Understanding the Importance of
Workers Compensation Insurance

Workers’ compensation provides financial support to employees for work-related injuries or illnesses, while also promoting workplace safety by establishing a system that encourages employers to prioritize employee well-being.

What is It?

Workers' compensation insurance pays for injuries that occur while employees perform job-related functions, covering medical and rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and insurance settlements. Additionally, this policy can offer coverage if an employer is sued for damages related to an employee claim.

Why Do I Need It?

Accidents happen to everyone and they’re impossible to predict. On-the-job injuries or illnesses can quickly get expensive, leaving you open to significant financial risks. Additionally, Massachusetts law requires all businesses with employees to provide worker’s compensation insurance.

Who Is It For?

Workers' compensation is needed by employers to provide financial support and medical benefits to their employees in case of work-related injuries or illnesses. It is mandated by law in most states, including Massachusetts, for businesses with employees, regardless of the number of employees or hours worked. Self-employed individuals and contractors may also opt for workers' compensation coverage voluntarily to protect themselves from potential work-related accidents or illnesses.

How To Insure My Business

Workers Compensation Insurance - General Work Place Office

To ensure comprehensive protection for your business, securing workers’ compensation coverage is of paramount importance. This vital insurance provides financial support to employees who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses, offering medical benefits, rehabilitation costs, and compensation for lost wages. Not only does workers’ compensation safeguard your workforce, but it also shields your business from potential legal liabilities and lawsuits resulting from workplace accidents. To get started, research reputable insurance providers specializing in workers’ compensation policies, assess your business’s specific needs, and customize the coverage accordingly. Request quotes from different insurers to find the best fit for your business, and ensure compliance with legal requirements to keep your operations fully protected. By prioritizing workers’ compensation, you demonstrate your commitment to the well-being of your employees and the sustainability of your business.

Tips for buying Workers Compensation Insurance

Choosing the right workers’ compensation insurance for your business is crucial to protecting both your employees and your company. This section will offer valuable tips to help you navigate the intricacies of workers’ compensation insurance.

Identify Your Risks

Identifying your risks is the first crucial step in selecting the right workers' compensation insurance. Every business has unique risks associated with its operations, which need to be adequately accounted for to ensure the right coverage.

Review Policy Terms

Thoroughly review the terms and conditions of each policy, including coverage limits, exclusions, deductibles, and any endorsements or additional coverage options. Additionally, ensure that the coverage provided aligns perfectly with your specific business requirements.

Work with an Independent Agent

Research and compare insurance providers that offer coverage suitable for your business needs. Look for companies with a strong financial reputation, good customer service, and experience in insuring businesses similar to yours.

How much does Workers Compensation Cost?

The cost of workers’ compensation insurance can vary significantly depending on various factors. Insurers typically calculate premiums based on the type of business, the number of employees, the industry’s risk level, and the state’s regulations. Businesses with higher levels of risk or those involved in hazardous industries generally pay higher premiums compared to low-risk businesses. Insurance premiums are calculated on the number of employees, job classification type, and total payroll.

Workers' Comp covers the cost of medical treatment for an employee's work-related injuries or illnesses. This includes emergency room visits, necessary surgeries, prescription medications, and any required ongoing treatments.

Workers Compensation Insurance FAQs

While Massachusetts law doesn’t require you to have workers comp if you don’t have employees, you might be required to have the policy in certain situations. For example, some businesses require contractors and sole proprietors to have a policy to reduce risks.

If discovered, you can be issued a stop-work order and be fined daily until coverage is in place and all fines are paid. You could also be subject to criminal charges.

Sole proprietors have the option to be included or excluded when the policy is issued. This option provides considerable benefits for sole proprietors who would otherwise need to use their health insurance to cover a work-related injury.

Yes, a standard workers compensation policy typically has the following exclusions.
• Costs related to injuries incurred because of serious and willful misconduct from an employer
• The employer knowingly hired an employee in violation of the law (like hiring someone you know is underage)
• The employer failed to comply with safety regulations
• You discharge or coerce an employee in violation of the workers compensation law (like threaten to fire someone for filing a claim)

There are several factors involved in determining the cost of your workers compensation policy. Some of these factors include:
• Job classification of your employees
• Your company’s claim history
• Your industry
• Risks related to certain jobs including heavy labor
• Amount of your payroll
• Business size

I did some hunting online to obtain an auto insurance quote and I couldn't be happier with what Maria did for me. First, I loved that LoPriore had an option where I could simply upload my existing policy to obtain a quote. Next, Maria was so efficient in getting back to me. Then with her knowledge of insurance and her companies to choose from, and this is NOT an exaggeration: saved me thousands!! Maria had such sincere empathy for the high premiums we were facing, she went above and beyond to find us a great solution. This experience has truly renewed my faith that there IS indeed personalized customer service still alive and thriving out there. I am so pleased to have found a new insurance agency that I had only online reviews to go by at the start, and that I can without hesitation fully recommend! Do not give it a second thought. Move your policies here.

