What to Do about a Workers Comp Denial in South Carolina

Written by John D. Hawkins on . Posted in .

When you file your South Carolina workers compensation claim, you want the full benefits you need to help you overcome your injuries. Unfortunately, your recovery isn’t always so easy. Instead, you might have found a denial waiting for you.

Dealing with a work comp denial can be difficult, but you’ll have a chance to take action on behalf of your claim. However, you may not know how to successfully approach a workers comp denial in South Carolina. If you’re not familiar with the laws and details of your denial, you may be stumped on how to proceed.

Fortunately, you’ll have a chance to look into your denial and work to get the full benefits you deserve. If you’re struggling to get your claim approved, make sure you’re taking these steps to fight back for your benefits before time runs out.

Attend Your Work Comp Hearings

When pushing back against your denial, you and your attorney may choose to meet with your employer for mediation, although this is not mandatory for any denied claim in South Carolina. You also don’t have to reach an agreement during mediation.

If you can’t, however, you may need to attend a formal hearing to obtain benefits from the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission. This meeting will help you respond to the insurers and show that you should receive workers comp for your accident.

In such an instance, your case would be heard by the workers compensation commissioner. A commissioner will hear both sides of the dispute and review the evidence.
