- What is Workmen’s Comp? – An Insurance Program, state mandated, that provides benefits to employees who suffer job-related illness or injuries. Each state has its own programs and laws, and to know those concerning your state you should research them on your own, or contact an Independent Insurance Agent to do the research for you.
- Can an Employee be treated by their own doctor? If not, can an Employer’s doctor be trusted? – Again, each state has their own rules regarding this issue. However, typically an employee will have to go to a doctor provided by the employer initially. It is important to know, however, that the treating doctor’s report will have a big impact on the benefits received.
- Does Worker’s Comp cover long-term problems and illnesses? – The short answer is “yes.” Conditions developed over a long period of time, such as back injuries, for example, may be covered by Workmen’s Comp.
