With a variety of tools and workplace safety training resources, AmTrust works with our appointed agents to provide Workers’ Compensation insurance for small businesses quickly and easily.

Workers’ compensation insurance protects your small business and your workforce by providing benefits to most types of employees who are injured on the job. These benefits can address medical care and related medical costs, retraining and lost wages until the employee can return to work or compensation for permanent disability.

The primary purpose of workers' compensation is to address legitimate workplace accidents and carelessness. This includes incidents that occur off the employer's premises but in the service of the job, such as injuries sustained while traveling for work. It can cover both short- and long-term issues, like falling off a ladder or acquired carpal tunnel syndrome.

A major workers’ comp claim can have a devastating financial effect on your business operations. Having access to effective loss control resources can help avoid accidents, and with sound claims management, your injured employees can return to work sooner - thereby improving productivity and saving your business money. Companies are creating workplace safety programs as a way to invest in their company’s safety while at the same time improving employee welfare and productivity. Devoting resources to these safety programs can reduce the number of accidents in a workplace and lower your workers’ compensation costs.

What are the IBA Five-Star Excellence Awards?

Insurance Business (IBA) is a business magazine featuring industry reports recognizing the achievements of key individuals and businesses. The magazine also provides the latest in insurance best practices.

IBA’s Five-Star Excellence Awards originated from researching the top searches on the IBA website, finding that readers searched for information on the top insurance providers for different product lines.

For the 2020/2021 Five-Star Excellence Awards, IBA spoke with brokers to find out their carriers of choice for different product specialties to put together a “Best Insurance” list.

For the Workers’ Compensation award, IBA’s team had one-on-one interviews with the industry's most elite brokers to determine which carriers were mentioned the most. They compiled a list of these carriers for IBA’s readers and broker network to rate the carriers on the strength of their relationships with brokers, ability to handle claims, underwriting expertise and, most notably, the strength of the products they provide.
