I’ve heard that you have to pay a lot of money to get a good lawyer to handle a workers’ comp case. Is this true?
You don’t pay anything at all up front. In fact, the lawyer isn’t paid until you “win” your case. The lawyer’s payment is taken out of your check, so you’re not having to dig into your savings or borrow money to pay for a lawyer. Attorney Byron David knows the workers’ compensation process. He knows how to help get everything you deserve, everything you’re entitled to.
Here at The David Law Firm, we have years of experience in successfully representing people who have been hurt at work. We will do whatever we can to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Almost any type of physical injury or mental illness caused by your work is covered. This includes broken bones and all types of sprains and muscle strains. Many times employees do not realize that workers’ compensation also covers other types of work-related injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome, loss of hearing or vision, lung injuries, heart attacks, strokes, hernias, disfiguring scars, injuries caused by repeated strain and occupational diseases.
Your employer’s insurance company is responsible for all authorized and related medical charges connected with your on-the-job injury. This includes hospitals, physicians, ambulance charges, x-rays, crutches, physical therapy and prescription charges. There is no deductible and you do not pay any of the medical costs. In addition, you are entitled to reimbursement for mileage expenses associated with your medical care.
The workers’ compensation system in South Carolina is a no-fault system. That means if you are hurt on the job, you are entitled to benefits regardless of fault. All employers in South Carolina who employ four or more people are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover their employees.
If you were hurt on the job, call The David Law Firm today for a free consultation and case evaluation (843-488-1415). Again, if we handle your case, you pay absolutely nothing unless we win.
