As a South Carolina worker, one of your first concerns may be about your eligibility for benefits. You know that you were injured at work, but that doesn’t mean you’re sure how to get your compensation. While many workplaces do provide this information, you might have a difficult time finding it.
Fortunately, the majority of Lexington workers should be covered by their employers. However, there are a few types of workers who may need help getting workers comp benefits or a settlement for their injuries. If you fall into the following categories of workers, you may need an attorney’s help with your recovery:
Once you’ve found whether your employer carries workers comp insurance, you’ll need to act to get your compensation. Generally, you’ll have just ninety days to notify your employer. You’ll need to file a claim reporting your injury and requesting workers comp benefits.
After that, the insurance company will review your claim. They’ll determine whether your injuries should be covered by workers comp benefits. They’ll also determine how much these benefits would be worth and how long you should receive them.
This decision-making process should be quick. Injured employees need answers fast, so you should get a quick response about your claim. You’ll receive a letter either approving or denying your claim. An approval letter should also include your benefits and the details about your claim, such as when your benefits will begin.
If you’ve been injured at work, you don’t have to suffer alone. Instead, you can seek out help from a work comp lawyer, who can help you get the compensation you need for recovery.
