Workers Comp Attorney in North Charleston
South Carolina has workers’ compensation laws to protect the victims of on-the-job injuries. An injured worker does not need to prove that the employer caused the injury to recover benefits from workers’ comp. The worker must only prove that the injury occurred in the course and scope of the worker’s employment.
On the job injuries don’t just include back injuries suffered from heavy lifting. No matter your job, no matter your pay, if you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact the Deaton Law Firm, LLC, to discuss your case and determine whether your injury entitles you to compensation. Even if you believe that you may not have a claim, contact the Deaton Law Firm, LLC, and attorney Rad S. Deaton will determine if he can help.
Injured employees may be entitled to be compensated for a variety of things, including lost earnings, permanent injuries, past and future medical expenses if related to the injury suffered. If injured on the job, make sure to notify your employer immediately. Your claim could be denied if you do not notify your employer of your injury within 90 days of the date you knew you were injured. You may be eligible to receive up to two-thirds of your weekly wages despite your being out of work due to injury.
