Business Insurance is confusing, time-consuming, and costly.
We fix these problems.
Finding the Best Workers Comp Company
Worker’s compensation insurance is often treated as the redheaded stepchild of the business insurance program, right up until the time that their rates go up drastically.
Far too often, business owners are told that workers comp rates, “Are what they are,” and “All workers comp companies are the same.”
This is completely incorrect.
Workers’ compensation insurance is one of the few insurance coverages where you, the business owner, can play a significant role in reducing the annual cost of premiums.
There are workers’ compensation companies that only do workers’ compensation.
They have specific target markets like restaurants or contractors or manufacturing or office risks. Their pricing and claims are tailored specifically for these target markets.
If you want to get the best rate on your workers’ comp, you need an insurance agent who understands the market and can place you with the right workers’ comp company.
Benefits of Finding the Best Workers Comp Company
Over 60 percent of the workers’ comp policies are wrong.
That’s a huge number and the primary reason is most companies do not work with a worker's compensation specialist.
You most likely have never had a full review of the:
- Lost cost multipliers, and
- Experience modification factor adjustments,
…which can greatly impact both your premiums and your total cost of risk.

The Hartford integrates with payroll providers to create accurate premiums with its XactPAY® option. This means you’re less likely to pay more than you need to throughout the year. The pricing is contingent on the industry, location, and size of your business and can be incorporated into a pay-as-you-go plan.
Additionally, The Hartford has an exceptional claims approach that moves the business and injured employees forward quickly. The Hartford automatically adds coverage that are paid endorsements with other carriers:
- Stopgap coverage
- Voluntary compensation
- Bundling discount

While The Hartford may be a generalist insurance company providing a wide range of commercial insurance products to a wide variety of business classes, their workers’ compensation product is rock solid.
