...'cause they can get hurt
Property managers are responsible for employees' safety on the job. If an employee is hurt, they will be out of work for a time, which means they aren't able to service your customers and earn you money.
Workers' Compensation for Property Management Companies can cover employees, sub-contractors, volunteers, and independent contractors, depending on your plan. Workers’ comp may cover any type of injury that is sustained while your employee is working for you — whether it's an on-the-job injury or an injury that occurs offsite.
This means that, even if an employee is injured during a company retreat or outing, or while running errands on the clock, these injuries could be covered by workers’ comp. In the case of Workers’ Comp for Property Managers, an injury may occur at a specific building or on the way to a building visit.
Larger property management companies may have employees in several states, which is why it can be useful to buy workers’ comp where one company insures all of its offices across the nation. This way, if a person works in multiple states, they only have to have one policy.
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.

Don't underestimate your payroll
You will be expected to pay the difference at the end of the policy.
Have a clear process to report claims
...and make sure your employees know about it. This will make the entire experience easier for all involved.
Report every incident
- even if it didn't result in a large injury. Some things which seem insignificant can snowball into costly issues.
