How our lawyers can help you
The workers’ compensation process is meant to provide you the help that you need quickly. Medical care should be covered, and regular payments should replace a portion of your lost income. Unfortunately, getting the benefits that you deserve isn’t always so simple.
What the insurance company won’t tell you may prevent you from getting the payment you deserve. They may seem friendly, but they are not on your side. Our law firm investigates, reports your claim, responds to the insurance company and builds the evidence. We will negotiate your case. If necessary, we conduct a hearing, representing you from start to finish.

What Are the Most Common Claims for Workers’ Compensation?
The greatest risk in any job depends on the specific nature of the job. Some of the most common claims for workers’ compensation are:
- Strains and overuse injuries
- Lacerations, cuts and bruises
- Broken bones, fractures
- Traumatic brain injury
- Organ damage
- Loss of eyesight or hearing
- Exposure to disease
- Loss of limb
Workers’ compensation may cover severe and minor injuries. To qualify for benefits, the victim must require medical care, miss work or have permanent disfigurement because of their injuries. Our lawyers can evaluate your situation to determine if you qualify for benefits.
What is the meaning of workers’ compensation?
Workers’ compensation, or workman’s comp, is a benefit program available to employees who are injured on the job. The program requires employers with a certain number of employees to carry insurance. The insurance pays for medical care, replacement income and disability compensation without the worker having to prove that the employer was negligent in causing the injury.
The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission oversees and administers workers’ compensation in North Charleston and throughout the state. The law is South Carolina Code of Laws Title 42.
Things to Know About Workers’ Compensation in North Charleston, South Carolina
Eligibility: Who can get workers’ compensation?
Employers with four or more employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. When you are hurt in the scope and course of your employment, you may receive benefits.
Payment: What does South Carolina workers’ compensation pay?
South Carolina workers’ compensation pays for medical care from a provider chosen by the employer. If you are unable to work, you may receive 2/3 of your income up to the weekly maximum amounts. These amounts are based on pay before the injury. You may also receive compensation for a permanent disability incurred that does not heal with medical treatment.
Benefits paid reflect your actual, individual losses and care needs. Our lawyers work to ensure that your injuries are identified and valued correctly so that your claim is complete.
Rights: Do I have rights in a workers’ compensation claim?
Yes! You have important rights in your workers’ compensation claim. You may request a hearing if you disagree with the determination of your benefits, if your employer has not reported the claim or if they have denied your claim. There are time limits and important procedures to follow.
Challenges: What are the most common problems with workers’ compensation claims?
Common problems with workers’ compensation claims are:
- Ensuring that the injury is reported properly
- Understanding how to seek medical care from an employer-approved provider
- Determining if your calculation of wage benefits is correct
- Filing for a hearing if benefits are incorrect
- Documenting the case with medical evidence and the other information needed for success
