CHARLESTON COURT SYSTEM
Charleston Municipal Court is the court of local jurisdiction for the City of Charleston, South Carolina, and is responsible for adjudicating criminal misdemeanor offenses involving city ordinances and state statutes. This includes traffic offenses and property crimes involving $1,000 or less.
Charleston County belongs to the 9th Judicial Circuit. The Court of Common Pleas is the Circuit Court branch that has jurisdiction over civil cases in Charleston County in which the value at stake exceeds $7,500. Cases involving less than $7,500 are heard in the Small Claims Magistrates’ Court.
The state agency in charge of administering the workers’ compensation laws in South Carolina is the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Commission. The agency is broken into districts, with Charleston forming District 4. Informal conferences and hearings before deputy commissioners are held within this district, while appeals go to the Full Commission and, if necessary, the S.C. Court of Appeals and Supreme Court. More information about the S.C. Workers’ Compensation Commission can be found through their website at www.wcc.state.sc.us.
If you are filing for Social Security disability, your application will be reviewed at the local Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). If you appeal the decision on your claim, this same office will be where your hearing occurs before an administrative law judge.
