South Carolina Work Injury Attorney
The South Carolina workers’ compensation system has been designed to provide a reliable source of medical care, lost-wage benefits and permanent disability compensation to employees who have been injured on the job, no matter who was at fault for their injuries.
As a Columbia, SC workers’ compensation attorney, I am committed to helping injured workers get the benefits they deserve. If you have been injured at work, I will work to help you pursue the full compensation you are entitled to under the workers’ comp system.
Seeking to Help Workers Obtain Full and Fair Compensation
Many people who have been injured in workplace accidents are afraid to claim workers’ comp benefits because they do not want to create trouble for themselves or anyone else. The following are a few basic points you should consider when deciding whether to bring a claim:
- Your employer cannot rightfully fire you for bringing a workers’ compensation claim
- Even if your accident was your own fault, you are likely still entitled to workers’ comp
- Your employer’s insurance company, not your boss, is almost always responsible for paying your claim
I will pursue the benefits you deserve and protect your rights as a worker. I can also advise you on your options so that you know what you are entitled to before beginning the workers’ compensation process.
Finally, if you retain me, I will carefully look into whether anyone other than your employer or a co-worker – such as an outside vendor or delivery driver – was responsible for your injuries. If so, I can help you pursue a personal injury claim in addition to workers’ comp.
