SC Workers’ Compensation Benefits: What are They?
South Carolina law allows for those employees who have been injured on the job or at work to ask for and receive certain financial compensation from their employers; these benefits are referred to as workers’ compensation benefits. They are intended to provide coverage for you when you are unable to work due to an accident or when you sustained mental or physical injuries while carrying out the functions of your employment. Sometimes accidents happen through no fault of your own, and that is why employers carry this kind of insurance coverage.
Oconee County Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
In Oconee County, if you have been injured at work or while performing your employment duties, you have every right to seek professional legal counsel. The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys with The Law Office of Stephen M Krause PA are here to help you through what otherwise might be a tremendous burden to you and your family; legal processes can be complex and time-consuming, but when you know that you can trust the care of your case to someone as familiar with these types of cases as we are, you can rest easy and focus on the more important task that only you can do – heal – so that you can get back on your feet sooner, and with as little drama as possible.

Why You Should File for Workers’ Compensation Benefits in South Carolina
First and foremost, filing for workers’ compensation benefits is your right in the state of South Carolina. We have helped individuals just like you get the benefits they deserve for things as varied as traumatic brain injuries (TBI); repetitive stress injuries (RSI); back, neck, head, and spine injuries; arm, hand, shoulder, elbow, and wrist injuries; leg, knee, ankle, and feet injuries; and mental/emotional damage. Getting injured at work shouldn’t happen, but on occasion, it does; if you fail to report the accident, or if you decide not to file for the benefits to which you are entitled, you are doing yourself and everyone else that works there (now and into the future) a disservice.
Beyond that, if your absence from work means you will be missing out on multiple paychecks, that may have a dramatic and even catastrophic impact on your family financial situation; you owe it to yourself and your family to try to compensate for that loss by seeking the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to.
