If you were hurt on the job in South Carolina, you should immediately notify your employer. The company is then suppose to contact its workers' compensation insurance carrier, which in turn will set up a claim. The insurance company should also file certain forms with the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission (WCC).
However, should your employer refuse to inform the insurance company of your injury, you have options. You may contact the WCC directly. Another option is to hire an attorney who can guide your through our state's workers' comp system. My firm represents injured workers on a contingency fee basis, meaning that our fee is contingent upon how much money we obtain for you at the end of your case.
