When an individual is involved in an accident at work, the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act provides for the injured to receive medical care and financial benefits. Whether an individual is eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits depends on their employment status. David F. Wood, Attorney can assist you in determining any benefits to which you are entitled, and make sure your medical needs are met.

Wrongful death occurs when a person dies due to the negligent, reckless or intentional act of another individual or party. A wrongful death lawsuit can be brought by the representative of the decedent's estate on behalf of the "distributees", usually the decedent's immediate family members. Any damages awarded, however, are generally NOT part of the estate and are not distributed according to the decedent's will. This is an important distinction because it makes them not taxable.
Serious injuries can happen in just an instant. Another car slams into your car, a faulty piece of equipment at work breaks, you sustain a fall after your landlord fails to repair property – and these are only a few examples of the ways that South Carolinians sustain life altering injuries each and every year.
Sadly, many serious injuries are, in fact, preventable. Auto accidents are the leading cause of injuries in South Carolina, and falls were the number one reason for hospital admissions, according to the state Department of Health and Environmental Control’s most recent injury report. More than 50,000 public and private sector employees in South Carolina are injured each year on the job, according to the state Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
