Workers’ Comp Insurance: Should Employers Have A Choice?

Many states are in the process of evaluating potential changes in the workers’ compensation landscape concerning the option for employers to “opt out” of mandatory work injury coverage for employees. One of the primary concerns that arise is the provision of adequate benefits to injured workers. Additionally, it is important to note that workers could potentially be prohibited from pursuing legal action against their employers for negligence or any other claims related to on-the-job injuries. This development has sparked increased attention and discussion within the workers’ compensation community.

The current trend toward denying injured workers’ claims underscores the need for those injured on the job to retain an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to provide guidance and options, and take legal action if necessary.
