Fighting For Charleston’s Injured Workers Since 2006
South Carolina law says that when someone suffers an injury or illness in the course of their work duties, they are entitled to workers’ compensation until they recover. However, getting approved for workers’ comp is not always this simple. Charleston employers and their workers’ compensation insurers often deny valid claims or else make lowball settlement offers that would fail to cover the employee’s lost wages, medical bills and other costs.
Attorney William H. Nixon Jr. believes that injured workers should get the compensation to which they are entitled under the law. With decades of experience representing both insurance companies and injured parties, he brings a unique depth of experience in workers’ comp law to each case. He has taken over 100 workers’ compensation cases to trial and is never afraid of a court fight to protect his client’s best interests. Mr. Nixon knows South Carolina workers’ comp law thoroughly and will review every detail of what happened to you to prepare a strong case for maximum compensation benefits.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits In South Carolina
There are three types of workers’ compensation benefits in South Carolina:
- Medical benefits
- Lost wages
- Permanent disability
Depending on the nature and severity of your injuries and your prospects for recovery, you could be entitled to temporary partial benefits, temporary total benefits or permanent benefits. Applying for workers’ comp can be complicated, but things get especially complex when you must appeal an unfair rejection or inadequate settlement offer. Mr. Nixon will work closely with you and keep the lines of communication open at all times. He will explain your case and answer all your questions, and always promptly answer your phone calls and emails.
