Understanding the Process

Workers’ compensation is designed to help workers who have been injured on the job. If you or someone you love has suffered serious harm at work, we advise you to contact our legal team as soon as possible so we can help you take the right steps that will protect your rights.

You should also keep in mind that every accident and individual is different, and that every case will be unique. Generally, however, the South Carolina workers’ comp process will proceed as follows:

  • Reporting the injury - If you suffer an injury or become ill as a result of performing a job-related duty, you must initiate the process by telling your employer about your injury within 90 days. Failing to report within the deadline may result in you losing your benefits. In cases involving work-related deaths, families will have two years to file a claim.
  • Filing a claim - You have the right to file a claim after a work accident, and our legal team can guide you through the process - as it often involves a fair amount of paper work and documentation gathering. Filing a claim will help you secure the financial compensation and benefits you need, including medical treatment.
  • Appeals / hearings - If there are disputes involved in your case - such as your employer not reporting your accident or denying your injury, or not receiving all your benefits - you can request a hearing with the workers’ compensation commissioners.
