Lost Wages/Lost Pay

When An Injury Prevents You From Working For Weeks Or Longer

Once a person realizes that an injury is serious enough to prevent work for weeks, months or even permanently, major financial worries quickly kick in. If you were injured on the job, your ability to pay other bills and support your family may depend absolutely on the compensation you receive for lost earnings. At Smith & Griffith, LLP in Anderson, workers' compensation it a big part of what we do every day.

Have You Run Into Problems Obtaining Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

Having your South Carolina workers' compensation claim denied or payments delayed can be economically devastating. Cases involving any such dispute, a potential permanent disability or a workplace fatality call for skilled, focused legal representation. You can turn to John P. Griffith, an Anderson attorney for recovering lost wages and lost pay, to get exactly that.

Diligent Advocacy To Help You Recover The Lost Income You Deserve

Under longstanding South Carolina law, the great majority of work accident victims are entitled to two-thirds of their average weekly wages while off the job. As of January 2022, the maximum allowable lost wage benefit was set at $963.37 per week. Obtaining the full amount you are entitled to, for the full period of time you cannot work, can be critical.

Attorney John P. Griffith has helped hundreds of individuals and families get all the workers’ compensation they need and deserve for lost wages. His case experience extends across the spectrum of work-related injuries, as well as on-the-job fatalities and wrongful termination claims. His approach to workers compensation disputes includes:

  • Thorough upfront evaluation of the injury, accident and source of any dispute, in order to clearly establish the clients' rights and form a viable, effective strategy
  • Aggressively targeting a just outcome through negotiation or a workers compensation hearing or appeal if necessary
