Workers Compensation Insurance for Carpenters

Workers compensation insurance protects your business by covering the lost wages, medical bills, and legal costs associated with an employee getting hurt on the job. For example, if you accidentally run over an employee’s foot while backing your truck up, your workers compensation policy may cover the costs of that claim. If your employee decides to sue you for that accident, your policy could cover your legal costs.
