Bamberg Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Workers’ Compensation Workers’ Compensation Lawyers For Injured Workers In The South Carolina Low Country And Surrounding Areas
If you were injured on the job in South Carolina, chances are you are entitled to receive paid medical treatment and wage benefits through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance or self-insurance fund. If you live and work in the Low Country or surrounding area, turn to the law office of Michael C. Tanner, L.L.C., for help. Getting your workers’ compensation claim approved should be a matter of demonstrating your work-related injury or illness.
Unfortunately, employers often put up roadblocks, threaten retaliation or simply don’t report the workplace accident to their insurance provider.
We Help You Get the Level of Benefits You Are Entitled To
Whether you are filing an initial claim or appealing a denied claim, we can help. Attorneys Michael Tanner and Rose McLeod Osborne have years of experience helping injured workers file successful claims on time.
Workers’ compensation benefits include:
- Medical treatment: You are entitled to receive paid medical treatment from a workers’ compensation-approved health care provider.
- Wage benefits: Depending upon the level of your disability, you are entitled to receive two-thirds of your average weekly earnings while you are out of work. Benefits are calculated against your average weekly pay for 52 weeks prior to your injury. If you are able to return to work at a reduced level of pay, you are entitled to receive pay differential compensation to make up for reduced earnings.
- Lump sum payment: If you are diagnosed with a permanent partial or total disability, you may be eligible to receive a single lump sum payment for the settlement amount.
