Abbeville Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
If you have been injured in an accident while you were performing the functions and duties of your job, you should be aware that South Carolina law provides you the opportunity and the right to seek workers’ compensation for your injuries. When you get these benefits, you can use them to pay for your medical bills and to replace the income you have lost when you were involved in the accident that rendered you incapable, either temporarily or permanently, of doing the job for which you have been hired and trained.
What Is Workers’ Compensation in South Carolina?
Anytime you have an accident where you work, you may be eligible to file for and receive a certain type of financial benefit, commonly referred to as workers’ compensation benefits. As its name suggests, these benefits are for workers who require some amount of compensation for the income that they are missing out on, usually due to a workplace accident of one kind or another. Injuries may include but are not limited to extremities (i.e., hands, arms, legs, feet) or major body parts (i.e., head, neck, spine, brain); injuries may also be due to repetitive stress, as with carpal tunnel syndrome; they may also include an element of mental or emotional trauma.
