What is the Workers' Compensation Commission?
Get a South Carolina Workers' Compensation Lawyer on Your Side
In the state of South Carolina, job injury claims are decided by the Workers'
Compensation Commission based in Columbia. The commission is made up of
seven members who are chosen by the state governor and approved by the
state Senate. Each commissioner serves a six-year term. One commissioner,
chosen by the governor, also serves as chairman for two years. If a disagreement regarding
workers' compensation comes up between an employer and employee in the state of South Carolina,
this dispute initially goes to a hearing in front of a single commissioner.
How can a workers' compensation attorney help me?
If you were hurt on the job, a skilled
South Carolina workers' compensation lawyer from our firm can represent you before the commission and fight for your
rights. Even claims that seem simple can sometimes become very complex
and disputed. The laws impacting workers' compensation in South Carolina
are often modified to suit the changing needs of the state. As a result,
these rules can be very complicated. The wisdom of hiring an attorney
who works with and understands these rules cannot be overstated. With
an experienced and skilled legal professional on your side, you might
be able to collect more than you ever thought possible.
