South Carolina Workers' Compensation Mileage Reimbursement

odometer.jpgAs part of a South Carolina Workers' Compensation claim, an injured employee is entitled to mileage to and from doctor's appointments AND THE PHARMACY when that round trip mileage is 10 miles round trip or more.  Many injured workers fail to keep up with this mileage as diligently as they should because this reimbursement can add up, it's tax free, and a South Carolina Workers' Compensation lawyer is not entitled to take a share of that reimbursment.

Workers' Comp Mileage Reimbursment Issues

Each year the mileage rate varies depending on many factors.  Most recently the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission increased the mileage rate to $0.565 per mile. Many insurance adjusters do not know the proper mileage rate as it changes frequently and you could be leaving benefits on the table. In addition, an insurance adjuster may not know you are entitled to mileage to and from the pharmacy. Finally, there are occasions where the adjuster doesn't even mention your entitlement to mileage reimbursment at all.  An experienced workers' comp lawyer can assist with this.
