Representing Injured South Carolina Workers

A workplace accident can have more than physical consequences. On-the-job injuries or illnesses can lead to worry over mounting medical bills and the financial difficulties caused by lost wages. At Howard, Howard, Francis & Reid, L.L.P., in Greenville, South Carolina, our dedicated attorneys will help you through the workers' compensation claims process to ensure that you receive the benefits you need after a serious workplace injury.

What Is Covered By Workers' Compensation Benefits?

Workers' compensation benefits cover medical treatment, loss of wages while you are unable to work and compensation for any permanent disability or disfigurement. You are eligible for benefits after seven days of being unable to work. Compensation is applied retroactively if your disability continues beyond 14 days.

With over 40 years of experience, attorney Skip Francis will ensure that your right to compensation is preserved and that your claim is filed in a timely and efficient manner, in full accordance with state law, and speed the process along if it stalls.

Standing Up For Your Rights Against Employers And Insurers

In South Carolina, all employers with more than four employees must have sufficient insurance to cover the cost of compensation for their injured workers. However, employers and insurers sometimes contest valid claims. Your employer may argue that your injury or illness is unrelated to your job duties, or your insurer may offer a low settlement that does not accurately reflect the severity of your condition.

If your claim meets resistance, our extensive negotiation and litigation experience enables us to hold your employer or their insurer to their responsibilities. The law is on your side, and our legal skill and knowledge can make sure that you are compensated for your injury and maximize the benefits you receive.
