Workers’ compensation coverage

South Carolina workers’ compensation law states that you are entitled to the following benefits when injured on the job:

  • Medical treatment and prescriptions for your work-related injuries

Degrees of disability

If you are unable to return to work after seven days, you are entitled to weekly temporary benefits equal to two-thirds of your average weekly wage.

If your job injury resulted in any permanent impairment, you may be entitled to long-term disability benefits even if you are able to return to work. The firm’s persistent lawyers ensure that your disability status is correctly diagnosed and that you receive the benefits that state law provides.
