Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Mar 06, 2018 in Workers' Compensation
A question we are often asked is "I've been injured at work, do I really need to hire a lawyer"? In South Carolina the short answer is no, you do not have to be represented by counsel in a Worker's Compensation claim. But understand that your employer and the insurance company will have a lawyer to represent their rights. And that lawyer will try to resolve the claim for as little money as possible. Do you know all of your rights? Do you know the value of your injury? Do you understand the different types of settlements available in South Carolina Worker's Compensation claims? Do you understand what Forms 50, 21, and 17 are used for? Do you know the difference between TTD and TPD? These are just a few of the issues you will have to address on your own, or rely upon a lawyer representing the best interest of the other side.
Fortunately, you do not have to go it alone. We have represented injured workers for over 25 years. We understand how to value claims and to make sure our clients get all the compensation to which they are entitled. We are available for a FREE CONSULTATION to discuss your claim. And you are under no obligation to hire us.
