Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim in SC
Talk to Columbia Injury Attorney James Snell
If you have been injured in a work-related accident, or if you wish to
be prepared in the event that this occurs, then you may greatly benefit
from understanding the process of filing a
workers' compensation claim. The process begins with an injury. If you are injured at work,
then you need to notify your employer who will provide you with the necessary
documents for filing a claim. You will fill these out and give them to
your supervisor, who will also fill out documents, and then they will
file this claim with the workers' compensation coordinator within
two days of your injury.
If your injuries are so severe that you are unable to file this claim within
the allotted time, then there are other documents that you can file in
order to correct this situation. Once the claim has been sent to the workers'
comp coordinator, they will compile the claim along with other documents
and send it to the insurance carrier as well as the South Carolina Department
of Labor. The insurance carrier will then launch an investigation into
the accident and either deny or accept your claim and apply the appropriate
benefits for your situation.
