5 BIG Workers Compensation Challenges

ONE: How do I find skilled workers without hiring a work comp claim problem… and still stay in compliance with all the laws and regs?

Preventing Work Comp claims starts at the time of hire.

TWO: What simple and effective safety training can I easily implement to prevent workplace injuries?

Safety Training is crucial in preventing claims… and often times improves Company Culture and Employee Productivity.

THREE:  I’m confused! Help me understand my Experience Mod calculation… and how I can lower it?

Very few Insurance Agents can explain how your Experience Mod calculation works… and even fewer can help you effectively lower it.

FOUR: When a Work Comp claim happens how do I keep it from getting out of control?

Work Comp claim costs can quickly spiral out of control without a Team assisting you.

FIVE:  When a serious workplace injury happens, what support should I expect from my insurance agent?

Your Insurance Advisor should have the experience, understanding of the Work Comp system, and access to Resources to offer you Professional Guidance and Support when a serious workplace injury occurs.

Focusing on your Workers Comp Insurance challenges while reducing your Cost of Risk.

Unfortunately, many business owners learn the truth about workers’ comp the hard way: Don’t learn the hard way. 

When an employee is injured and you’re not sure where to turn or who to ask for help, it can give you the feeling that maybe the system is not working for you, it is working against you? Do you ever feel this way?

If your employees claims are not processed properly or timely, it hurts both you and your employees.

You have the power to end this cycle that is draining your time, energy and money, not to mention, upsetting your employees. 

You need an equalizer, someone to assist you and your employees.

You need a Workers’ Comp Insurance Advisor who focuses on reducing risk and workplace injuries while minimizing your Workers Compensation Insurance costs. 

Mike’s focus has been decades of hands-on experience utilizing an innovative approach positioning his clients with the time to truly care about their employees’ well-being while creating a safe and happy workforce.

With our insurance program, you can go back to growing your business instead of being drawn into the workers’ comp process.

Compensation For Fatal Injuries Coverage

Medical Expenses Coverage

Risk Factors

A painter falls off a ladder while working on a ceiling and breaks a leg. His workers’ compensation policy pays for the ambulance ride to the hospital, surgery, medications, and physical rehabilitation.


When an accident happens at a workplace, workers’ compensation covers the cost of immediate care, such as an ambulance ride or an emergency room visit. It also helps pay for surgical procedures, medications, hospital stays, and other medical bills. Ongoing care, such as continuing medication and physical rehabilitation, is also covered.

Lost Income Coverage

Risk Factors

An HVAC installer accidentally lowers an air-conditioner unit on his foot and breaks several bones. The installer has to stay off his feet for a month, which prevents him from working. The installation company’s workers’ comp policy pays part of the wages that would have been earned during the month of missed work.


A serious injury can prevent an employee from returning to work for days, weeks, or even months. Workers’ compensation often pays for part of the wages lost while an employee is recovering from a workplace injury or occupational illness.

Rehabilitation Coverage

Risk Factors

Your disabled employee may also receive a Transferable Skills Analysis. This helps find other roles for them where they can learn new skills and work with their disability.


Workers’ comp can help cover your employee’s ongoing care. This includes ongoing physical therapy or vocational rehabilitation to help them learn new skills so that they can return to work in a different role. Workers’ comp can even help cover any new training and certifications.

Disability Benefits

Risk Factors

Sometimes a work-related injury or illness can leave your employee disabled. If an employee who slips in the office and breaks her wrist may be partially disabled and continue to work, but only for half days until it heals.


If your disabled employee has to take time away from work to recover, workers’ compensation can help them recover some of their lost income until they return to work. If your employee has a permanent disability, workers’ comp can give them disability benefits for life.

Lawsuits Related To Work Injuries Coverage

Risk Factors

A chef in a restaurant suffers third-degree burns while trying to put out a grease fire. She blames the restaurant for failing to provide a fire extinguisher and adequate safety training. The case goes to court; the restaurant’s workers’ comp policy pays for the cost of hiring a lawyer and the eventual settlement.


Workers’ compensation insurance typically includes employers liability insurance. This policy protects the employer from a lawsuit claiming a worker was injured by the employer’s negligence. If an employee sues, it can help pay for Attorney’s fees, court costs, settlements or judgements.

Compensation For Fatal Injuries Coverage

Risk Factors

An electrician accidentally touches a live wire, goes into cardiac arrest, and dies. The electrical company’s workers’ comp policy covers the cost of the funeral and burial. It also provides financial support to the electrician’s spouse and children.


When a work-related incident is fatal, workers’ compensation pays death benefits that cover funeral expenses and help support the deceased individual’s family.

    I'm in the workers' compensation business, and I can tell you that Mike really gets it. There are many, many brokers who do not truly understand the important issues in comp. Mike's not one of them. He runs a small company and is close to his clients. As a small business owner himself, he understands their business realities. Mike is straight up and his concern for his clients is way beyond the basics of account management.

    I discovered McDonough Insurance after Mike McDonough stopped by our office and left a bag of treats along with a copy of his book. Several months later I was in need of a new broker. Due to our business location being near the proximity of the brush fires in California, our carrier made a decision to non renew our policy because of our geographical location to the designated fire area. After unsuccessfully calling around to find coverage for my property and business, my previous broker called me to tell me that she had exhausted all of her options and possibilities of finding a replacement policy. She said it was now up to me to find coverage with only a couple of days left before our coverage expired.
    I remembered Mike and gave him a call. Mike and Nannette immediately started working to find coverage for me. They not only found me replacement coverage, but they also found it with a carrier that was more competitive with more comprehensive coverage, and most importantly, they did all of this in 2 days. They found me a new policy and my coverage didn't cancel or lapse.
    Working with the McDonough Insurance Team has been a refreshing change - they answer my emails and calls, answer my questions and explain thoroughly. And they are both genuinely nice people to work with.

    Mike McDonough is one of those rare individuals who brings a unique special perspective to his professional work. As an insurance broker, he consistently puts his clients best interests first, bringing a superior degree of integrity and care to the sales experience. Mike is more interested in supporting people in getting what they want, based upon their goals and objectives rather than selling them on what he thinks they should have. His sincere caring and dedication last well beyond the closing of a transaction. With Mike, you have a partner for life.

    We have only been doing business with McDonough Ins for a little more than a year now and over this past year, we have had approximately 7 claims. From as small as a sprained knee to as large as 1 injured worker undergoing a pretty serious surgery for his neck and shoulder. To date, none of these claims have been litigated. In this short amount of time, Mike and his team have filed the case, treated the injured worker, and 6 out of the 7 have been released back to work as good as new with lost time or income. Our only regret is that we did not meet him years ago. We could have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars but most importantly our injured workers would have received the proper care from the start
