Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim

You probably haven’t given much consideration to your workers’ compensation coverage. Like other forms of insurance, you trust that it will be there when you need it but it isn’t something that you’re thinking about on a regular basis. And just like your health insurance or car insurance, you’ll appreciate it if you ever need it.

In the event that you’re hurt on the job, it’s critically important that you file your workers’ compensation claim promptly. However, there are many details that the average person may not understand. The process can become quite complicated. If you’re in the Columbia, SC area, make sure you first notify your employer and receive any necessary medical attention. Then call the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Jordan Law Firm.

In South Carolina, you are required to report any on-the-job injuries within 90 days in order to receive benefits. You then have up to two years to file the actual claim. Missing these deadlines can prevent you from getting the compensation that you’re entitled to.

As with other forms of insurance, proper documentation is key to filing a successful claim. These details may seem tedious, but are all required for getting you the compensation you deserve. We’ll help you organize the required information and will make sure all paperwork is properly completed and submitted on time.

Our attorneys will stay beside you through every step of the process after your claim is filed. We’ll represent you at your hearing with the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission. If an appeal is necessary, we’ll help you make sure your side of the story is heard by the panel of commissioners or the State Appellate Courts, if necessary.

Our primary loyalty is to you, our client. Your best interests are always our top priority. We provide a level of personalized attention you simply won’t find at other law firms. Call today for an appointment in either our Columbia or Rock Hill, SC offices.
