South Carolina, like most states, offers a statutory system designed to provide financial protection for workers who are injured or killed on the job. This system is called “workers’ compensation.” Pursuant to South Carolina’s workers compensation statutes, an injured worker can recover medical expenses, lost earnings, and disability benefits if injured on the job – even if the employer did nothing wrong to cause or contribute to the workplace accident. Navigating the workers’ compensation system can be complex. You need an attorney with the background, experience, and knowledge necessary to understand the intricacies of workers’ compensation law, which is constantly evolving and changing. Thus, it is important to retain an attorney with extensive experience in the workers’ compensation system.
Workers’ compensation benefits may be available to workers who have suffered a wide variety of different types of on the job injuries and illnesses. In South Carolina, some of the most common accident and illnesses that lead to workers’ compensation claims include, but are not limited to:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Occupational illnesses
- Chemical exposure
- Knee Injuries
- Shoulder Injuries
- Vehicle accidents
- Back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Broken bones
- Loss of hearing
- Herniated and bulging discs
Our workers’ compensation attorneys have experience with each of these areas. Our attorneys offer insight and straightforward analysis of a claim’s viability and value, and work closely with clients to develop a strategy and find a solution. We routinely appear in front of the Workers’ Compensation Commission to litigate claims.
