What Should You Do for Worker’s Compensation

If you are injured while at work, you should be entitled to 100% compensation for medical expenses and some lost wages (if you are unable to perform your duties while recovering). Like many states, however, South Carolina has a limited timeframe for job injury claims. That is why we recommend immediately reporting any incidents to your employer and obtaining the appropriate legal representation. As time passes, it will become more difficult to prove that your job caused your injury. So, it is essential to provide your employer with written notification of the specific injury’s date, time, and nature. You should not rely on your employer or the insurance company to give you the benefit of the doubt regarding your claim; it is up to you to be quick and specific when reporting a workplace injury.

Many employers require that you complete an accident form, and if so, be sure to do so as soon as you can. Much like the available window of time for reporting injuries. The lack of an appropriate incident report could result in a denial of benefits. Regarding worker’s compensation, it is always best to ensure you’re following all the rules.
