You’re struggling. You’ve been injured at work.
You have bills to pay and maybe a family to support.
Not to mention, you may be angry (to put it mildly) or feel betrayed because you’ve been denied workers’ compensation benefits.
Think about it. You’re a hard working, dedicated employee who’s given it your all. And now you can’t get help when you need it the most.
What’s more, did you know that workers’ comp benefits are available by law to injured workers — no matter whether the accident is your fault or someone else’s.
At Samuels Law Firm, we work for the people who work. That’s you.
We can help you get access to the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. It doesn’t matter whether your claim has been denied or you simply don’t know what to do next, we can help.
Your First Steps
If you have just been injured at work, here are the steps you need to follow:
Though the steps are simple, the process of getting proper compensation often is not.
The truth is, insurance companies and employers protect the bottom line. They will do everything they can to limit your claim or even deny it outright. Despite the fact that you’ve been a loyal, hard working employee.
Don’t Punish Yourself.Seeking workers’ compensation is not a sign that you are not a loyal employee. It doesn’t make you a bad person either. Workers’ compensation benefits are made available by law to protect people like you who’ve been injured at work.
If fact, because you are a hard-working, fair-minded person, you should expect to be treated fairly. Don’t you agree?
If You’re Hurt, Get Help.
Seeking medical attention isn’t a sign of weakness.
After all, your health is vital to you, your employer, and most of all, your family. Seeking medical attention as soon as possible after an injury can be the difference between permanent disability and a full recovery.
Please don’t wait until the pain is unbearable to speak to a doctor. The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to recover physically and financially from your injuries.
They Denied My Workers’ Comp Claim
This is the point where many injured workers realize just how much trouble they are in.
You know you are injured. You know it happened in the course of your work. Yet, you are looking at an automatic denial from your insurance adjuster.
Fortunately, a denial is not the end of the process. There are many reasons why your claim may have been denied. Workers’ compensation laws are complex and what you don’t know can hurt you.
Call us. We can still help you get the benefits you are entitled to. We can help you get the money you deserve.

We help South Carolina families get the compensation they deserve after suffering the physical and emotional toll of a personal injury accident or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Negligence and Personal Injury Law
The people injured in an accident often do not know what caused it. Car accidents, in particular, can be the result of a chain of events that started long before the accident occurred.
For example, if a driver was drinking, or texting or driving too fast, you might not be aware of that when you get hit. Understanding exactly what led to your accident is a vital part of getting full compensation. One or more people may have behaved negligently, contributing to the harm you suffered.
Our experience and attention to detail helps us to find all negligent parties involved and work to hold them accountable for what they did to you.
