DNR employee tears ACL while working

While preparing for a hurricane that was coming to the South Carolina coast, a SC DNR technician slipped off of a ladder and severely injured his right knee. He filed a workers' compensation claim and after seeing his doctors, it was determined that he had a torn ACL, a torn meniscus, and fracture to the knee. Surgery was determined to be necessary.

His doctors also assigned a 6% impairment to his right lower extremity and a 4% impairment to the whole body.

The worker contacted Myrtle Beach Workers' Compensation attorneys at The Derrick Law Firm and about five months post-injury, this workers' compensation case was settled.
