You Might Get More Benefits For Injuries To Several Body Parts, But You Should Expect A Fight

A South Carolina workers comp attorney explains how injuries to multiple body parts can result in additional benefits for injured employees. While some of those benefits can be substantial, you should expect the workers comp insurance company to fight against paying them.

Hey folks we're talking about how workers comp may give more benefits for injuries to multiple body parts. You might qualify for more benefits if you hurt multiple body parts like breaking an arm and a leg or you hurt one body part that impairs another like you suffered a spinal neck injury that leaves your arms weak. Because these benefits can be expensive for the insurance company though you need to expect a fight, especially if you've got a body part that impairs another body part. In our neck example you should expect the insurance company and you'd say that you just hurt your neck. What we're talking about here is maximizing your financial recovery from severe injuries that may impact your work and your life forever. If you're going to pursue these claims the right way you need an experienced professional on your side to take on the insurance company.

So the next question becomes what benefits do you qualify for? You might qualify for one of three separate sets of benefits. The first one is you could get additional money for permanent injury. You might also qualify for free medical care related to your injuries. The second is if you can prove permanent wage laws caused by your injuries you might qualify for potentially substantial benefits.  Benefits to replace some of that wage loss and free medical care related to your injuries but you're going to need expert testimony from a vocational evaluator to prove your permanent wage loss. Third, you could qualify for total and permanent disability benefits. That doesn't mean you're permanently helpless, it doesn't mean you're helpless at all. But these benefits are the most extensive benefits available in workers compensation law. They include the maximum possible financial compensation for permanent injury and free medical care for life related to your injuries.

So the worse your hurt the more help you need. Don’t risk being taken advantage of by the insurance company.
