Were You Injured on the Job? Not sure if you have a workers’ compensation claim?
Workplace injuries can affect your ability to work and your financial future. The additional costs of medical care combined with lost wages can leave you facing an uncertain future and the ability to provide for your family.
Many times workers don’t know how to file claims or what to do if injured on the job. In today’s economy it is common to fear losing one’s job even if one has been injured at work and physically cannot perform his or her duties. It is important to realize that you have rights under workers’ compensation laws.
Understanding your rights
In South Carolina employees who suffer on-the-job injuries may be entitled to benefits under their employer’s workers’ compensation policy. Most employers are required to pay for accidents that occur to you while at work. Importantly, you don’t need to prove fault if injured at work under workers compensation law. Employers carry an insurance policy that for wage replacement and your medical care in the event that you suffer a work related injury, occupational disease or death. However, to recover benefits a worker or their family must file a claim.
