Horry County Work Injury Attorney
If you have been hurt on the job, you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to protect your rights. Employers and their insurance companies will use all means at their disposal to try to deny, delay or diminish your claim. You want a strong and assertive lawyer who will fight to get the benefits you need and deserve.
At the Chandler Law Firm, we have provided compassionate, yet aggressive and hard-nosed counsel, to the hard working men and women of South Carolina since 1999. Mr. Chandler knows the applicable laws concerning workers' compensation and how to make sure you get all of the medical and monetary benefits that you are entitled to, often including lifetime benefits.
This area of the law is very technical with statutes and regulations that can be used against you if you make even the slightest misstep. Mr. Chandler is a long standing member of the Injured Workers' Advocates, a nonprofit association of attorneys who are dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights and legal remedies for South Carolina workers who are victims of occupational injury or disease. Injured Workers' Advocates works to achieve these goals by advocating for the rights of the injured worker through education, litigation, and communicating with others concerning goals and issues important to the protection of workers' rights in the state of South Carolina.
Our Workplace Injury Practice
If you have been hurt on the job in South Carolina, you may be limited to benefits available through the state's workers' compensation system. We will handle all matters related to your claim, helping you prepare and file your application for benefits, gathering appropriate medical information to support your claim, and acting as your advocate in all hearings or proceedings, including appeals of denied workers' compensation claims.
We offer workers' compensation counsel to individuals in a wide range of occupations, from teachers and police officers to construction workers, medical care providers, sales clerks and food service workers, such as waiters and waitresses. We also represent factory or manufacturing employees.
We know from experience that many legitimate workers' compensation claims are initially denied. Your employer has a vested interest in not paying your claim, as it will keep insurance premiums low. The workers' compensation insurance provider wants to minimize payouts as well. We will fight to get the benefits to which you are entitled.
We offer a free initial consultation to all clients. To set up an appointment with an experienced Myrtle Beach workers' compensation attorney, contact our office by e-mail or call us at 843-448-HELP (4357). We will arrange a home or hospital visit, if necessary.
We handle all workplace injury claims on a contingency basis. If there is no recovery for your losses, there will be no legal fee.
