What is meant by worker’s compensation insurance?
An insurance policy which protects the workers from claims emerging out of bodily injury or death due to any accident or disease outbreak caused by the conditions of an employee’s job is known as worker’s compensation insurance. As an “exclusive remedy,” it covers the total cost of medical services and rehabilitation for workers injured on the job as well as reduces the risk of financial loss and high costs of litigation and workers’ compensation claim defense. It is a state-mandated coverage that also compensates them for wages that are lost and provides death benefits for their dependents if they are killed at workplaces, including-terrorist attacks.
