At AVI Services we understand the necessity for you and your company to be covered under all lines of insurance.
Simply defined, workers' compensation recompenses, gives something to a worker, one who performs labor for another, for services rendered or for injuries.
Workers' compensation is not, by definition, insurance. Rather, it is social insurance, much the same as unemployment compensation and social security.
Under workers' compensation law, employers are required to make provisions such that workers who are injured in accidents arising out of or in the course
of employment receive medical treatment and receive payments ranging up to roughly two thirds (2/3) of their wages to replace lost income.
Workers' compensation is a no-fault structure, meaning that an injured employee need not prove the injury was someone else's fault in order to receive
workers' compensation benefits for an on-the-job injury.
There are three basic parts to the workers' compensation system:
•The benefit structure
•The benefit delivery system
•The benefit financing system
In California, workers' compensation must be provided to employees by the employer under California Labor Code Section 3700.
There are five basic types of workers' compensation benefits:
•Temporary disability benefits
•Permanent disability benefits
•Vocational rehabilitation services
