of rules that govern the payments you are eligible to receive. At George

Don't Miss Your Only Chance to Apply for Workers' Compensation
in South Carolina
Workers' compensation is designed for people who were permanently injured
on the job, no matter whose fault the accident may have been. If you received
injuries or fell ill because of a work-related incident, you must begin
the process of applying for workers' compensation by informing your
employer of your injury
within 90 days. If you do not properly notify your employer before this deadline, you
may lose your right to compensation. Doing this properly is critical to
your case's success.
After this, you must fill out a Form 50 or a Form 52 with the South Carolina
Worker's Compensation Commission.
You only have two years from the date of your injury to do this, so do not hesitate! It is important
to receive treatment from a physician of your employers' choice in
order to be covered by workers' compensation - with the exception
of emergency rooms in the event of urgent medical need.

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!
