Businesses in South Carolina are generally required to have workers' compensation insurance to ensure any workplace injuries are covered. If you or a loved one have been hurt on the job, you may be wondering about what type of recourse is available to you. Our Mt. Pleasant, SC personal injury attorneys at Lawton Law Firm can ensure you are aware of your rights and options.
Seeking medical care after you have been injured on the job is your first priority. Speaking with a qualified lawyer should be the next step. Your employer may attempt to offer you a settlement or ask you to sign paperwork in exchange for your agreement not to file a claim. The best thing to do is contact an experienced Worker’s Compensation attorney to get proper legal advice. You may be able to sue a responsible third party in certain situations.
Workers' compensation is expected to cover your injuries and medical care, in addition to lost wages. However, if a third party (such as a manufacturing defect) was responsible for your injuries, you may have grounds for an additional lawsuit. Our Mt. Pleasant, SC workers' compensation attorneys can use our extensive knowledge and skill to pursue damages on your behalf.
If your employer is denying your claim, or you need help in navigating the workers' compensation process, we can assist you. When you choose our firm, we put our resources and experience to work for you.
