Types of Work-Related Injuries

Common injuries sustained from work accidents include problems with the back, neck, shoulders, arms, hips, legs, knees, and brain. They also include conditions such as depression and anxiety.

If you have experienced any work-related injuries, the attorneys at Smith Jordan can help you understand how Workers’ Compensation laws are designed to protect you in these cases.

Understanding Workers’ Comp Benefits

Smith Jordan can help you claim the benefits from your injury or injuries to help relieve the financial burden of medical expenses and other related costs. These Workers’ Compensation benefits typically include medical care, restoration of lost wages or wage replacement, and money for any permanent problems resulting from a work accident.

But what do you do when:

Your claim has been denied; Your check is the wrong amount; Your insurance company won’t cover the care your doctor recommends; Your prescription drugs are not paid for; or Your out-of-pocket medical expenses are not reimbursed?

What Mistakes Could Compromise My Workers’ Comp Claim?

There are thousands of workers’ compensation claims filed every year in South Carolina, but not all of them get approved. This is where it is essential to be aware of the common mistakes that could compromise your workers’ compensation claim in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Easley area. These include:

Missing doctor’s appointments

Failing to cooperate with medical advice Exaggerating injuries Failing to disclose pre-existing conditions Posting information about your injury on social media Posting information about your life on social media Failing to seek the advice of a Greenville, SC, workers’ compensation attorney Hiring an attorney without first seeking an in-person consultation

Even when you no longer need to see your doctor as frequently, you need to schedule and keep regular appointments to stay in touch. This will ensure that your claim is not compromised by failing to seek regular medical care.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve been injured at work. What do I do?

If you’ve been injured at work and you’ve never filed a workers’ compensation claim before, there are a couple of things you’ll need to do. Within 90 days of the accident, you have to report to your supervisor, or someone in a managerial position, that you were hurt and how you were hurt. You must do this to protect yourself. The other thing you have to remember is that there’s a time period that these claims have to be filed with a commission. This is a point you might want to discuss with a lawyer so you can understand other things you need to do in your case in order to protect yourself.

What do I do if insurance won’t pay for my medical care?

The Workers Compensation law provides that the insurance company has to pay for the medical care that the authorized treating physician recommends. If your doctor is trying to provide care to you, whether it be shots, injections, x-rays, or MRIs, and the insurance company will not pay, there may be a point in your case where you need to get a lawyer involved. This problem occurs most often when a doctor realizes your case is more serious than first thought and the insurance company doesn’t want to pay for the expensive care.

How can I pay for a lawyer in my disability case?

In a workers compensation case, the person is usually most concerned about how they’re going to pay for the lawyer. The beauty is that the attorneys who handle these cases, like ourselves, handle them on a contingency basis. This means that the attorney does not earn a fee in the case unless the client receives money from the insurance company. So, you don’t have to worry about paying a lawyer an up-front fee or an hourly fee. The lawyer is only going to be receiving a fee if the worker receives money from the insurance company.
