After suffering a workplace injury in South Carolina, you need to make sure that you do two things right away: get yourself medical attention and report your injury to your employer. Certainly, nothing is more important than your health. Emergency medical treatment always comes first. After things have settled down, you need to make sure that you report your injury to your supervisor. Under South Carolina workers’ compensation law, you have an obligation to report your work injury to your employer within 90 days. If you fail to do so, you may lose out on your ability to seek benefits. There are cases where supervisors will try to talk injured workers out of reporting their injuries. This is illegal. If your employer is attempting to intimidate you into not reporting your claim, call a lawyer immediately.
