What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that businesses carry to cover employee medical expenses in case of work-related injuries. It ensures that employees receive the care they need without facing financial burdens. Workers’ Compensation is always paid by the employer and not the employee, but navigating the whole process can be overwhelming—and that’s where Southlake comes in to help!
