When you’re hurt at work, you may need to fight back to get the full benefits you deserve. Make sure you have a lawyer on your side for help handling your Summerville work accident.

When you’re at work, an accident, injury, or illness can happen anytime. Whether you’re in a vehicle, working with dangerous substances, or simply repeating a motion too often, you could suffer an injury that leaves you unable to return to work.

In the time you’re unable to work, you’ll need work comp benefits, which a workers comp lawyer serving Summerville can help you with. If you’re struggling to recover after a work injury, contact the lawyers at HawkLaw, PA for help filing or appealing your South Carolina workers comp claim.

Summerville injury and work comp cases are primarily handled out of our Charleston office.

Eligibility for Workers Comp

After your injury or illness, one of your first concerns may be whether you’re able to seek out the compensation you need. Fortunately, most employers are required to offer workers compensation insurance for their employees. That way, their employees are covered if they’re hurt because of their job.

However, there are some workers who may not be eligible for this compensation. Some may have alternate forms of coverage for work accidents, while others may need to file an injury claim against their employer instead. While there are few employees who are ineligible, you’ll need to know before you file.

If you’re one of the following exceptions to South Carolina’s workers compensation coverage, seek out a lawyer for help seeking compensation outside of workers comp:

  • Agricultural workers
  • Employees in businesses with fewer than four employees
  • Some casual employees
  • Corporate officers
  • Railway employees

Benefits for Summerville Workers

Once you’ve determined that you’re eligible, you’ll then need to seek out your workers comp benefits. You may be eligible for any of the following:

  • Medical Care – After your accident, you shouldn’t have to pay for your medical expenses. Your employer should cover any reasonable costs for your recovery.
  • Total Disability Benefits – While you’re unable to work, you should receive benefits that replace some of your wages. The amount will depend on your original wages, but you may receive two-thirds of your weekly wages.
  • Partial Disability Benefits – If you’re permanently impaired but able to return to work in some capacity, you may receive benefits for your loss. These benefits will cover a certain number of weeks while you transition to a less-strenuous position.
