SOUTH CAROLINA WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAW
The Laws of Workers’ Compensation are intended to protect those injured on the job. With certain exceptions, employers in South Carolina are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance sufficient to provide compensation and causally-related medical treatment to injured workers. However, many employees find it difficult to obtain the benefits to which they are entitled under the Workers’ Compensation Act.

FILING A WORKERS’ COMPENSATION CLAIM
An employee who is injured at the workplace should immediately report the accident to his or her employer. The employer should be notified of on-the job injuries no later than ninety (90) days from the date of accident or the employee may risk losing the workers’ compensation benefits to which he or she is entitled. Claims for compensation under the Workers’ Compensation Act must be filed within two years from the date of accident. Failure to report an injury and/or to file a claim in accordance with the workers’ compensation statutes may result in a denial of benefits.
