You need someone looking out for your rights under workers compensation law. Too often, injured workers try to handle the entire process on their own. This works out fine if your employer and their insurer act in good faith. Your claim can be denied in full, or in part, leaving you on your own to figure out what steps you should take next. This is where Powers Law can help. Michelle Powers is a lawyer and a registered nurse.
Powers Law can provide the legal help you need because we are familiar with how insurance companies work.
In 2017, the South Carolina Department of Safety reported a car crash resulting in injury occurred every 13 minutes. This resulted in more than 60,000 injuries suffered by victims of car accidents.
Unfortunately, victims of car accidents often face an uphill battle collecting compensation from insurance companies. Remember, no insurer likes to pay claims — in fact, they make more money from collection of premiums when payouts are kept to a minimum. Insurance company adjusters are trained to point part of the blame for an accident to the victim. This helps them pay out less under the shared fault rules in South Carolina.
