Who Is Covered by Workers Compensation in South Carolina?

The vast majority of employees in our home state are covered by workers’ compensation laws from the moment they commence their employment. This coverage includes full-time and part-time workers across most industries and occupations. 

However, there are exceptions. Independent contractors are a prime example. Railroad workers and agricultural employees may be exempt. Those who work for the federal government may also be uncovered. Businesses with fewer than four employees are not obligated to carry workers comp coverage.

Smith & Griffith, LLP will evaluate your case to determine eligibility and guide you through the claim process. It’s further worth emphasizing that your employer is prohibited by law from taking retaliatory action against an employee filing a claim. If you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated, let us know so we can investigate further. 

What Is Covered by Workers Compensation in South Carolina?

Workers’ compensation in South Carolina is designed to cover a variety of needs to support injured workers through their recovery and return to work.

  • Medical expenses: Workers’ compensation covers all necessary medical treatment related to the workplace injury or illness. This includes doctor visits, hospital stays, medications, and any required rehabilitation or therapy. 
  • Lost wages: The specific amount and duration of these benefits can vary based on the severity of the injury and the worker’s average weekly wage.
  • Disability benefits: For injuries that result in permanent disability, benefits are calculated based on the nature of the disability and its impact on the worker’s capacity to earn a living in the future.
