SC Code § 42-11-110 (2013) What's This?

There shall be no presumption that disablement from any cause or infirmity is the result of a occupational disease, nor that an occupational disease will result in disablement or disability. But when disability results from a disease which is compensable under other provisions of this Title, although not an occupational disease, the employee shall not be deprived of any benefits to which he may be entitled because he may have misconceived his remedy to be for an occupational disease.
