What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a benefits program required by law, where injured employees may receive paid medical care, replacement income, and loss of use benefits when they are hurt in the course of their employment. The system does not require the fault of the employer in causing the injury.

Workers’ compensation is a system for employees who are injured on the job. Employees may receive the medical care and compensation that they need quickly and without having to prove negligence, like in a typical personal injury claim.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?

Workers’ compensation should work with the following process:

  • A workplace injury occurs. The victim seeks medical care.
  • The injured worker notifies their employer.
  • The employer completes a report and notifies their insurance provider.
  • Following an investigation, the employer provides workers compensation benefits.
  • Benefits may include covered medical care to maximum medical improvement, replacement wages for lost work, and loss of body part compensation.

A person who is hurt because of an on-the-job injury has the right to the benefits provided by South Carolina law. The injured worker may choose to have the assistance of a lawyer.
