A: South Carolina workers compensation is a no fault system. Therefore, the fact that your boss caused your injury does not help or hurt your case. Having had two surgeries already, you need to consult with a South Carolina workers compensation injury attorney ASAP. You are going to be out of work for quite sometime and therefore, the benefits you are entitled to will become very important and quickly.

*** this in no way forms an attorney client relationship and should be taken as general advice. You should schedule a consultation with a South Carolina workers compensation attorney about the facts and law specific to your case.
