Protecting Your Rights
In general, as long as your injuries were a direct result of your employment, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. This doesn’t have to be a physical injury, though. Any illnesses acquired through your employment, such as those dealing with hazardous or cancer-causing chemicals, also constitute a case for workers’ comp.
Proving liability, however, can be a long and complex process, requiring the knowledge and experience of a qualified attorney.
Additionally, there is a two-year statute of limitations on filing a claim in both North and South Carolina.
We can help you protect your income and your earning capacity by protecting your rights and maximizing compensation you are entitled to under the law.
Our workers’ comp lawyers have worked with thousands of injured workers and helped them find the best options for securing their financial welfare.
The Workers’ Compensation Process
Workers’ compensation is designed to avoid the lengthy delays in the court system by providing compensation through a separate legal process for workers injured on the job.
The system is usually very effective for small claims involving several days or weeks out of work. Claims for serious injuries, however, will inevitably bring debate over the nature of the injuries, the amount of money you are owed, and the amount of your income used to calculate benefits.
These added complexities work in the employers’ favor, because most employees are unfamiliar or overwhelmed by the system. If you’ve been injured on the job, your main concerns are your recovery, your job, and the wellbeing and financial security of the family.
The last thing you need at this time is a bunch of added paperwork and legal ins and outs adding to the stress of the situation.
