Workers' Compensation Archives

Those denied workers' compensation may have hearing rights

While some types of occupations, such as construction work or firefighting, have inherent dangers, the fact of the matter is that anyone can suffer a workplace injury or illness. Even if you work in an office you could trip over torn carpet or injure yourself trying to lift something heavy. Therefore, it is important for all residents of South Carolina to understand their rights with regards to workers' compensation, including the right to a hearing.

When will one stop receiving workers' compensation benefits?

When a person in South Carolina is injured or made ill on the job, temporary workers' compensation benefits can be the financial lifeline they need to get by monetarily while they cannot work. However, as the name implies, temporary benefits will not last forever. Therefore, it is important to understand when your temporary workers' compensation benefits will end.

Those injured on-the-job may seek workers' compensation benefits

Most people in South Carolina work hard to provide for themselves and their family. So, when they are injured on the job and cannot work, they may be concerned about how they will bring home the income needed to pay for their medical care, keep food on the table and a keep a roof over their head. Fortunately, South Carolina's workers' compensation system provides a means for a worker to be compensated if they suffer a workplace injury.

Set blame aside in the initial stages after a work injury

Accidents happen. You're cutting up vegetables at home for a salad and you slice your finger. It's no one else's fault. You get whatever first aid you need, maybe even stitches. You might pay for some of that care out of pocket. Insurance will probably cover the rest. You don't expect someone else to pay. It can be easy to carry that same thought process over to the work environment.
