If you were injured on the job or have developed a deadly illness as a direct result of your job duties, then you probably have a right to make a workers’ compensation claim. Most employers in South Carolina carry this type of no-fault insurance, which entitles you to certain benefits in the event of injury.
A workers’ compensation claim can involve any work accident or incident in which serious injury or illness occurs:
- Construction site accidents
- Scaffolding accidents
- Chemical spills
- Crushing accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Trip and fall accidents
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Exposure to carcinogenic material
Getting hurt on the job can mean you are unable to work and that you lose wages as a result. It can also mean costly medical bills and rehabilitative care. Workers’ compensation is designed to compensate you for these things and others. Our experienced attorneys can work to maximize the benefits you receive.
