Workers’ Compensation Insurance
You choose employees for the value they add to your business — whether a key member of your management team, a skilled technician or your executive assistant. If anyone suffers an on-the-job injury, you want to try to take care of them and minimize lost productivity.
In a best-case scenario, you’re able to manage an injury so employees can get back to work as quickly as possible. And Farmers® has highly specialized workers’ compensation services that can help.
A workers’ compensation policy can address medical care and lost income for your employees, death benefits for survivors, and your potential liability for covered claims.
Farmers works with you to reduce costs and improve recovery times — by making quick contact with an injured employee and using excellent medical providers for a specific injury or illness.
Workers’ Comp Challenges and How Farmers Can Help
Multiple state operations
You operate in multiple states, each of which administers workers’ compensation differently.
Farmers’ highly experienced adjusting team can deliver injury management strategies that comply with the complex maze of state administrative laws.
Reduce risk across organizations
Your office doesn’t have many obvious risks — but you’re not sure if your employees have had enough safety training.
From O S H A compliance to safety education, Farmers can help you improve safety practices and reduce risk. A stronger culture of safety helps you manage work conditions and your employees more effectively, which can help improve profitability.
You’re concerned about the negative impact of fraud on workers’ compensation costs.
Farmers adjusters work with industry healthcare experts to review, identify and re-price questionably dishonest medical bills.
You want to know if employees recovering from injuries can perform their jobs with temporary modifications.
By speaking with an employee’s treating physician and work supervisor, adjusters can help identify physical limitations and the availability of appropriate modified duty.
In-house workers’ compensation insurance adjusters
In most cases, Farmers employees — not outsourced adjusters — manage employee injuries from start to finish.
We move quickly to investigate each injury and determine the compensability of all employee-made claims, especially if an incident is questionable. As part of the investigation, we will contact the employee, the supervisor, the physician and your Farmers agent.
