Temporary Disability Benefits Lawyer in South Carolina
If you miss more than seven days of work due to a work-related injury, on the eighth day, you will begin receiving temporary disability, which is two-thirds of your salary. Once you reach maximum medical improvement, you may be eligible for ongoing disability benefits.
When determining permanent disability benefits, the state will consider the severity of your injuries and the impact they will have on your ability to return to work. After a medical evaluation, you will be assigned a disability rating, which will determine the amount of permanent disability benefits you will receive.
While state law requires employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, unfortunately, some employers resist paying legitimate claims. Allen and Allen will help you understand your rights and options under the workers’ compensation system. They will help ensure that your temporary disability benefits were calculated properly, and they will aggressively pursue the maximum amount of permanent disability benefits that are available to you.
