Were you or a loved one injured on the job and have questions about South Carolina workers’ compensation laws and your rights?
Workers’ compensation is a specific set of laws that South Carolina enacted where you go through it where you’re not suing your employer. So you don’t have those rights to sue your employer in court, but your employer is bound to take care of you. And by taking care of you, I mean they have to pay for your medical bills. They have to pay you any permanent impairment rating, they have to issue you temporary total disability checks. And at the end of the day, though some things are taken away from each party, it’s the fairest option that we have in South Carolina.
Since the worker’s comp in South Carolina is a huge set of laws and statutes and regulations, a claimant does not want to go through it on their own because, most likely, at the end of the day, you will not get your full value and you will be taken advantage of by the employer and the employer’s insurance company.
