Did you know that if you hire a tree service company that does not carry Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage, and if one of their workers gets injured while on your property doing a job, YOU could be held liable?
Yes, pretty sobering! You could get sued, you could be held liable, and you could be made responsible for paying for an injured worker’s treatment and care.
Many of our tree service competitors carry liability insurance, but not all carry Workers’ Comp, even though it’s mandated by Florida law. It’s a way they keep their overhead and prices down.
It’s a risky strategy, though, because if something happens to a worker, it’s you, the customer, that becomes liable.
In the long run, it’s not good for the tree company, either. Reputations can be ruined, and if the law is brought in, a company can be put out of business.
Nevertheless, some tree service companies still operate without this kind of insurance. In so doing, they expose you to everything mentioned above.
So: be smart about who you hire.
Remember that only Worker’s Comp insurance will shield you from shelling out potentially devastating amounts of cash for an injured worker’s treatment and rehab.
Ask your potential tree service company to show you proof of their Worker’s Comp. And before they come back and begin work, verify that their coverage is current. Call the Florida Dept of Financial Services at 1-800-342-2762 or go to myfloridacfo.com.
If you choose us, we will be happy to show you proof that we carry Worker’s Comp insurance. We care about our workers and our customers, and being in good standing with the law is a non-negotiable for us.