I am so relived I was referred to this insurance company. It is true . . . . . you get what you pay for. I tried all the internet companies first and was bombarded by scams and wasted almost a week with ZERO results. I called and had the pleasure of being paired with an excellent agent Brian Burgess. By this time, I was in a complete panic because I couldn't pick up my new car from the dealership until was insured. I have always had an out-of-state West Coast license that was expired. He was so personable, patient, and very friendly. The most important is that he was professional and new exactly how to solve the insurance issue. He had my car insured within two hours! He has continued to follow-up with me through the process. I am going to refer him to my clients and friends. Thank you Brian!Raquel

From the moment I was in contact with LoPriore agent I felt comfortable and secure that I been connected to someone I felt secure speaking with. Made my transition smooth and easy. Thank you!
It has been absolute pleasure working with Richard M. and the team at LoPriore Insurance. For years we did the direct route with homeowners and auto insurance thinking it would be easier and save us money. In beginning of 2022 we converted our multifamily home into condos and couldn't find any agent or companies willing to work with such a small HOA. I contacted Richard in a state of frustration and confusion and within a couple of hours he provided me with options and pricing. I was shocked at his ability to make the process look so easy compared to others I had been in contact with. Since then, we've also switched our primary residence and auto over their agency and Richard was able to get us better policies at a cheaper price! Our days of trying to go direct are behind us - I'm so relieved to have a dependable contact who can eliminate the confusion on such an important topic. Thank you, Richard, for your guidance and expertise!

It's all about the service baby!
Lopriore Insurance is the type of agency that shops around for you (the client) getting the best rate and most important, they get you the right coverage.
Recently, I had my families commercial property switched over from another local agency, saving us over 3k with a bunch of extra bells & whistles we didn't even ask for (who does that). This kind of service has me telling my family and friends to support them because of all they do.

We have been working with LoPriore Insurance Agency for many years for our auto, personal and business insurance policies. Being a small business owner, it's nice to know that if any issues arise, it only takes a quick phone call to have someone help address it. We always feel that we are in good hands with John and his amazing team!
Adam Griffith is our main man at lopriore insurance. Very efficient and honest! Not just an agent but a trusted advisor. Try and find someone to figure out how to insure a tattoo shop within a barber shop?? You would think it’s not possible, but Adam made it happen.
John and his team are the best.
I use them for all my insurance needs, auto, home and business.
Companies that I work with are always impressed on how quickly they respond to all our insurance needs.

Try LoPriore insurance, you will not be disappointed

I got into an accident a little over a month ago. My agent Danielle was very helpful. She was always able to answer my questions, if I couldn't reach anyone from safety she was able to contact them and have them get back to me right away. When I had to go to the office and do paperwork work all of the employees were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend this agency.

I have met many people in the Insurance industry, over my career of transacting Real Estate, and as a Broker/Owner of a firm. None, have made themselves so invaluable that I call them first without question, except for Lopriore. They offer consistently great service and rates, and help my clients with timely advice.

I trust them with my most valuable assets -- my clients, and my reputation.

Thank you for helping my clients, and my business!

5 stars!! A family member of mine suggested that I call there insurance guy John at LoPriore Insurance to get a better quote on my current insurance. When I called John he was very easy to work with and extremely helpful. I couldn't be happier with how easy and fast it was to get a quote of my current policy which included a renters policy and it was all offered for $1200 less per year. After years of being insured by another insurance agency I always thought all prices were the same buying from insurance agencies.
To my surprise this wasn't the case and I can't be happier I was referred to the insurance guy!! I Also want to thank Maria at insurance office that made it simple to transfer and sign up with my new insurance. I literally did this all thru my iPhone and signed my paperwork via my phone which made the change so simple. I highly recommend you contacting them and seeing what they offer you!
