What are Workers’ Compensation Benefits in South Carolina?
Workers’ compensation benefits are financial benefits you may receive if you have been injured at work or in the process of doing your job (sometimes that may include times that you were or were not on company property). Employers have a responsibility to protect their employees from harm and accident as much as they can, and they are legally required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in order to cover themselves for the times when employees do become injured for one reason or another.
Filing Your Claim for Workers’ Compensation in South Carolina
As is the case with many types of lawsuits, a workers’ compensation claim can be very complex, and the process can be intimidating; there are very detailed legal steps you will need to take if you are trying to file an initial claim, or if your initial claim was denied and you are attempting to appeal that denial.
