While most South Carolina workers are covered by workman’s comp insurance, you may have to get your compensation through other methods if your employer doesn’t provide this coverage. Almost all employees in South Carolina should have workers’ compensation coverage, with only a few exceptions, such as:
South Carolina workers’ compensation coverage is an important form of insurance that’s in place to protect you from all workplace injuries and illnesses regardless of the cause. That means that you should be covered whether you fall on your way to the bathroom, get into an accident to meet a client, develop a repetitive motion injury, have an accident working with heavy machinery, or suffer any other work-related injury or impairment.
Sadly, many people who apply for South Carolina workers’ compensation find their claims unfairly denied. There are many reasons why this happens, but it’s not the end of the world when it does. The workers’ comp law firm of Hawklaw, P.A., can fight for your rights and fight to secure you the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
Most of us spend more of our lives at our jobs than anywhere else. We need safe and secure working environments so we can perform our jobs as exceptionally as possible. When an employer is responsible for unsafe working conditions that cause an accident, that employer must be held accountable. That’s where South Carolina workers’ compensation lawyers come into the picture.
Workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to be in place for that reason: to be sure that injured workers get covered for workplace injuries regardless of why the job injury may have happened. Unfortunately, the insurance company is always looking for reasons to deny or cancel these benefits.

South Carolina workers’ compensation insurance offers a wide range of benefits for work-related injuries. Benefits cover medical expenses and care needs from your job injury, plus partial wage compensation based on your average weekly wage. You don’t even need to be full-time to collect benefits. Injured employees may be entitled:
SC workers’ compensation does not cover some accidents. If your accident was not in the expected performance of your work duties, you might not be approved. If, for example, you have a car accident on your way to meet a client during your workday as part of your duties, your workplace injuries may be covered. On the other hand, if you have a car accident on your way to work or after work, you may not be covered.
If your workplace accident comes from a slip and fall on your way to the bathroom, the injuries you suffer count as workplace injuries. If you develop carpal tunnel from years of repetitive motion, this counts as well. On the other hand, if you get hurt during horseplay with another employee, workers’ compensation insurance may not approve you.
