The Workers Compensation Act Protects Your Rights
The Workers' Compensation Act in South Carolina states if an employee suffers injury by accident arising out of and in the course of employment, that individual is entitled to recover medical expenses, temporary total compensation, and specifically permanent and total disability benefits.
Under the current law, your employer has the right to select the doctor who will treat you. If you see your doctor without permission of the employer, he or she may not be held liable for the medical expense, unless it constitutes an emergency condition. However, you have the right to choose a physician to evaluate you for the specific disability you may have. If you were injured in a place of business but you weren’t working, get in touch with our slip and fall lawyer.
