Protecting South Carolina Workers
If you were injured on the job in South Carolina, you may be entitled to receive paid medical treatment and wage benefits through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance or self-insurance fund. Unfortunately, employers often put up roadblocks, threaten retaliation or simply don’t report the workplace accident to their insurance provider.
If you live and work in the Lowcountry or the surrounding area, Michael C. Tanner, L.L.C., can work with you to demonstrate your work-related injury or illness and pursue the financial support you deserve.
Helping You Secure The Benefits You Need
Securing workers’ compensation benefits is an essential step toward recovering from a workplace injury. Benefits can 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.
