THE MCMILLIAN LAW FIRM
PROVIDING AGGRESSIVE AND COMPASSIONATE LEGAL SERVICES TO INJURED WORKERS IN CHARLESTON, SC AND SUMMERVILLE, SC
Unfortunately, workplace injuries are all too common in South Carolina. Workplace injuries can occur across the entire spectrum of professions and occupations. From the longshoreman and construction worker all the way to the administrative desk clerk. Every person in every job can be in need for compensation due to work related injuries.
When I conduct a workers' compensation consultation, I am without exception faced with honest and hard working people who work jobs upon which their families are financially dependent. I am often faced with good people who are placed into a moral dilemma . . . they need workers' compensation benefits and treatment for injuries but also need to keep their job. Inevitably I am asked this question . . . Can I lose my job if I file a Workers' Compensation claim against my employer in South Carolina?
