Helping Injured Workers Seek The Compensation They Deserve

Workplace injuries are far more common than many people realize. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 14 workers die from these injuries every day. The most common reasons for these deadly accidents are falls (38.7 percent), getting struck by an object (9.4 percent), electrocutions (8.3 percent) and getting caught between two objects (7.3 percent).

And those are just fatal accidents. Far more incidents leave workers with serious yet survivable injuries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that there are about 2.9 million nonfatal injuries annually, per 2016 statistics. Workers in every industry face serious risks on a daily basis.

Seeking The Medical And Wage Loss Benefits You Need

If you are injured in a workplace accident, you have the right to seek medical, lost wage and other benefits from South Carolina workers' compensation. At Doughty Law Firm, LLC, in North Charleston, we are here to help. Attorney Thad Doughty has more than 23 years of experience helping injured people obtain the compensation they need and deserve.

Workers' compensation is not always as straightforward as it should be. Your employer may deny your workers' comp claim or stop benefits before you have recovered. If you have suffered permanent impairment, your employer may not offer the appropriate compensation.

If you have suffered a serious injury, it is important to talk to a lawyer. Part of the work we do is to make sure you get proper medical treatment; if you don't, it could affect your recovery and your ability to work in the future. We work hard on your behalf to make sure you get the treatment you need, along with compensation to cover your costs.

If someone other than your employer caused your injury, we can also seek appropriate compensation from the civil justice system.
