KINDS OF COMPENSATION THAT MAY BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR WORKPLACE INJURY

An employer’s workers’ compensation insurance typically provides coverage for the following:

  • Costs of necessary medical treatment
  • Lost wages during a period of disability
  • Compensation for permanent disability or disfigurement

Workplace injuries must be reported promptly in order to be eligible to claim benefits. Any delay could cost you thousands of dollars of valuable benefits. The law has time limits. Be careful.

Workers' compensation is designed for people who were injured on the job. If you suffered injuries because of a work-related incident, you must begin the process of applying for workers' compensation by properly informing your employer of your injury within 90 days under South Carolina law. If you do not properly notify your employer before this deadline, you may lose your right to compensation. Proper notification is critical to your case's success.

You or your lawyer must properly fill out a Form 50 or a Form 52 with the South Carolina Worker's Compensation Commission. You only have a maximum of 2 years from the date of your injury to do this in most cases, so do not delay.

Contact a South Carolina workers’ compensation attorney at George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers as soon as possible after your workplace accident. Let us do the work. We‘ll investigate your case for you, gather important evidence, and pursue the fair resolution or settlement you deserve while you recover.

WARNING: Be sure you check to see if you are entitled to additional compensation through a third-party lawsuit. This type of claim may be brought if someone other than your employer or co-workers did something careless that caused your injury.

We’ll work with you on all your claims and fight to get you every dollar you deserve.

HOW CAN AN ATTORNEY HELP WITH MY WORK INJURY CASE?

Our attorneys will help you identify every possible way to get money for your claim. Our attorneys will help ensure you don't make a mistake that could cost you thousands. Working with an attorney may help maximize your recovery. Do not delay in calling our firm to schedule a FREE consultation:

  • Don’t assume that your employer‘s insurance company lawyers will automatically give you a fair deal after a workplace injury. Workers’ compensation insurance company lawyers may be involved in defeating your claim. You may need help fighting for your rights and interests. It’s you against the insurance company.
  • Your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance lawyers may deny your claim. If so, what are you going to do? Their workers’ compensation insurance lawyers know that many employees may be reluctant to fight for what is rightfully theirs, and many fearful or uninformed injured workers won’t appeal their claim if they lose. It isn’t fair. We can help.
  • You may not receive your benefits in a timely manner. You need to pay your bills. Don’t get stuck, seek legal help. Insurance companies like keeping money.
  • Your injury may prevent you from returning to your former position. Insurance companies will often stop at nothing to avoid paying expensive permanent disability benefits. In situations involving permanent illness or disability, a knowledgeable attorney takes a giant load off of you when you are down. You may have a potential claim against a third party. You may be entitled to more money by filing a claim against a third party whose negligence contributed to your injury. This does not happen in every case. This sort of claim may be hard to discover. Having George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers trained eye on your side helps.
