Workers' Compensation Process
Do you know how to apply for workers' compensation benefits after
a workplace accident? At George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers, we have helped
many hurt workers get the payout they were entitled to for injuries sustained
at work. Remember, regardless of who is at fault for the accident, you
could be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.
Temporary Total Disability
"Temporary total disability" (TTD) payments are made over the
period of time it takes you to reach "maximum medical improvement."
If a doctor says that you are unable to work, or in some other circumstances,
these benefits may be extended. Typically, TTD payments do not last longer
than 500 weeks. There is also a maximum amount that can be paid per week.
Calculating TTD is challenging, and it is good to have a knowledgeable
workers' compensation lawyer on your side to help maximize your recovery.
Impairment Rating & Disability
A doctor will need to make an official determination about how well or
capable you are following your injury. He or she will use a set of guidelines
to come up with a percentage of impairment, judging how easily you are
able to perform certain "activities of daily living" such as
sleeping, walking, eating, hearing, speaking, sitting, traveling, and so on.
Workers' Compensation Commission
It is important to submit your claim to the Workers' Compensation
Commission within two years of your injury in order to receive the benefits
you deserve. This commission is designed to settle South Carolina workers'
compensation disputes. It is very wise to have a workers' compensation
attorney on your side if you have a hearing in front of the Workers Compensation
