How a Myrtle Beach Attorney Can Help 

The workers’ compensation program includes a number of restrictions and limitations you may not be aware of that can severely impact your out-of-pocket expenses.
For instance, with the exception of severe immediate care required such as an emergency room visit or emergency surgery, South Carolina law requires injured workers to seek care from a physician approved by their employer. If you don’t go to a doctor approved by your boss, the cost of medical treatment likely won’t be covered. It’s possible to request a different physician or medical facility if you don’t receive the level of care you want, but it could help to have a Myrtle Beach workers’ compensation attorney work with you on that. Our legal team is on your side to assist in the following if necessary:
Requesting a doctor change with the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission 
Avoiding common mistakes that might interfere with receiving benefits 
Answering questions about your eligibility for workers’ compensation 
Offering advice on documenting your injuries and following doctor orders
Filing an appeal if your claim was denied
Handling communications with insurance companies that may not want to pay for ongoing care
Providing consultation on signing documents and handling settlement offers that may not be in your best interest
Even if your workers’ compensation claim is approved, you may not be receiving or utilizing the full benefits you are owed. We recommend having an attorney to ensure you receive fair benefits.
