WORKERS' COMPENSATION LAWYERS

South Carolina workers' compensation covers medical care and lost wages for a work-related injury. But employers and their insurance carriers may challenge your claim, undercut your benefits or try to pressure you back to work.

You have many rights under the law but you may need a lawyer's help to assert them. The law firm of McCutchen Vaught Geddie & Hucks, P.A., represents injured workers in Horry County and Georgetown County in workers' comp claims, hearings and appeals. Contact us today for experienced and aggressive legal advocacy.

The MVGH firm has served the Grand Strand since 1989 and our lead workers' compensation attorney, Gene Vaught, has represented injured workers for more than 25 years. We represent employees in all occupations and industries, including construction workers, plumbers and electricians; restaurant, hotel and resort employees; nurses and health care workers; teachers and more.

WORK INJURY ATTORNEYS

We have helped clients with all types of work-related injuries, from a back injury to broken bones to repetitive stress injuries. It is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible after seeking medical attention. However, we intervene at all stages of a workers' compensation claim:

  • When temporary benefits are denied or delayed after being out of work for weeks

  • When the insurance adjuster won't authorize treatment or seeing a specialist

  • When the insurance doctor clears the worker to go resume work without conducting an X-ray or exam

  • When employers threaten termination if the employee doesn't go back to work

  • When employers put workers at risk of further injury by ignoring light duty restrictions

Myrtle Beach workers' compensation attorney Gene Vaught has served on the board of the Injured Workers' Advocates (formerly known as the Association of Claimants' Attorneys for Workers' Compensation) and has taught seminars on various aspects of workers' compensation. His knowledge and litigation experience enables the average worker to stand up for what he or she deserves.

We represent clients in hearings before the South Carolina Workers' Compensation Commission on all types of issues, such as compensable claims, medical authorization, permanent disability and lump-sum settlements.
