What You Should Know When You’re Hurt at Work in Greenville

Here is what our law firm for injured workers wants you to know if you’re hurt at work:

Your right to benefits

People hurt on the job may get workers’ compensation benefits. The workers’ compensation system doesn’t require you to prove that the employer is at fault. You just have to show that you got hurt in the scope of your employment.

Your right to third-party compensation

A workers’ compensation case is your exclusive remedy against your employer. However, you still maintain your legal rights against other parties who may be responsible for the accident. If a third party is legally responsible for your injuries, you may bring a claim for compensation.

Your right to representation

You have the right to legal representation following a workplace injury. A lawyer can help you with what compensation and benefits you may receive, how to get your benefits and how to maximize your relief. If you’re injured on the job in Greenville, SC or the surrounding areas, Jordan Law Center can assist you in evaluating your case and pursuing your compensation.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits in South Carolina

South Carolina has specific workers’ compensation laws that are meant to help workers who are hurt on the job. The workers’ compensation system is different than traditional injury lawsuits in a couple of ways. In workers’ compensation:

  • You don’t have to prove your employer caused your injury through negligence.
  • The benefits you receive are different than what people can claim in injury lawsuits.
  • The process to get benefits is different. You notify your employer of your workplace injury and request benefits.
  • An injured worker can request a hearing regarding their benefits. Claims are heard before commissioners. You have the right to appeal.


Benefits you may receive through the workers’ compensation system include:

Medical care

Medical care should be provided at no cost to you. Your employer may choose the care provider, but there are things you can do if you disagree with their opinion or your treatment plan. It’s important to dutifully attend your medical appointments to continue your benefits.

Wage replacement benefits (Temporary Total Disability)

If you can’t work, wage replacement benefits provide replacement income. You may receive 2/3 of your income with weekly minimum and maximum amounts. Compensation may continue for up to 500 weeks depending on the person’s ability to work.

Partial wage benefits (Temporary Partial Disability)

To the extent that someone can work part-time, temporary wage benefits pay a portion of lost earnings. Benefits may continue until the worker returns to full employment or they complete medical care.

Permanent disability

Permanent disability benefits compensate a victim to the extent that their injuries cannot completely heal. Compensation amounts are determined by schedules based on the body part affected and the extent of the loss.

Permanent benefits

When a victim suffers quadriplegia, paraplegia or physical brain damage, benefits may continue indefinitely. The 500-week limit does not apply when a victim suffers these severe injuries.

Isn’t workers’ compensation enough? Why would I bring a third-party case?

With the workers’ compensation system created to simplify the process for on-the-job injuries, you may wonder why it’s important to explore bringing a third-party case. That’s because there are some things the workers’ compensation system can’t do.

The workers’ compensation system can’t hold a third party accountable for negligence. It can’t provide compensation for pain and suffering, mental anguish and the personal toll of being injured in an accident. It doesn’t give you access to a jury in a court of law to hear your case.

Whether a third-party case is right for you depends on the circumstances. What’s always right is talking to a Greenville workers’ compensation lawyer when you’re hurt on the job. At Jordan Law Center, we offer free consultations, and we will assist you in guiding you as you navigate the aftermath of a workplace injury.

Premises liability and workers’ compensation

An example of when a third-party claim may be appropriate is when someone slips and falls. They may be traveling for work and at a location that their employer does not own. The fall may have occurred because a spill or leak was not addressed in a reasonable amount of time.

Maybe the fall occurs at the employee’s usual place of work, but another party is responsible for building maintenance rather than the employer.

These are circumstances where a third-party lawsuit may be appropriate. Premises liability is the legal fault that someone may have for allowing a dangerous condition to persist that causes harm. Our workers’ compensation lawyers can advise if a premises liability claim is viable in your case.
