Workers Compensation Insurance
For Contractors in Los Angeles CA

Los Angeles CA Contractors
Workers Comp Insurance

Workers Compensation Insurance for contractors is a tremendously expensive proposition. Depending on the specific nature of the construction business, rates in the range $10 to $13 per hundred of payroll are commonplace. For contractors doing roofing, these rates move up and beyond the $30.00 range. That means on the low side 10% of your payroll goes to pay your workers compensation tab and on the high side 30%.

The reason for this is workers compensation is considered a long tail claim. In other words, a claim can take a long time to settle with both medical and loss of income going on indefinitely. Workers compensation for contractors is so expensive due to the fact that for many insurance companies workers compensation is a losing proposition.

Workers Compensation Insurance is considered an "Exclusive Remedy" for employees injured in the line of your employment. This means that it doesn't matter whose fault it was to cause your employees injury, workers compensation is the policy that will pay for the injury.

Los Angeles California Workers Comp Bottom Line

This is good news, and totally straight-forward. The problem comes that all the defense that you as the employer pick up through the advent of workers compensation go out the window if you, for whatever reason, don't secure workers compensation insurance. In other words, if you decide not to purchase the coverage or if your workers compensation insurance policy lapses, you have no defense. If your employee is injured in the line of work, you still have to pay. Not only the medical and the lost wages - you are now wide open for a lawsuit.

Bottom Line - it is just a very bad idea for you as a contractor in California not to have workers compensation insurance. Think about it another way, many insurance companies are scared or at least very conservative when it comes to workers compensation for contractors. Almost without question, they have deeper pockets than you do. If a possible loss scares them, that same loss could bankrupt you.

The Secrets of Workers Comp for Los Angeles Contractors

Workers compensation is unlike any other form of insurance. Most insurance policies put a cap or policy limit as to how much a claim could cost. With workers compensation there is absolutely no limit. The next issue is that when you dig into the nuts and bolts of the workers compensation policy you come to realize that for anything but very large claims - you as the employer are going to not only pay for the claim over time, but you will actually finance that loss at a very high interest rate.

The good news - by focusing on Los Angeles California contractor's workers compensation we are uniquely positioned to help you. There are a number of pitfalls that contractors face when it comes to workers compensation insurance.

These include but are not limited to:
  1. Hiring the wrong employee - workers compensation claims data shows that this is the one of the key components in predicted and preventing losses
  2. Not having a bulletproof audit package
  3. Not properly securing Certificates of Insurance for subcontractors
  4. Not having a Light Duty or Return to Work
  5. Not Understanding the best ways to control and improve your experience modification thus causing your business to grossly overspend year after year
