A. In the event you are cited as being responsible for an automobile accident while working, you generally are still able to recover for injuries under workers’ compensation. The only notable exception would be if you were intoxicated at the time of the accident. Under South Carolina law, workers’ compensation is not a fault-based system. Thus, the fact the accident is your fault is not relevant, excluding the exceptions above. However, as noted above, workers compensation does not allow for recovery of pain and suffering.
