What type of injuries does
Workers' Comp Insurance cover?

Workers' comp insurance covers both the employer and the injured worker. Like all types of insurance, it acts as a safety net in case of an accident.

If a worker gets hurt on the job, the insurance company will help cover the costs associated with their care so the worker is well taken care of until they return to work.

Since the company had a workers' comp policy, they do not need to pay anything towards the bills.
