Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Lawyers | Hilton Head, Bluffton & Myrtle Beach

Hilton Head, Bluffton & Myrtle Beach workers' compensation lawyers

While on-the-job and workplace injuries are likely covered by workers’ compensation laws, it is advisable that immediately upon being injured, an employee should notify his or her employer and obtain legal advice or retain Hilton Head, Bluffton or Myrtle Beach workers’ compensation lawyers. It is not uncommon for an employer to deny knowledge of the injury, assert that the injured person is an independent contractor and not an employee, or entirely deny knowledge of the injured person when the employer has paid the injured person in cash only. These are just some of the reasons why you may want to seek legal advice from a workers compensation attorney in Hilton Head, Bluffton and Myrtle Beach.

An injured employee may be entitled to medical treatment for the injures sustained, a certain amount of money during the time period for which the injured worker cannot work and has been held out of work by a doctor, and money and other compensation for permanent scars and injuries.

Failure of an injured employee to properly and timely notify and file a claim for an on-the-job or workplace injury may result in the injured employee being forever barred from later asserting a claim under workers’ comp laws. Your Hilton Head, Bluffton and Myrtle Beach workers’ compensation lawyers should advise you of your rights and work with the insurance adjuster or opposing party to obtain all of the benefits you are entitled to under the workers’ compensation laws.
