The workers' compensation system is supposed to provide a fair tradeoff to employers and employees. In exchange for protection from employee lawsuits, companies are asked to provide benefits to workers who are injured in workplace accidents or otherwise suffer illness or injury in the course of their employment.
This seems like an equitable agreement on the surface. But unfortunately, workers' compensation laws (in South Carolina and nationwide) have become increasingly biased in favor of companies and employers in recent decades. The result is that legitimate injury claims often get rejected and workers are left without any other legal or financial remedies.
Why You Need An Experienced Lawyer On Your Side
In theory, you can claim workers' compensation benefits without the help of an attorney. But because these laws and practices have become increasingly biased, navigating these claims on your own can be difficult. Many injured workers experience claim denial and may even suffer workplace retaliation for pursuing a claim in the first place. The latter practice is illegal, but it happens because too many workers don't understand their rights.
At The Hyman Law Group, P.A., we will fight to protect your rights and get you the benefits you are entitled to receive. We represent clients in both the claims and appeals processes. But don't make the mistake of waiting to call until after your claim has been denied. The sooner we are involved, the more we may be able to help.
Individual Representation From Attorneys Who Care
Many law firms that focus on workers' compensation claims become workers' compensation "mills" over time. Too often, resolving claims is simply a numbers game.
We believe that our clients deserve better. If you come to us seeking help with workers' compensation, we will give you and your case the same individualized attention that we give all clients. We will take the time to explain your rights and options, and we will help you present all relevant evidence and arguments to support your claim for benefits.
