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.
