Benefits You’re Entitled to for a Work Place Injury:
If you’ve been injured at work or while performing job duties, you need a Charleston Worker’s Compensation lawyer to ensure you get the compensation and benefits you’re entitled to. A job injury can cause great stress and suffering.

And, unfortunately, the Workers Compensation insurance company isn’t on your side.
North Charleston Workers Compensation lawyer helps workers compensation system work for you
While the main objective of the Worker’s Compensation Act is to create and protect the rights of employees who get injured at work, the insurance companies who pay the benefits don’t work for the employees. They work for the employer, and their job is to keep insurance premiums low and company profits high. The only way insurance companies can do that is to keep benefit payouts to a minimum. One tactic for doing that is negotiating settlements with injured workers early on—before the worker fully understands how much medical care is required and how much his pain and suffering are really worth. Another tactic is to deny benefits altogether, claiming that the injury or treatment is not related to work.
You need to talk to an experienced lawyer before you speak with the insurance company
Your lawyer and the experts he hires to help your case are the only people on your side in a work injury case. Even the doctors and medical experts the insurance company sends you to will make judgments in favor of your employer, because they’re paid by your employer’s insurance company. Charleston Worker’s Compensation lawyer Lindsay Blanks has experience getting even large, corporate insurance companies to fork over the benefits injured employees need and are entitled to.
