Other Benefits & Workers Comp

Can I Receive Other Benefits in Addition to Workers’ Comp?

Social Security Disability and Personal Injury Claim Benefits May Be Available

If you are the victim of an accident at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, your injury could also fall under areas of law related to Social Security Disability or personal injury. A lawyer at The Sexton Law Firm can help you determine the right legal path to take in recovery after an injury.

Determining the Right Benefits for Your Situation

Potential benefits depend on your unique situation, including the severity of your injuries and the available insurance coverage.

  • Workers’ Compensation vs. Social Security Disability

It is possible for a workers’ compensation case to evolve into a disability case. If your injury is so severe that you are unable to return to work, it may be more appropriate to seek long-term disability benefits in some cases.

If you are already receiving disability benefits from a federal program or California state program, then your attorney can discuss how one program’s benefits could affect the other.

  • Workers’ Compensation vs. Personal Injury

If your employer does not subscribe to a workers’ compensation insurance program, then it may be more appropriate to pursue a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim may cover a broader range of injuries and entitle you to a more flexible use of benefits than a traditional workers’ comp program.
