Securing lost wages and medical benefits for employees injured in work-related accidents
Under the South Carolina workers’ compensation laws, an injured employee is generally barred from filing a personal injury suit against their employer. Rather, the workers’ compensation system provides financial benefits to cover employees for economic losses arising from an accident that occurs or illness that arises during the course of their employment.
Whether you were injured or suffered an illness from your work on a construction site, at a factory, warehouse, restaurant, office building or another work environment, our attorneys can help you recover:
- Medical expenses
- Compensation for permanent partial or total disability
- Lost wages
- Out-of-pocket costs related to medical treatment
Workplace injuries that are compensable can include those arising from occupational illnesses, slip and falls, car accidents, ladder falls and repetitive stress injuries. We work diligently to help you get the benefits you deserve for your injury.
Helping families who lost a loved one due to an employment injury or illness obtain death benefits
If your loved one passed as a result of a workplace accident or illness, we can help you obtain the death benefits to which you’re entitled as a dependent. The dependents may be entitled to receive:
- Sixty-six and two-thirds percent the decedent’s weekly wage
- Burial costs up to $12,000
- Reimbursement for the decedent’s medical expenses
However, state law places strict time limits on death benefit claims that vary based on the injury or illness. Navigating the process can be overwhelming, but you don’t have to do it alone. We are dedicated to helping you obtain every benefit you deserve for the loss of your loved one.
Adept representation for workers’ compensation appeals
If your claim for workers’ compensation benefits was denied, we will fight for your rights to obtain the benefits that are available to you. Whether it has been found that you missed the application deadline, your injury was not work-related, you were an independent contractor or your claim was otherwise deficient, we are skilled in developing strategies to overcome denials and represent clients at every level of appeal.
