Workers’ Comp Settlement Timeline

If you are seeking compensation after a workplace injury, you may have questions about the workers’ comp settlement timeline in North Augusta.

Question:

How long does it take to resolve a workers’ compensation claim?

Answer:

I had a lady call me who had been injured at work in North Augusta, and she asked me the question, “How long does it take for a workers’ compensation case to resolve in the state of South Carolina?” In South Carolina, you have two years to file a notice of claim for statute of limitation purposes. There are two other issues, however, that can affect how long a case takes.

The first is, is the case accepted by the employer and insurance company as compensable? If it’s accepted, then the issue of how long the case lasts would be how long it takes for the doctor to release you and say he’s done all he can for you. If the case is denied, the issue is how long it will take to get to court and present your case to a judge to get a ruling from a judge as to whether the case is compensable.
