Workers’ Compensation Law in South Carolina
If you or someone you love has been injured on the job, you should know that in South Carolina, every employee has the right to file for and receive workers’ compensation benefits; that is a type of financial benefit you can get if you have suffered some sort of injury while at work that impedes your ability to continue work, either temporarily or permanently. Employers have a responsibility to take every precaution to ensure the safety of each of their employees, regardless of the inherent safety risks of a particular job. If you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits, you may have your medical bills paid for, along with compensation for lost wages and temporary or permanent disability.
