South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Process

In the aftermath of a work-related injury, you will be facing a number of challenges. In addition to the physical recovery and lost wages, most injured workers face significant challenges in the workers’ compensation process. Without experience in this specific area of law, most people have no idea where to begin the process or how to protect their own interests and right to fair compensation for the injuries or illnesses they have suffered. At Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, we can help. We have a wealth of experience representing injured workers in and around Greenville, South Carolina. We understand the significant challenges you are facing, and we will do everything we can to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

If you have been injured or have become ill at work, it is important for you to have some understanding of the process ahead and to know what you will need to do to protect your rights.

Medical attention: If you have been in a serious accident or are ill, the most important first step is to seek medical attention right away.

Reporting your accident: To make a claim, you will need to report the incident to your employer within 90 days.

Employer-directed medical care: At this point, if your case is admitted, you will receive medical care directed by your employer and its insurance carrier. In many cases, the assessments made and medical care recommended by “the company doctors” will be conservative and will fail to treat every aspect of your long-term symptoms and complications.

Claim denials: In far too many cases, legitimate employee injury claims are denied outright. Either they claim there are no injuries or that the injuries did not happen at work.

We have seen many instances in which injured workers received inadequate medical care or the outright denials of legitimate claims. Talk with a lawyer right away. We can help you with any aspect of the process, from the initial claim through all types of workers’ compensation appeals.

Appealing South Carolina Workers' Comp Claims

Spartanburg Workmans’ Compensation Attorney Ryan Montgomery will help you understand the options available to you and walk you through the complex legal process of securing full and fair compensation for you.

At Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, we can represent you through both types of appeals if that’s what it takes to help you obtain the compensation you need after a work-related injury.

Since they both use the term “appeal,” many people confuse the two main types of appeals available in workers’ compensation claims:

Appealing within the system: The workers’ compensation system in South Carolina allows for appeals. This is different from an appeal within the court system. A workers’ compensation appeal of this type involves another agent within the system reviewing the facts and evidence to reconsider a claim denial.

Bringing the case to a higher court: This is a civil within the appellate court system. This is the same legal process as an appeal of any type of civil case, like a personal injury or other tort claim. An appeal of this kind involves an appellate judge reviewing the case from a legal standpoint to determine whether the decision should be overturned.
