When you have an accident on the job and are unable to work, you are entitled to compensation at the rate of 66 2/3 percent of your average weekly wage.
This amount is based on the four quarters prior to your injury, but no more than the maximum average weekly wage determined each year by the South Carolina Employment Security Commission.
If you were working two or more jobs at the time of accident, those wages may be included as part of the average weekly wage and compensation rate.
If workers' compensation is not paying you while you are unable to work, you may need help from a personal injury lawyer.
