You Get the Medical Treatment and
Money You Deserve!
If you live in the North Charleston area and you or a loved one has been hurt on the job, you need an experienced Workers’ Compensation Lawyer. You want and deserve just compensation for your expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and any other legal amount due you. The last thing you need during a time like this is to work directly with the insurance company claims adjuster who will always try to pay you nothing or the least possible amount.
Workers’ compensation cases are complex, they are full of traps for good, honest people who just want the insurance company to “be fair.” Experienced workers’ comp lawyers know, from experience, that insurance companies are not interested in being fair–they are ONLY interested in the bottom line. You need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to fight for the benefits you are entitled to under South Carolina’s workers’ Compensation system. Whether you have a back injury, a shoulder injury, or a leg or arm injury if the injuries are the result of a job accident, you should call us for a free consultation to maximize your claim and get justice for your loss. Lindsay Blanks is a skilled Workers’ Compensation Lawyer with more than 30 years of experience with workers’ comp claims. He can help you get the compensation you deserve after a serious accident while treating you with compassion, courtesy and respect.
South Carolina Workers’ Compensation are governed laws by the South Carolina Code of Laws Title 42. These claims are administered by the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Unlike some of the “warehouse” law firms in Charleston (their signs are on buses and billboards), your case will be handled by an experienced lawyer, not by the temporary summer associate or secretary. We have won many different types of personal injury cases, including car wrecks, truck accidents, and workers’ compensation cases.
North Charleston Workers’ Compensation lawyer can make sure you get the compensation and benefits you’re entitled to. A job injury can cause great stress and suffering. Often unable to work, victims of work place injuries typically face an onslaught of medical expenses piled on top of the usual bills, which you can no longer pay because you can’t work. And, unfortunately, the Workers’ Compensation insurance company isn’t on your side. If you’ve been injured at work or while performing job duties, you need Benefits You’re Entitled to for a Work Place Injury.
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.
North Charleston Workers’ Compensation lawyer Lindsay Blanks has experience getting insurance companies to pay the benefits injured employees need and are entitled to. 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.
