Your burn injury lawyer can review your case and answer any questions you may have.  

Q: Can I get compensation for a burn at work in South Carolina?

A: Cases involving burn injuries sustained while performing your job duties can become complicated. If you have suffered burn injuries at work, you may have a claim for workers’ compensation.
