Have not been to ER but still in pain today. Do I have a workers comp case?
A: This is posted as a South Carolina workers' compensation question, however, it indicates the question came from Coral Gables, Florida. If you were hurt in South Carolina, yes, you may have a South Carolina workers' compensation claim. If you were hurt in Florida, you need to ask your question of a Florida lawyer.
A: Yes. However, you need to report this accident and ask them to send you to a doctor. I would contact an attorney and speak to them (there is no charge) about this matter. Raeford is known for being very difficult to deal with and you will need representation to secure the benefits that you will need. All of us on AVVO would be more than happy to speak with you.
