The South Carolina workers’ compensation system is supposed to help those who have been hurt on the job. However, all too often, deep-pocketed insurance companies use their legal prowess to exploit the system and avoid paying injured workers the benefits they deserve.
Mickle & Bass employs two former South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commissioners. Workers’ Comp Commissioners are hearing officers appointed by the governor of South Carolina. They travel throughout the state of South Carolina to hold hearings in a wide range of workers’ comp claims. Workers’ Comp Commissioners make decisions concerning money benefits and medical treatment in contested cases. The former Workers’ Comp Commissioners at Mickle & Bass presided over thousands of workers’ comp cases and gained extensive insights into how insurance companies fight these claims. Now, our dedicated team puts that knowledge to use in crafting smart legal strategies as we fight for the benefits our injured clients deserve.
In South Carolina, a work-related accident that would qualify for Workers’ Compensation benefits generally involves an injury or illness that occurs while an employee is performing their job duties or is engaged in activities related to their employment. Some examples of situations that could qualify include:
It’s important to note that each case is unique, and whether an injury qualifies for Workers’ Compensation benefits depends on various factors, including the specific circumstances of the accident and whether the injury is directly related to work activities. If you’re dealing with a potential work-related injury, it’s recommended to consult with legal experts or professionals experienced in workers’ compensation law to understand your rights and options.
