What If You Are Injured and Unable to Work?

When disability or illness stops you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. In addition, you might be able to get benefits from Georgia Workers’ Compensation depending on whether you were injured or became disabled due to your work. But, often, getting the benefits you deserve can be a slow and frustrating process.

Most people who apply for Social Security benefits are denied the first time. Also, many workers who are injured on the job are denied the workers’ compensation benefits they need to help pay for medical treatment and other expenses. The people who apply are left to worry about what they can do to provide for their loved ones and cover their costs.

Unfortunately, some employers are quite skillful at preventing their employees from obtaining proper disability benefits, particularly in cases where an injury or illness persists for a long time. By hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer to protect your rights to proper benefits, you may change your situation for the better.

What is The Difference Between SSDI and Workers’ Compensation?

SSDI disability benefits are based on different criteria than workers’ compensation benefits. You could be eligible for one or both of them.

Each state has its own workers’ comp program. A workers’ compensation attorney familiar with Georgia’s workers’ compensation laws can help you if you have been injured at work.

In the majority of cases, workers’ compensation is meant to be temporary. It allows employees who have been injured at work to continue to receive income while they recover or while they wait for SSDI long-term disability benefits to kick in.

These programs are separate, so one doesn’t qualify you for the other. So, if you don’t qualify for one, it won’t adversely affect the other.
