Not just for disputes…
A lot of people believe they would only need a South Carolina Workers’ Comp lawyer if there is a dispute in their case – their employer denies the injury occurred at work or the company doctor and your doctor have different opinions about your recovery.

They will also help to ensure you don’t miss important deadlines. A lawyer protects your claim and uses their experience to maximize your settlement.
