Common Workers’ Compensation Questions
How does workers’ compensation work?
Workers’ compensation provides financial support to someone who sustains an injury, illness or other physical harm while on the job.
When such injuries occur, the victim might face costly medical hardships. They might also face a loss of regular income since they can’t work as a result of their injury. Therefore, they could face income insecurity simply as they try to recover from such an injury. Workers’ compensation supplements this income so that injured parties are not faced with trying to fund their own recovery on their own.
Who needs workers’ compensation?
When an employee sustains an injury on the job, most state laws make the employer liable for the injury even if the matter was simply an accident. All in all, every employee has a right to be supported if they get hurt because of their job. The employer’s workers’ comp insurance will provide that support while freeing the employer from liability for the accident, which can prevent most injury lawsuits.
Oregon law requires every business with at least one full- or part-time employee to carry workers’ compensation insurance, with limited exceptions. Speak to one of our agents to learn more about your precise workers’ comp insurance requirements.
