Alabama Workers’ Compensation Insurance: How to Find the Best Rates

Does your Alabama based business need workers’ compensation insurance? Be aware that several factors will influence your policy premium, including the number of employees needing coverage, the nature of the business and your claims records. Different carriers offer different levels of coverage and rates vary, so it’s wise to shop around before signing on the dotted line. The experienced brokers at The Nowell Agency have provided valuable tips on how to keep your business insurance costs in check.

  1. Familiarize yourself with state regulations: Rules on how workers’ compensation insurance applies to your business are determined by the state in which you operate. If your business operates outside Alabama, you must comply with the insurance laws of that state as well. Knowing where your employees will be required to work can help you get accurate quotes and properly compare coverage and rates.
  2. Classify employees correctly: Premiums are typically calculated according to the type of work your employees perform. Accurately classifying what a particular worker does can ensure that you are paying for the right coverage.
  3. Maintain safe working conditions: Your claims record has a significant influence on the premiums you will pay. Insurance carriers use the number of claims made in the past to gauge the likelihood of future ones. Naturally, a long record of no claims puts your business in a more favorable position. Implementing safe working conditions and educating your employees on work safety reduces the possibility of accidents, injuries and claims.
  4. Evaluate your insurance rates and coverage every couple of years: Changing trends in the insurance market place, a clean record and/or moving to another carrier can sometimes lower your premiums. That is why you should make it a point to assess your coverage and rates every two or three years and shop for a better deal.
  5. Work with an insurance broker: The time involved in obtaining and comparing multiple workers’ compensation insurance quotes often deters business owners from looking for better rates. Working with an experienced and reliable broker can make all the difference. Unlike an agent who is allied with a particular carrier, our brokers have access to multiple companies and products. We will shop around for you.

    My very first insurance experience was when I bought my first house and I called the Nowell agency for a quote. I had no idea what I needed or how much and they were so very kind and knowledgeable and explained everything to me in detail which I so much appreciated. That has been 4 years ago and im still a customer never plan to leave.
