South Carolina workers who are injured on the job may be entitled to compensation regardless of fault. We work to help injured employees secure weekly or lump sum compensation and medical care. The Davis Law Group is currently accepting both South Carolina and Federal Workers’ Compensation claims. While workers’ compensation laws provide certain benefits to injured employees, the system can be complicated.
If you are injured on the job the first thing you should do is immediately notify your employer. With very few exceptions, there is a strict 90-day reporting period. Thereafter, you should file a formal claim with the SC Workers Compensation Commission.
If your claim is accepted you may be entitled to receive medical treatment, but this treatment is limited to doctors chosen by your employer and their insurance carrier. One of the many pitfalls that await the unsuspecting injured worker is the insurance company’ legal right to select the treating physician. Your right to medical care and compensation will be significantly influenced by the medical providers description of both the cause of the injury as well as the severity of the injury.
The insurance company’s right to select the injured workers physician unfortunately has the potential to create a bias by the medical provider in favor of the insurance company instead of his patient–the injured worker. Remember that insurance companies are in the business of making money. They do this by minimizing the amount they pay out in claims. The insurance company will not tell you that they are communicating with the physician in an effort to influence the outcome of the medical report. The insurance company has lawyers and very experienced claims adjusters who know the system. Injured workers need legal counsel also.
The Davis Law Group is ready to fight to protect the injured workers rights in the journey though the legal system. The Davis Law Group has extensive experience representing individuals with denied and disputed workers’ compensation claims. Employees work hard for the benefit of their employer, and we make sure you are afforded the protection that you deserve. We are experienced in helping clients navigate the workers’ compensation system to give them their best chance to the legal protections and medical treatment they deserve.
