AWC's WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE

"the compensation bargain"

AWC Builders Risk (and Workers Comp) Insurance Co., also offers workers' compensation insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment. This is in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee's right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence. This tradeoff between assured, limited coverage provided by AWC Builders Risk (and Workers Comp) Insurance Co., and lack of recourse outside the worker compensation system is known as "the compensation bargain."

While plans we offer differ within various jurisdictions, we offer provisions that allow weekly payments to be made in lieu of wages (functioning in this case as a form of disability insurance), also compensation for economic loss (present, past and future), as well as reimbursement or payment of medical and like expenses (functioning in this case as a form of health insurance), and, finally, benefits payable to the dependents of workers killed during employment (functioning in this case as a form of life insurance). So in providing workers compensation AWC Builders Risk (and Workers Comp) Insurance Co., also takes care of health, life and disability insurance all bound up in one package.

General damages for pain and suffering, and punitive damages for employer negligence, are not available in AWC Builders Risk (and Workers Comp) Insurance Co., plans.
