Workers’ Compensation FAQ Landing Page
Were you injured on the job? You have a right to file a workers’ compensation claim for benefits during the period you are unable to work, and to pay all of the medical bills associated with the injury or condition. The system limits the amount of compensation an injured worker can collect, based on the type and severity of the injuries. The system is highly complex, and the state denies many claims initially. Numerous complications can arise, including the following:
- Your employer failed to report your injury as required by state law.
- The doctor says you are ready to return to work when you are not sufficiently recovered.
- You disagree with the report regarding the severity of your injury or condition from the doctor you were required to visit.
- Your claim was denied.
- Your employer is contesting the fact that you were injured on the job.
- Your claim was submitted but is missing adequate documentation, with the claim denied.
- A hearing was held but the claim was denied.
- Your loved one is permanently disabled or died, and you are unsure of where to turn for help.
It can be extremely difficult to navigate the South Carolina workers’ compensation system. In many cases, the injuries are extensive and extremely painful, leaving the injured person unable to concentrate on the critical details such as filing forms and meeting submission deadlines. A report about your injury must be filed within 90 days or you could lose the ability to get benefits. Are you worried about meeting the legal requirements?
