Determining the Validity of a Charleston Workers’ Compensation Claim
If you have been injured during the performance of your job, no matter how minor an incident, report it immediately to your employer and have an accident report completed. If you have an accident at work or contract an illness as a result of a work-related hazard, it is generally going to be a valid claim. Most South Carolina employers and employees, with certain exceptions, are presumed to be covered by the State’s Workers’ Compensation Act. Employers covered by the provisions of the Act are required to maintain insurance sufficient for the payment of compensation. If a company does not have workers’ compensation insurance, then they will have to provide satisfactory evidence to the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission of its ability to compensate an injured employee in the amount and manner due as a result of an approved claim.
