Eligibility for South Carolina Workers Comp

When you’re injured in a work accident, one of your main concerns may be whether you’re eligible for a workers comp claim. Your employer may have work comp insurance, but not every employer is required to carry this coverage.

Typically, if an employer has more than four employees, they’re required to carry workers comp insurance. However, there are exceptions to this rule. For example, proprietors and members of a limited-liability company, or LLC, may not be required to carry insurance. Agricultural or railway workers may also lack workers comp coverage.

If you’re concerned that you don’t have the benefits you need for your compensation, you may need help to get compensated. Your attorney serving Mount Pleasant can help you determine whether you’re eligible and what your options are if you’re not.
