Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a workers’ compensation lawyer? Shouldn’t I just contact the insurance company by myself?

Having the right workers’ compensation lawyers on your side, fighting for your rights and the benefits you deserve will go a long way in keeping you and your family safe and financially secure. The Charleston workers’ compensation lawyers at Steinberg Law Firm have handled thousands of workers’ compensation cases dealing with every issue possible. Let us use our experience to help you through this troubling time.

When you are injured at work, some employers do not like that at all. They do not want their workers’ compensation insurance premiums to go up, which happens from time to time when there are a lot of work injuries. Often, employers will try to convince you to not report the injury and suffer through it. These unscrupulous practices are against South Carolina’s workers’ compensation laws.

Furthermore, these employers and their insurance companies have a team of adjusters, lawyers and private investigators working day and night to pay you as little money as possible or not even pay you at all.

You should have a team of highly trained, highly skilled South Carolina workers’ compensation lawyers on your side. The attorneys and staff at the Steinberg Law Firm will aggressively represent you all the way from the initial phone call to investigating the accident and making sure you are paid the benefits that you deserve. There are many things that we will do for you to fight and win your claim:

  • Explaining to you in common sense terms the work injury laws in South Carolina and what types of benefits you deserve;
  • Gathering all of the appropriate documentation such as accident/injury reports from the employer, medical records and witness statements before we draft and file your claim with the workers’ compensation judge;
  • We will determine what amount your wage benefits should be and explain to you the law in how your weekly wage benefits are calculated;
  • Determine if you are owed any lost wages and, if so, how much, along with calculating the appropriate interest on past due wages;
  • Preparing you to testify at hearings before the judge, if necessary, along with any witnesses that are required to prove your claim;
  • Hire and take the depositions of any treating physicians or medical experts that will be necessary to prove that your disability is related to a provable work injury;
  • Ensure that all of your work-related medical bills are paid, including any money for possible future treatment that might be necessary;
  • When the right time comes, negotiating with the insurance company for a fair and honest settlement of your claim to ensure you are fully compensated for your medical bills and lost wages and lost earning capacity going into the future;
  • If your disability is permanent, making sure that you and your family will be fully taken care of in the future.
