K.C. Mangus Lohr is a South Carolina low country workers’ compensation attorney who can help you.  She has more than 14 years of legal experience, handling all types of injury claims.

Injuries in the workplace are common.  Whether you work in an office building or a steel mill, accidents can happen.  There are South Carolina laws in place that allow you, as injured worker, to receive benefits from your employer while you recover from your injuries. However, when employers and their insurance companies refuse to play by the rules, an experienced attorney like K.C. can fight to get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve in South Carolina.

Almost all employers in South Carolina are required by law to carry insurance for workers' compensation claims.  These insurance policies are intended to cover all necessary and reasonable medical expenses from your injury, to pay some or all of your wages while you are off work, and to pay for any permanent injuries you have.

K.C. understands that being injured on the job can have devastating consequences both personally and professionally and leave you with many questions about your employment, your injuries, and your finances.  Work injuries are covered by the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act. The Act is made up of statutes and regulations that govern how an injured worker’s case moves through the workers’ compensation system.

After reporting your injury to your supervisor and your employer, its workers’ compensation insurance carrier should have you evaluated by a competent medical provider.  If the medical provider tells you that you can return to work with restrictions, your employer should provide light duty for you and pay you money (called “temporary partial disability”) to cover any difference of what you earned before you were injured and what you now earn on light duty. If the employer cannot accommodate your light duty restrictions or the medical provider tells you that you cannot work at all, then your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier should start weekly money payments (called “temporary total disability”) to you to cover your lost income. Once your doctor determines that you are at maximum medical improvement, then your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier should pay you money for any permanent disability you have as a result of the on-the-job injury.

The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act provides many benefits for workers injured on the job. However, sometimes the employer and its workers’ compensation insurance carrier prefer to argue about what they owe you, instead of pay you what is right.  It happens a lot and it can happen to you. When they do not want to play by the rules, you need an attorney to fight for you and your family. You need the Mangus Law Firm.

The insurance companies that provide insurance for employers, are not required to accept your workers’ compensation claim.  Many injured people, who have suffered legitimate injuries, have had their workers’ compensation claims denied. Even if your claim is accepted, there is no guarantee that the insurance company will provide you with the money you need to survive.

If your employer's insurance company denies your claim or refuses to provide you with medical care or a fair settlement.  K.C. is not afraid of fighting your employer and its insurance company to get you the medical treatment and money to which you are entitled.

K.C. is ready to help you get work comp benefits owed to you in South Carolina including payment for your time off work due to your injury, getting the kind of medical treatment you deserve, and payment for your disability at the end of your workers’ compensation claim.  K.C. is knowledgeable and up-to-date on workers’ compensation laws, interpretations of the law by judges throughout South Carolina and ongoing changes in the law that affect the rights of injured workers.  K.C. has the experience you can trust to analyze your case quickly and get you results.

If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, call K.C. at the Mangus Law Firm for a free consultation. K.C. will explain your rights and responsibilities under the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act and fight the employer and its workers’ compensation insurance carrier for the fair treatment and compensation that you deserve.
