If you work for a covered South Carolina employer then you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if you are injured in the course of your employment from the moment you begin work.
Your injury doesn’t have to be caused only by a physical accident. Conditions or illnesses that occur over a long period of time are covered by workers’ compensation too. These include back problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and stress-related problems such as mental health issues, heart attacks, and strokes.
The first step in filing a workers’ comp claim is to give notice of your injury to your employer and requesting medical care. You are required you to give notice to your employer at the time of the accident or as soon as possible under the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Act. In repetitive trauma cases (chronic back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc), you must give your employer notice within 90 days of the date you “discovered or could have discovered by exercising reasonable diligence” that you have a compensable condition.
If you’ve been injured on the job in South Carolina, you may ask yourself – do I need to hire a workers’ comp attorney?
