Worker’s Compensation Insurance
Worker's Compensation Insurance in NYC
An employee can easily sustain an injury or fall ill due to the nature of the job and the workplace environment. An employee can get injured by carrying heavy equipment, tripping on a wet or oily surface, or due to fire or explosion. All the medical expenses of treating the worker will be covered.
The cost of training the injured employee to recover and return to work is included.
During treatment and recuperation, the coverage will ensure that a portion of the injured employee’s wages is paid to him.
It should be noted that claims for a worker who becomes disabled due to an on-the-job accident– such claims fall under disability insurance category.
