If you have been injured on the job in Ladson, it is important that you have a legal team behind you with the experience, the commitment and the skill to help you receive the benefits and compensation you deserve.
Generally, all injuries incurred as a direct result of employment are subject to workers’ comp benefits. Your work-related injury does not have to be sudden and immediate; for example, there are many types of injuries that develop over time due to repetitive stress and other activities. Your injuries may also include illness developed over years of dealing with hazardous chemicals and other toxic substances.
While almost all work-related injuries are covered under your employer’s workers’ comp insurance policy or the state of South Carolina’s policy for uninsured employers, successfully proving your claim can be a long and complicated process that requires specialized knowledge.

What Is Covered Under Workers’ Comp Insurance?
Workers’ compensation provides a number of benefits for different types of work-related injuries. Workers’ comp benefits include payment for medical expenses, including hospital and rehab services, prescription medication and travel costs.
Workers’ comp also provides payments for different types of disability. The amount you may recover under a workers’ comp policy depends on the nature and duration of your disability, e.g., whether it is temporary, permanent, partial or total disability. In instances of permanent disability, you may be entitled to receive benefits up to two-thirds of your wages (up to $700 per week) that may continue for up to 500 weeks.
Whatever type of injury you sustained at your workplace, our attorneys know you are more than a knee or a shoulder — you are a person. While no amount of benefit may ever be able to fully compensate you for your injury, you can count on us to get you the full benefits you deserve.
