What You Can Recover from a South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Claim
You may be able to receive compensation for your medical bills as well as a portion of your lost wages. Usually, you can receive two-thirds of your pre-injury wages for a certain amount of time, depending on how long your recovery takes.
You will have to see an authorized physician who will assess your injuries, and you may be assigned a rating for your impairment. This rating will determine how much compensation you can receive. Once they deem you able to return to work, you may also receive compensation if you cannot perform the same duties and earn your pre-injury income.

Make Sure You Follow Through with Your Medical Treatment
It is imperative that you follow through with your doctor’s orders and show up for your appointments. Failure to do so can result in a denial of workers’ compensation benefits. An insurer can argue that you worsened your condition by forgoing medical treatment.
Medical documentation can also help you seek fair compensation. If you suffer temporary or permanent injuries, a documented prognosis from a doctor can help you pursue an appropriate amount of benefits for the full duration of your recovery.
You May Be Able to File a Lawsuit Against a Third Party
In some cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit for your injury. For example, if your accident resulted from defective construction equipment, you have a right to hold the manufacturer liable for damages. Similarly, if a driver hit you while you were on the job, they may bear liability for your losses.
A personal injury lawsuit may allow you to recover additional awards that a workers’ compensation claim would not yield, such as pain and suffering and loss of quality of life.
Our attorneys can look at every aspect of your workplace injury case to determine the liable parties. Then, we can help get you the money you deserve either through a claim or legal action.
