Frequently Asked Questions

What are some of the most common work related injuries?

South Carolina workers’ compensation cases often involve many common injuries. Most work injuries are minor, only needing one or two trips to the doctor’s and a few days off work. But other injuries can be quite serious, requiring months of treatment and possibly years off of work, or permanent disabilities or even death. Here are some standard work related injuries that we see most often.

  • Spinal cord injuries in the neck and lower back including bulging
    and herniated discs, cervical and lumbar fusions, broken or
    fractured vertebrae, and degenerative disc disease caused from years
    of repetitive movement;

  • Shoulder injuries such as rotator cuff tears, dislocated shoulders,
    and degenerative conditions that require shoulder replacement
    surgery;

  • Knee injuries such as dislocated knees, torn ACL, MCL or other
    ligaments, and degenerative conditions requiring total knee
    replacement;

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, causing severe pain and numbness in the
    hands and fingers and is caused by severely repetitive motions with
    the hands and wrists during work activities;

  • Broken bones due to trip and falls or being entangled with a
    machine;

  • Lacerations, amputations and burns due to unsafe work activities;

  • Overexertion injuries causing pulled muscles and ligaments in
    various parts of the body;

  • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic
    Dystrophy (RSD);

  • Lung injuries from inhaling toxic fumes or from working in factories
    for a long time, contracting COPD;

  • Accidents that cause a fatality.
