Employers are required by law to have workers' compensation insurance for all employees. Workers' compensation insurance is designed to create a system of compensation for a worker who has been injured in a work-related accident. If the injury is fatal, the family usually receives the resulting insurance money. As the employer, workers' compensation insurance offers the benefit of protection from employee lawsuits filed to collect compensation for work-related injuries. Therefore, the employer may avoid paying the large settlements and attorney's fees that often result. Workers' compensation insurance also reduces the role of an attorney in collecting compensation after the accident, thereby reducing the costs to both the employer and employee. State laws may vary regarding how the insurance is provided and what it covers. For more information about workers' compensation insurance, contact a qualified attorney.
