SC Workers Compensation Commission

In South Carolina, the Workers Compensation Commission is the administrative branch that handles and adjudicates all workers compensation claims (See The South Carolina Workers Compensation Commission website at Home | Workers’ Compensation Commission (sc.gov)).  There are seven Workers Compensation Commissioners who preside over claims that are brought to a hearing, all of whom are appointed by the Governor and approved by the Senate for a 6-year term.

The Commissioners also form Appellate Panels (composed of three of the Commissioners) to hear appeals from workers compensation hearings.  If a party then wants to appeal the decision of an Appellate Panel, they may appeal to the Court of Appeals and then to the Supreme Court.
