Recoverable Benefits

Benefits which can be obtained in South Carolina for workers compensation claims include the following:

  • Portion of past and future lost wages

  • Mileage expenses to medical treatment
  • Indemnity benefits for medically assigned impairments and resulting impact on worker

In some cases, complicated issues can arise in a workers compensation claim.  For example, if you are not able to return to work in what you were doing or in similarly paying jobs, you will need to optimize your workers’ compensation benefits in a way to address the future loss of income. Another is that if you begin receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits after your severe work injury, those SSDI benefits may be reduced if you receive workers’ compensation benefits. A lawyer can help you with these and other issues on your workers compensation case in the most beneficial way to you.  For assistance with your workers compensation case, call Young & Thurmond, LLC at (803) 649-0000 or email us below.
