One of the key factors in any successful commercial entity is the employee. When an employee is injured at work, efficiency at the business goes down. In short, your employees’ safety is crucial in ensuring productivity. If you don’t have workers compensation, then you will have to cover potential medical costs out of pocket or else face a legal suit.
At Berliner-Gelfand, we offer workers compensation coverage to avoid this devastating scenario. Our policies protect both your employees and your business in case of any work-related injuries or illnesses.
Workers compensation insurance is a state-mandated insurance coverage that protects a business from being sued by employees over poor working conditions in case of work-related injuries. Every business is supposed to carry this policy, and we provide the insurance coverage that suits your company perfectly depending on size, the number of employees, and even type of operations involved.
At Berliner-Gelfand, we ensure peace of mind so that you can run your company effectively. With suitable workers compensation coverage, we ensure there are no legal tussles lurking in case of an accident at your facility.
Workers comp coverage is designed to cover injuries at the workplace even when they result from an employee’s or employer’s negligence. These injuries don’t have to occur at the workplace. For instance, if an employee who is traveling for a business trip suffers an injury, our workers compensation coverage will cater for the damages. Our workers compensation coverage also includes injuries from sudden accidents, such as falls or those that happen over time such as computer-related repetitive stress injuries (RSIs). Injuries or illnesses resulting from exposure to radiation and harmful chemicals are also covered under this insurance policy.
However, workers compensation insurance covers most, but not all on-the-job injuries. If an employee is intoxicated, work-related injuries are not covered. Other situations that can lead to denial of workers compensation coverage include:
