What Medical Compensation Will I Receive If I Am Injured On the Job?
If you are injured on the job, under South Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation system, you are entitled to all necessary medical treatment that is likely to lessen your disability. This treatment generally includes:
- Hospital stays
- Medical supplies
- Prescription medication
You will need to see the doctor chosen by your employer in order to receive these benefits. The first step in receiving your medical compensation benefits is to notify your employer of the injury and file your workers’ compensation claim.
The workers’ compensation claim process can be lengthy and complicated. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help ensure that your claims process goes as smoothly as possible and that you receive the compensation you are due by law.
