Does Your Business Have Sufficient Workers’ Compensation Coverage?

You already know that all California employers are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage pays for the medical expenses of injured employees as well as compensation to the employees for lost income.

Most policies also protect physician-owners against lawsuits stemming from workplace accidents. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the private healthcare sector reported having the highest number of non-fatal occupational injuries and illnesses in 2017. The top causes cited were overexertion, slips/trips/falls, and contact with objects or equipment. Due to these unfortunate events, healthcare professionals may decide to work through the pain and/or discomfort while risking the possibility of worsening the injury or illness.
