Temporary Benefits In South Carolina Workers’ Compensation
Discuss Your Right to Temporary Income Benefits With an Experienced Attorney
If you miss work due to a job-related injury, you become entitled to two-thirds of your average weekly wage (including overtime) on the eighth day away from work. Workers’ compensation insurance companies do not always calculate income benefits accurately, and employers do not always provide current, complete or accurate compensation data. We can help you file your workers’ compensation claim to get the benefits you deserve.

If your temporary disability benefits on your workers’ compensation claim seem to fall short of the two-thirds pay that you should be receiving, discuss your situation with a lawyer who understands South Carolina workers’ compensation law and procedures. Contact Schiller & Hamilton in Rock Hill, or Beaufort. We offer A Complimentary Strategy Session, and we only recover an attorney’s fee as a limited percentage of your benefits award if we successfully resolve your case.
Our attorneys make a thorough investigation of your income history with your current employer and make sure that all allowable components of your past compensation are reflected in your lost income benefit under the workers’ compensation system. As well as advising injured workers about their right to full temporary disability benefits, we also help people resolve problems with initial claims, early termination of benefits, and medically inaccurate orders to return to work.
