WORKERS’ COMP

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:

  • Notify your employer
  • Ask your employer which hospital to go to for treatment. South Carolina law gives employers the right to make this decision.
  • Inform the doctor that you are there for a work-related accident. Give the doctor a complete list of the body parts affected and explain how you were injured.
  • Contact our experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

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.

PERSONAL INJURY

You’ve been injured in an accident.
Or maybe you lost a loved one due to the negligence of another. The truth is, people are shocked at the cost of a personal injury. A serious car accident, truck accident, slip and fall or other incident can quickly lead to thousands, tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical costs.Either way, it wasn’t your fault but you’re the one paying the price.However, your pain and suffering is about more than medical bills. A serious injury can make it impossible to work. It can threaten your ability to raise your children. It can rob you of life’s simple pleasures.

At Samuels Law Firm, we work hard to protect accident victims and their families.

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.

What to Expect
To have a valid injury claim, you must be able to show that you suffered actual harm due to the negligent actions of another. The type and severity of injuries you suffered makes a difference. We will work to present a full and compelling picture of what you have lost in order to seek maximum compensation.One thing you should expect is that the insurance companies will not make it easy. Insurance companies, whether it’s your insurer or the other driver’s insurer, are not in the business of helping accident victims. They are not on your side. They do not care if you don’t collect the money you need to cover your short- and long-term medical expenses.We will help you deal with the insurance companies to make sure your rights are protected after an accident.Last but not least, your case is unique. If a lawyer tells you exactly what will happen without knowing anything about your situation, please find a different lawyer.
