Workers’ Compensation In Greenville, South Carolina
It’s important to seek help immediately after you’ve suffered an injury. Don’t wait to see if it hurts less tomorrow or give it a few days to heal.
If it’s an emergency, call 911. If not, visit a physician, emergency department, or urgent care facility for an immediate evaluation.
If you wait to report the injury, it will make it harder to prove that it happened at work.
Your injury could be the result of poor training (yours or someone else’s) or serious safety violations. It could also just… happen. Sometimes it’s no one’s fault and you fell, an item fell on you, you were in a vehicle accident, or machinery malfunctioned… the possibilities are endless. The great benefit to workers’ compensation is that it’s no-fault insurance.
You don’t need to prove anyone’s fault or negligence in order to receive benefits for a work-related injury.
You only need to prove that:
- The injury happened while you were at work or engaged in tasks related to your job; and
- The injury cost you money because it required medical treatment or required you to take time off from work for treatment or recovery.
After a serious work-related accident, it can be difficult to think about next steps.
