How much time do I have to report a work injury?

In South Carolina, you have 30 days to report a work injury, but it is best not to wait that long. Prompt reporting of an injury can reduce delays and help ensure you receive the medical care and benefits you are entitled to. Additionally, if you wait too long to report an injury, it can be difficult to prove that it occurred in the workplace, or you may encounter additional obstacles in the process of filing a claim. For these reasons, it is best to report any workplace injuries as soon as possible, preferably in writing.
