WORKER'S COMPENSATION

Worker with Blue Helmet

South Carolina Worker’s Compensation laws protect victims of workplace accidents that caused personal injuries or wrongful death. The responsible employer or business can be held liable for the injuries and many of the costs involved. An injured worker can recover medical expenses, lost earnings, and disability benefits even if the employer did not outright cause the workplace accident or injury.

 

If you are hurt on the job your first step should be to immediately report the accident to your supervisor and then seek appropriate medical treatment. Your employer will typically have the right to select your treating doctor, so begin there first.
 

Damages in a Worker’s Compensation case can include:

  • Compensation for personal injuries, pain, and suffering

  • Lost wages and earnings

  • Medical expenses and hospital bills

  • Permanent disabilities, disfigurement, and scars

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation

  • The loss of financial support and benefits

  • Funeral expenses and burial costs
