Workers’ Compensation for Bodily Injuries in South Carolina
In some cases, it seems obvious if an injury will be covered by Workers’ Compensation or not. An employee who slips and falls at work, is injured by defective machinery in the workplace, or who becomes ill due to workplace exposure to hazardous chemicals will likely file a Workers’ Compensation claim immediately. In other situations, an employee may feel unsure whether or not their bodily injury is covered by Workers’ Compensation at all.
There are many types of bodily injuries covered by Workers’ Compensation in South Carolina. A few examples include:
- Injuries sustained as a result of a vehicle collision in which the employee was driving a company car or otherwise “on the job”
- Injuries due to a defective product in the workplace
- Falling from a great height
- Being struck by an object
- Repetitive trauma
- Workplace violence
- And more
If you are uncertain as to whether or not your injury would be covered by Workers’ Compensation, or if your initial Workers’ Comp benefits do not reflect the seriousness of your injury or the costs required for medical treatment and recovery, if may be in your best interests to speak with a legal representative about the situation.
