KellyGram – The Workers’ Compensation System 2022

 

 

One of my areas of practice at the Mike Kelly Law Group is Workers’ Compensation. I have been representing injured workers in South Carolina Workers’ Compensation cases for over 40 years. During that time, I have observed the evolution of Workers’ Compensation and its impact on the injured worker in this state. South Carolina’s system seeks to fairly compensate injured workers for their medical expenses, lost wages, and permanent loss of use of certain body parts. It was intended to be benevolent, favoring the injured worker, but in the current environment, I feel that is no longer the case. With the assistance of my excellent paralegal, Kimberly (who just celebrated her 16th year with the Mike Kelly Law Group!), I spend a good portion of the day fighting with insurers to get adequate and proper treatment for our injured worker clients. Needless to say, this is very frustrating for the two of us, but a thousand times more so for our injured clients, who have to wait months to get doctor visits scheduled. Clearly, part of this is not within the control of the insurer, but they bear a share of the blame for these delays.

If you or anyone you know is having trouble with a Workers’ Compensation claim do not hesitate to contact us. We stand ready to Help!

Have a good weekend!
