Some accidents are the result of an employer's wrongdoing. Other accidents occur due to an employee's own negligence. In South Carolina, it does not matter who was at fault for your on-the-job injury. So long as the injury was not intentional, or the result of drug/alcohol use, you can recover workers' compensation benefits.
Negligence plays no role in South Carolina's workers' compensation system. The law is only interested in whether you got hurt at work - not whose fault it was. If your employer, an insurance company, or anyone else tries to tell you that you cannot receive workers' comp benefits because the accident was your fault, they're wrong. Don't allow yourself to be misinformed and mistreated - we are here to help. For a free consultation, as well as free copies of my books, call me today at 803-790-2800.
