Goose Creek Work Injury Lawyers

Goose Creek Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been injured at work, South Carolina offers workers compensation for your injuries through a workers’ compensation claim. In the case of workplace injuries, the employer is responsible, and the injured employee does not have to prove that their employer – or anyone else – was negligent. An injured worker can recover compensation for lost earnings, medical expenses and other benefits.

At the Steinberg Law Firm, we represent employees in all types of workers’ compensation claims to help them recover for the costs associated with their injury or illness. Our South Carolina workers’ compensation lawyers have over 170 years of combined legal experience handling workers’ compensation claims and possess the knowledge and professionalism to handle your case from beginning to end with the utmost care and consideration. We have recovered over $500 million for our clients and look forward to helping you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Third-party lawsuits

While Goose Creek workers’ compensation does not allow an employee to file a lawsuit against their employer, the employee may file a claim against the third parties involved if they were a contributing factor to the workplace accident. Third party lawsuit action may be necessary to uncover the compensation the victim of workplace injury deserves. Third parties that may be liable for personal injury include:

  • Company drivers
  • Public utility providers
  • Outside vendors
  • Supervisors other than the employer
  • Defective equipment manufacturers
  • Project managers

Discuss your workers’ compensation case

A lawsuit against a third party may be made while pursuing workers compensation. It is crucial, however, to discuss your case with an experienced work injury attorney with Steinberg Law Firm in order to follow the right path to recover your benefits and compensation. If you do not do so, you may miss a vital step in the process and your benefits may be terminated or you will not maximize your reward potential.

Common Work-Related Accidents

Serious workplace accidents can occur in any occupation, even those that are not traditionally thought of as dangerous. The most common types of accidents on the job are:

Regardless of the type of injury you suffered, the dedicated Goose Creek workers’ comp attorneys at Steinberg Law Firm can help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve. However, it is crucial to act quickly to preserve your rights.

You have 90 days to report an on-the-job injury. Still, you are encouraged to report your injury as soon as possible to lessen the chances of your claim being denied by the insurance company or your employer.

Damages Available in a Goose Creek Workers’ Comp Claim

Workers injured in a Goose Creek workplace accident may be entitled to various benefits, depending on their injuries. The following are the types of damages that are available in a workers’ comp claim.

You are entitled to:

Medical care

This includes visits to the doctor, surgery, prescriptions, etc. If you go to your own physician, your expenses will not be paid. If you visit a doctor chosen by your employer’s insurance company, they are paid directly.

Lost wages

You are temporarily totally disabled (TTD) if you are not able to work as a result of injury/illness. During this period, you can obtain compensation for the wages you would have earned had you been able to keep working during your recovery period.

Permanent partial disability

Permanent partial disability (PPD) applies if you are permanently impaired. You receive two-thirds of your average weekly wage, subject to the same weekly maximum as TTD.

Permanent total disability

Permanent total disability (PTD) refers to the loss of both legs, arms, feet, hands, loss of vision, in both eyes or a combination of such losses. Workers considered to be permanently totally disabled may receive more benefits.

To file a successful workers’ compensation claim in Goose Creek, the injured party needs to be aware of certain limitations. First, the victim is not typically able to sue an employer. Second, the employee must file their claim with the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission. Lastly, the benefits will most likely be lower than would be available through a personal injury lawsuit against a third party.


If you or someone you love has recently been injured in a Goose Creek workplace accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation through either a personal injury or workers’ compensation claim. However, South Carolina worker’s compensation and personal injury laws are complex. Contact a skilled work injury attorney today with Steinberg Law Firm LLC.
