Injured workers should know their workers' compensation rights

South Carolina provides important protections for injured workers that they should be familiar with. When a worker is injured during the course of their employment, they are entitled to recover important workers' compensation benefits designed to help them with many of the challenges they may face after being injured on the job.

Workers' compensation benefits injured South Carolinian workers may be able to receive include medical expenses, temporary total compensation for lost time and wages and permanent disability benefits if the injured worker has suffered a permanent injury as a result of the workplace accident. Other types of workers' compensation benefits may be available as well in certain circumstances. Workers' compensation benefits cover both workplace injuries and workplace illnesses injured workers may suffer.

Workers' compensation benefits are a type of insurance that is available through an employer who either pays for the insurance or is self-insured. Because it is through the employer, it is important for injured workers to immediately report their injury to their supervisor. In addition, injured workers should be aware that employers are able to select the medical care provider under South Carolina law. In addition, injured workers should be familiar with their options and rights if their claim for workers' compensation benefits is denied.

It is essential for injured workers to know their workers' compensation rights and the types of benefits they may be entitled to receive. Workers' compensation benefits provide essential protections for injured workers that injured workers and their family should be familiar with.
