In South Carolina, injured workers typically receive ⅔ of their pre-tax weekly salary in workers’ comp benefits. This usually works out to workers receiving 66 and ⅔ % of their average weekly wage. So if you typically make $600 a week, you may receive up to $400 in weekly compensation.
You’ve probably heard these payments referred to as “workers’ comp checks,” but the legal term is “temporary total disability.” The purpose of these payments is to help you pay your bills until you can return to work. Keep reading for more from our Greenville workers’ compensation lawyers.
