Workers' compensation for South Carolina workplace injuries

Construction work is booming. The uptick of the economy has led to the need for skilled trade workers to pave more roads, erect tall buildings for both business and pleasure, and provide food and fuel stops in between. With dozers running and hammers hammering, the risks for workplace injuries and deaths are also on the uptick. Should a South Carolina resident be injured in an on-the-job accident, the workers' compensation program is in place to help workers and their families through the financial hard time.

With construction being the type of employment that it is -- physically demanding, mentally draining and highly dangerous -- workers can often find themselves wondering what will happen to their family if something should happen to them? How will a surviving family afford to put food on the table and send the kids off to college? The workers' compensation program can help with that too.

When a 43-year-old man from another state left for work, his family never knew what devastation that day would hold for them. He was killed on the job when the shackle from a crane came loose. It plunged from the crane and struck the man in the head. The worker was drilling piles on a 13-story hotel that was being built.

Even when a case is very clear, there may still be obstacles for victims and surviving family members with regard to filing for, appealing and receiving workers' compensation. Should the unfortunate instance occur, a skilled attorney in South Carolina can help victims work through the steps to receive the benefits provided by the program. In the case of a workers death, the family may be entitled to benefits for surviving spouses and minor children.
