Frequently Asked Questions

How does the workers’ compensation judge calculate how much money you get?

When calculating the amount of benefits you will receive on a weekly basis, the Judge looks at your gross average weekly wage. In most cases, an injured worker will receive two-thirds of their gross average weekly wage every week that the work injury causes them to be off work. There are a few exceptions to this general rule.

If your average weekly wage is $75/week or less, then you will receive 100 percent of your wages each week that you are off. The other exception involves the state of South Carolina, every year, setting the top limit of average weekly wage that a worker can receive, no matter how much money they makes in the average week. Therefore, if you are a highly paid worker and you are hurt, your weekly wage benefit will be lowered to the state mandated average weekly wage.
