Medical Benefits in Workers Compensation


In South Carolina, there are two primary types of benefits you receive in workers compensation:  money benefits and medical benefits.  Money benefits include weekly checks if you are unable to work and a final award based upon what level of permanent damage an injured worker suffered once they have reached the end of treatment.  These benefits have caps in place depending upon how much money the injured worker makes, what body parts were injured, etc.

Medical benefits are handled differently and have particular importance in workers compensation.  Please see this brief video providing an overview of medical benefits in workers compensation:
