An Accident at Work Leaves You With an Injury. Who Pays the Bills?

You have an accident at work. Does workman's comp cover you? Injuries at work are common and medical treatment is expensive. For work campers, who covers the bill if you get hurt?

If you are working as an employee, chances are your employer is paying for worker's compensation insurance. The most basic purpose of worker's comp is to pay for employee's medical expenses when they receive an injury at work.

But, are you an employee?

It could be that you are a volunteer or an independent contractor.

Some non-profit organizations have liability insurance that covers volunteers against injuries.

Working RVer Tip

Be ready for on-the-spot job interviews. You never know when an employer may call you and want to do an interview right there and then, on the phone call. Or, your intention may be to just drop of an application, but the interview takes a quick glance and decides he wants to know immediately know more about you and your skills. Be prepared.

We started this site after corresponding with thousands of RVers, sharing what we’ve learned from our personal experience as full-time RVers, as well as what we've gleaned from employers and managers who hire and work with work campers and other RV workers.

We do hope we've been instrumental in helping you find the right work situation for your RV lifestyle.

We believe there are many advantages to having an RV home based business that we can take on the road with us. We've found a Watkins Summit Group business works for us.

We are also thankful for SBI!, the "do-all-the-techy-stuff-for-you" e-business building platform that made creating this RV resource site possible.

If you have questions, we're always happy to help. Simply submit them here....
