Worker’s compensation forms in SC must be completed and submitted to the SC Workers’ Compensation Commission at every stage of the process – from filing an initial claim through the final settlement of the workers’ comp case.
All these forms are not intended for the claimant to file, although some must be filed by the claimant or their attorney like the Form 50 Claimant’s Notice of Claim and Request for Hearing.
If you are represented by counsel, most of the forms are intended for use by your employer, the attorneys in the case, or the court. If you are not sure whether you need to submit a workers’ compensation form in your case or what the deadlines are, talk to your Myrtle Beach worker’s compensation attorney on the Axelrod team to find out what your next steps are.
