It’s important to know that the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation program does not cover “stress, mental injuries, and mental illness” due to work. However, illness such as asbestosis and repetitive trauma such as carpal tunnel syndrome are also covered under Workers’ Compensation as long as they can be shown to be a result of working conditions. Finally, death on the job is also covered under Workers’ Compensation.
For many years, we at The Carolina Law Group have helped hundreds of individuals obtain the medical care and compensation needed to move past severe, sometimes debilitating, workplace injuries and illnesses like the ones listed above. We can do the same for you.
