South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Attorney

No one looks to get injured at work. However, every year, 2.8 million American workers get hurt simply doing their jobs. A serious work accident can change your life. You hurt, you can’t work, you can’t get treatment, and the insurance company won’t return your phone calls. You don’t know if there will be a job waiting for you when you get better – or if you will even be able to work at all.

We get it. You are a hardworking, dedicated employee who gives your all.  Workers’ compensation is there to protect people like you with financial compensation and medical treatment. All too often, the insurance companies put their interests ahead of yours. Samuels Law Firm can you help ensure you get fair treatment, proper medical care and full compensation for your injury.

WE WORK FOR THE PEOPLE WHO WORK

Worried about hiring a lawyer? Some people think lawyers are too expensive. Or they don’t want to “sue” the company or risk getting fired because they got a lawyer. Or often times they feel bad because the insurance company has been nice to them. Or they even get talked out of hiring a lawyer by the insurance adjuster or nurse case manager.

Don’t worry. Your first visit with us is confidential and free. Also, we only get paid on a percentage if we help you. Your lawyer is loyal only to you. We want you to get good treatment so you can get better and get back work. And if you can’t, then we want you to receive full and fair compensation for your injury.

We know the insurance company is not your friend. They have one interest – saving their money. And they do that by paying as little as possible for your medical treatment and compensation – or even by denying your claim altogether. They have adjusters who know the rules and play the game for their own benefit. They have teams of lawyers advising them and fighting you at every step. If they have lawyers, why shouldn’t you?

An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you get your benefits without unnecessary delay or hassle. Getting well should be your priority, not legal issues and complicated forms. We will deal with the insurance company so you don’t have to. We are true lawyers dealing with true injuries. If you or someone you care about has been injured at work, give us a call at (803) 779-4000 or stop by our office. Your consultation is free. After that, you won’t owe us anything unless we are successful with your case.

Asbestos, found in a myriad of old building materials, is a contributing factor in many lung diseases.

Construction jobs account for the majority of work-related injuries in the U.S and 20 percent of fatalities. These include falls, electrocution, being stuck by falling objects or being stuck between two objects and crushed.

When individuals are negligent in their handling of flammable substances, injury can occur. These injuries can include serious burns and lung damage due to smoke inhalation.

The long-term effects of traumatic brain injury are only now being better understood. Brain injuries can leave long-lasting effects that range from cognitive changes to persistent headaches and personality changes.

Gas explosions and dangerous power tools can all lead to permanent scarring, disfigurement, and loss of bodily function.

Shoulder injuries can easily develop from everyday wear and tear and overuse at work while doing activities like lifting. Operating heavy equipment and machinery can lead to a variety of arm injuries and leg injuries.

A problem for many office workers who spend hours every day on a keyboard, carpal tunnel syndrome can cause pain, tingling and numbness in hands and arms.

Loud work areas and bright light, such as welding, can lead to permanent vision and hearing loss.

Common causes of back and spine injuries include slip and fall accidents and repetitive trauma injuries. The spine is made up of 33 very delicate bones and includes tissue extending from the skull all the way to your pelvis. Back and spine injuries can cause severe pain and discomfort.

State employees, such as law enforcement officials face danger every day, from having to deal with criminals to potential injuries from pursuing a suspect at a high rate of speed.

The healthcare industry presents its own set of potentially harmful situations. Workers have to lift patients and other heavy objects, are exposed to radiation and chemicals, and are at risk for being exposed to viruses, bacteria and tainted blood.

Exposure to hazardous chemicals can cause breathing issues, burns and even death. Most common chemical exposure issues are ammonia, chlorine, hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid.

Stressful jobs and out-of-town travel can take its toll on a worker’s health and lead to a heart attack. Strokes, too, can be a result of too much job-related stress.

Many jobs are associated with stress and result in mental issues. Some of the most stressful jobs are firefighters, airline pilots, event coordinators and public relations executives.

Warehouse injuries include things like forklift accidents and falls on slick concrete floors.

Police and Correctional Officers put their lives on the line everyday.  Law enforcement brings special challenges, as officers can be injured in physical altercations or arrests of suspects and inmates, in high-speed traffic accidents, and even in training.

Any job involving driving or loading is going to result in accidents. Truck accidents can be catastrophic because of the speeds and weights involved.  Many truck and delivery drivers are injured lifting, twisting or falling – particularly when using hand trucks and pallet jacks.

Manufacturing jobs can lead to a number of work-related injuries, ranging from hearing loss from working near loud machinery to cuts or other injuries from getting caught in piece of machinery.

First Responders (firefighters, EMT’s and paramedics) risk their lives and health to save other people.  Their devotion to service means they deserve special respect and need to be taken care of when accidents and injuries happen.  First Responders are at high risk for lifting injuries and falls, as well as smoke inhalation, chemical exposure and other traumatic events.

Work injuries can happen in the safest environments.  Don’t be discouraged from calling us because your occupation is not listed.  We have represented all kinds of workers in all kinds of injuries.
