A farm can’t operate fully without the proper equipment, so it’s crucial to have the right coverage in order to cover your farm’s items.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Workers compensation for farms varies depending on your location. In Virginia, farms with at least three full-time employees must carry workers compensation insurance as well as a limited amount of employers’ liability.
Workers compensation insurance helps if an employee is injured on the job. It can provide compensation for immediate medical bills, lost wages while the employee recovers and more. Farms can be dangerous, especially for employees working with animals and heavy equipment. Workers compensation can help the employee recover and prevent lawsuits from hitting the farm.
