At McDougall LawFirm, LLC, we have been helping injured South Carolina workers obtain full and fair compensation for their injuries since 1996. Our Beaufort, Bluffton and Hilton Head workers' compensation attorneys understand the difficulty and anxiety involved in recovering financially, physically and emotionally after an injury.
We provide personal commitment and professional representation for our clients. We help them obtain the compensation they need for their injuries, and we help them work rebuild their lives after suffering the tragedy of a work-related accident.
If you have suffered a work-related injury or have lost someone you love in a work-related wrongful death, we can help you.
The company doctors: When you make your workers' compensation claim, you will need to go in for an evaluation. In most cases, the doctor is chosen by the employer and may give an evaluation that is biased in favor of the company. In short, the company doctors will often claim that workers' compensation applicants do not have the injuries they are claiming.
Insurance companies: The company providing workers compensation insurance for your employer will also not be interested in giving you thorough coverage. Insurance companies are interested in paying the least amount possible.
Complexities in the process: Even in the best case scenario, the workers' compensation process is complicated. Working with an experienced attorney can help you through the process to make the most out of your potential benefits.
Third-party liability claims: In too many cases, workers' compensation does not provide complete coverage for injured workers' lost wages and medical bills. A third-party claim can be a great way to make sure that you receive compensation for the full extent of your ability.
For some people who have recently suffered work-related injuries, the first step is the most difficult. However, it is important that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your injuries so that you know your rights and options, and you can think about the best way to proceed so that you do not lose potential benefits.
