South Carolina Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Workplace accidents can happen anytime, to anyone.
It doesn’t matter how careful you are, a workplace accident can change your life forever. A job-related injury can take many forms, including:
- A fall from a ladder or other height.
- Serious burns caused by a defective power tool.
- A fractured hip caused by a slip and fall on slick tiles.
- A wrenched back from loading the company delivery truck.
- A head injury from a car accident while on the job.
Fortunately, there’s a compensation scheme designed to help injured workers.
South Carolina provides a compensation scheme designed to provide injured workers with money while they heal from their injuries or illness. However, it’s not always easy to get this money. Sometimes an employer and the insurance carrier fight an employee’s claim. For example, the employer may claim that the worker’s injury did not happen on the job, or that it resulted from a pre-existing condition, or that the employee’s failure to immediately tell the employer about the injury means that the worker is not entitled to coverage.
