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 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.

The bill collectors were calling and my head was spinning – I didn’t know what to do. I was unable to work. They jumped right on it! They made me feel like I was important. It felt really good to know someone else was taking care of me. Once we tried to get some information from the insurance company, they didn’t want to cooperate. After we turned everything over to George Sink, we didn’t have any more problems!
