The dedicated team at Williams & Kamb vigorously pursues every case and will handle your claim with comprehensive, personalized care.

If you’ve experienced an injury at work, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the wealth of information that exists about workers’ compensation. When you’re at your most vulnerable, you need a law firm you can trust—one that will take the pressure off you and handle every facet of your workers’ comp claim.

Many attorneys at large law firms will take on workers’ comp cases, but at the end of the day workers’ comp is just one small part of what they do. At Williams & Kamb, we focus solely on workers’ comp cases.

Have You Experienced an Injury at Work?

Our lawyers can guide you through the claim process so that you can focus on healing.

01

Speak to a Workers' Comp Lawyer

If you’ve been injured at work, call us as soon as possible and ask to speak to one of our lawyers. During this free consultation, we will ask you a few questions to determine how your injury occurred, whether you’re eligible for South Carolina workers’ compensation, and where you are in the claim process.

Many of our clients call us immediately after an injury—which is recommended, but not required. Maybe you’ve been denied treatment, can’t get a medical referral, or your compensation for missed time from work has been delayed. No matter where you are in the workers’ comp claim process, our team will go above and beyond to help you get what you deserve.

02

In Person Appointment

After we’ve spoken to you about your injury, we’ll schedule an initial appointment to dive deeper into the issue you’re experiencing and collect the information needed to start the workers’ comp process. We will work with you to identify the best course of action to address your particular issues, including medical counseling on how to get the most out of your medical appointments.

03

Building and Proving your Workers’ Comp Claim

Every claim is different and requires different types of proof, but the key to each claim is usually medical proof that the medical condition you are dealing with was either caused or aggravated by an incident or circumstance of your work. Our attorneys will work with our well-trained and experienced paralegals to collect the records needed and obtain the medical opinions necessary so that you can receive the money and medical benefits you are entitled to as quickly as is possible.

04

Negotiate Settlement and/or go to Hearing

Again, every situation is unique. Often, we’re able to negotiate a settlement with your employer and/or your employer’s insurance company to get you the benefits that you’re eligible for. Other times, the issues cannot be worked out and workers’ comp claims must go to a hearing before the Workers’ Compensation Commission. Either way, you can count on Williams & Kamb to handle your case with knowledge, poise and grit.

Of course, there are many issues that could arise—too many to detail here. But rest assured, our team will always go the extra mile to make sure we have the evidence needed and that your interests are always well represented.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you are injured on the job, you should always report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. You may need to complete an incident report, accident report, or other paperwork to document your injury. If at all possible, keep a copy of any documents you complete or sign. If you are unsure or worried about any aspect of your claim, we are available to compassionately, confidentially, and knowledgeably discuss your claim and circumstances.

People can be mean, forgetful, or make bad decisions. This is especially true at work. Workers’ compensation in South Carolina is a no-fault system. This means that workers’ compensation does not compare blame. The workers’ compensation law cannot make employers, co-employees, or other people treat you nicely or change how employers conduct business. Workers’ compensation is about ensuring that you receive treatment and your injuries are compensated.
