South Carolina Renovates Worker's Comp System

Gov. Mark Sanford joined with business groups from across South Carolina to sign a worker's compensation reform bill. The changes made in the bill, S.332, are aimed at injecting predictability, consistency, and rationality into the state's worker's compensation system.

Among the changes made in the bill are:

  • Abolishing the Second Injury Fund,
  • Stronger language on costly "repetitive trauma" claims;
  • Stricter requirements for medical expert testimony; and
  • Changes to the "50 percent back" rule, which before presumed total back loss with many workplace injuries.
