What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation insurance provides medical and wage benefits to people who are injured or become ill at work.
Coverage Can Be Hard to Find
Finding Workers’ Compensation coverage can be difficult, especially if you are a start-up company, sole proprietorship, or have a history with claims. In particular, construction companies are facing a particularly hard market because insurance carriers are tightening down on the risks they are taking. Many insurance carriers require 3 to 5 years of documented experience to even consider you for coverage. Past claims history can cause businesses have a hard time because their current carrier has decided to not renew them. This creates a situation where a company is looking for coverage with a “black mark” on their record, which can make things difficult.
