Description

Workers' compensation, as a coverage, is simple. A worker gets hurt, the work comp policy pays theoretically. That's the simple part.

The more complicated areas of workers' compensation involve the state laws and legal doctrines applicable to workers' comp.

Agents must be able to answer these questions when they arise. But there is much confusion and misinformation surrounding these topics.
