Have You Lost Wages Because of an Injury? We Can Help.

If you have missed work because of another's wrongdoing, you came to the right place. In South Carolina, if you've been injured by another person or entity's negligence, you can recover lost wages—so long as you prove the following:
1. You must establish liability, meaning that you must prove that another person or entity is at fault for your injury.
2. You must prove that the injury made it impossible for you to continue working. This may require documentation from a doctor.
3. You will need documentation stating the amount of time you have been unable to work, as well as the amount of money you have lost. If you work for someone else, we will provide you with a lost-wage statement to take to your supervisor. He or she can then fill out the form, confirming the amount of time and money that you have lost because of your inability to work. If you are self-employed, you may have to prove your lost wages by producing tax returns or payments which were made to third parties that you had to hire in order to fulfill the duties that you are usually responsible for.

As long as the law and medical evidence is clear, you may be able to regain the full amount that you have lost. If you have questions about lost wages, contact Kenneth Berger today.
