South Carolina Workers Compensation Laws

South Carolina workers compensation laws have provided certain legal rights and options to both employees as well as employers in cases of work-related injuries or illnesses. In general, when a worker gets injured or suffers from illnesses because of certain harmful factors that the workplace is exposed to, the employer must provide monetary benefits to the injured worker; this monetary benefit must cover the resulting medical expenses as well as the income loss thus caused. Sometimes, employers refuse to take the responsibility. In such cases, the injured worker has the right to file a lawsuit against the employer and claim for compensation.
