When a Heart Attack is Covered by SC Workers’ Compensation Benefits

SC Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

When a heart attack is considered an on-the-job injury

In South Carolina, any injury you experience while on the job is suitable for Workers’ Compensation benefits  if it requires medical treatment and prevents you from returning to your job (short term, long term, or permanently).

If you have suffered a heart attack, and feel that your injury may be work related, the best thing you can do is give us a call.  Our South Carolina workers’ compensation attorneys  are always standing by to discuss your case. Your situation will be reviewed free of charge. Just give us a call at 803.252.4800. or fill out the case evaluation form at the right.

Common workers’ comp claims include:

  • A slip or fall, eye injury, cut/laceration, burn, ladder accident,
  • A spine or back injury, hernia, heart attack, or other injury caused by exertion
  • An auto accident on duty (your own car or a company vehicle)
  • Occupational disease: exposure to toxins at the workplace.

Heart Attacks and Workers’ Compensation Benefits

By law, every South Carolina employer with four or more full-time employees must have workers compensation insurance.

The protection provided under the South Carolina Workers’ Comp Act is only the beginning of your right to compensation for a workplace injury.

Why do I need a work injury lawyer to get workers’ comp benefits?

The South Carolina Workers’ Comp Commission is tasked with overseeing conflicts that arise between an injured employee and the employer’s insurance company.  Anyone can file a workers’ comp claim for a work-related injury on their own. However, the reality is that a South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Attorney understands your legal rights and will fight to ensure that your rights are protected.

Here’s a quick look at specific obstacles that commonly arise in Workman’s Comp claims:

  • Denied Claims
  • Dispute Over Medical Treatments & Needs
  • Return to Work Disputes
  • Dispute Over Claim Settlement Offered
  • A Third-Party Is Also to Blame
  • Your Appeal Is Ready for District Court

Suffered a heart attack that you believe is work related? The work-injury lawyers at The Strom Law Firm, LLC proudly seek justice on behalf of employees injured or killed on the job who work for private companies, as well as employees working for local county, city, and state government.

Whether your case involves obtaining benefits for a denied workers comp claim, helping you obtain medical treatment, negotiating a fair and equitable settlement for your on-the-job injury, or even pursing a claim against a third party who caused and/or contributed to your workplace injury, the workers’ compensation lawyers at the Strom Law Firm, LLC  represent injured workers at all stages of the workers’ compensation claim process, including initial hearings and appellate proceedings.

The Strom Law Firm, LLC understands the impact that a work-related injury or death has upon you and your loved ones.  The most important thing you need to focus on is a speedy recovery. You need an advocate who will seek justice on your behalf.

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.
