Skilled Assistance With The Workers’ Compensation Process
If you suffered an injury on the job, you have the right to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. But the workers’ comp system is full of red tape, delays and loopholes that can eat up your time and even prevent you from getting proper medical care. Many workers receive a denial from their employer’s insurance companies.
You should not have to struggle with the workers’ comp process, especially when you already have the herculean task of recovering from an injury. Allow The Disability Law Office of Jeffrey S. Lichtman, LLC, based in Philadelphia and Reading, Pennsylvania, and southern New Jersey to assist you in finding the right attorney to help you with your workers’ compensation claim.
The workers’ compensation attorneys we work with will do everything in their power to help you recover the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
Can I Receive Both Workers’ Comp And Social Security?
The short answer is “yes.” Some workplace injuries will qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). It is a case-by-case situation and depends upon the severity of the injuries and the rest of the factors for disability (such as your age, education, ability to speak, read and write, work history and physical and mental limitations from your impairments). Workers’ compensation benefits tend to be temporary, intended to provide income to workers as they heal from their injuries, though some injuries can be life-altering and result in large awards of cash benefits for lost income. SSDI is intended for injuries that prevent someone from working for more than 12 months. Receiving workers’ compensation benefits does not affect your chances of being found disabled one way or the other by the Social Security Administration. However, depending upon the amount of money you were making when you worked, the receipt of workers’ compensation benefits can reduce dramatically the amount of Social Security Disability Insurance benefits to which you may be entitled.
