not covered by the other driver.

Solution

Uninsured/underinsured motorist damage coverage may compensate you for bodily injury and lost wages caused by an uninsured motorist, a hit-and-run driver, a driver whose automobile insurance company is insolvent, or a driver who has not purchased enough coverage to pay for damages.

Note: Actual policies must be consulted for specific terms and conditions.
