Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation insurance has two main parts:

Part One

This coverage provides benefits to employees for an accidental injury or disease arising out of and in the course of employment.  Benefits include compensation for medical costs and lost wages.  In exchange, the injured employee waives the common law right to sue the employer.  Negligence or fault is generally not at issue.

Part Two

This covers damages for which an employer becomes legally obligated to pay to a third party as a result of a claim or suit brought by the third party to recover damages claimed against the third party as a result of injury to the employer’s employee.
