Question:

What is considered a workers' compensation injury?

Answer:

I had a client call me recently who had been badly injured in a fire while working for a small employer that had only four more employees. He asked me if he’s covered under workman’s compensation for his injury. If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions. I’ll share with you what I shared with him.

What Is Considered a Workers' Compensation Injury?All employers in the state of South Carolina that have four or more employees are required to have workman’s compensation insurance. If they have workman’s compensation insurance, you’re definitely covered under the workers’ comp system. The state of South Carolina also has a very good provision whereby the state of South Carolina uninsured employer funds step in and provide insurance coverage for those employers that do not have insurance coverage. The state of South Carolina will pay the claim, pay the lost wages, pay the medical bills, and pay the permanent impairment rating, and then they will make a claim against the uninsured employer for what they pay out.
