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.
