Representing Injured Workers In South Carolina
Did you know that workers cannot sue their employers if they are injured on the job? Instead, they have the right to workers’ compensation benefits, including payment for medical care, hospitalization, surgery, prosthetic devices, prescriptions, medical supplies and a portion of their weekly wages.
Local Representation You Can Trust
At Kinard & Jones, LLC, we understand how devastating a work-related injury or occupational illness can be. Our workers’ compensation attorney helps people who are too injured to work receive the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled, by law, to receive.
Do you need help filing for workers’ compensation benefits? Were your benefits delayed, denied or unreasonably terminated? Are you having trouble getting the medical care you need? We can help with these and many other problems.
We represent clients who were sent back to work before they were physically able to return to their job.
Maximizing The Benefit To You
In addition to helping you receive workers’ compensation benefits, we will analyze the circumstances of your case to determine if someone other than your employer contributed to your injury. If so, we will file a third-party negligence claim — a type of personal injury claim.
For example, if you were driving a car as part of your job and were injured in an auto accident, we could file a third-party claim against the driver of the other vehicle. Third-party injury claims allow injured workers to recover compensation for their pain and suffering, which is not covered by workers’ compensation.
