What is workers’ compensation insurance?
Workers’ compensation insurance is a no-fault insurance scheme designed to provide wage loss and medical benefits to workers who suffered job-related injuries or diseases. Nearly every employee in Idaho is covered by workers’ compensation insurance.
An employee who suffers a compensable job-related injury or disease may be entitled to receive compensation for medical care, lost wages, or other related benefits or services, depending upon the injured worker’s specific situation.
What types of injuries are covered?
Workers’ compensation insurance is designed to cover most injuries that occur in the workplace. This includes workers who have “dangerous” jobs, such as high-rise window washers and construction crews, as well as other workers who simply get hurt while at work. For example, workers’ compensation benefits might be available to a warehouse worker who stumbles out of a golf cart or to a receptionist who suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome.
Common compensable injuries include:
- Fall injuries
- Back injuries caused by repetitive motion
- Head injuries
- Burns and electrical injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Respiratory injuries
- Broken bones
- Hearing loss
