If you were injured in a workplace accident, you may be uncertain about what you should do next. Do you know your rights? Are you entitled to compensation under South Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws? How are you going to pay your bills if you aren’t receiving your normal income?
At The David Law Firm, we understand the concerns injured workers have and we are here to help alleviate some of the stress you are facing.
The workers’ compensation system in South Carolina is a no-fault system. That means if you are hurt on the job, you are entitled to benefits regardless of fault. All employers in South Carolina who employ four or more people are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover their employees. However, just because you are covered by workers’ compensation does not mean that you will automatically receive benefits after a work-related injury. At The David Law Firm, we have years of experience in successfully representing people who have been hurt at work. We will aggressively work on your claim to recover the worker's compensation you deserve.
Almost any type of physical injury or mental illness caused by your work is covered. This includes broken bones, fractures, sprains, scarring, torn meniscus, rotator cuff injuries, disc herniation, and even death. Many times employees do not realize that Workers’ Compensation also covers other types of work-related injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, loss of hearing or vision, lung injuries, heart attacks, strokes, hernias, disfiguring scars, and injuries caused by repeated exposure and occupational diseases.
If you were injured in an on-the-job accident or suffered a work-related injury or illness, we can fight to help get you the compensation you deserve. Working with an experienced attorney after a work-related injury or illness will help ensure you receive the benefits you are owed. We are ready to stand up for you and your rights. We are available to take your call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
