You can seek compensation after a work-related injury

Social Security Disability (SSD) and workers' compensation have differences that are important to understand as someone who may need to use either of these sources of benefits. Workers' compensation can help you get the compensation you need after a workplace accident. Comparatively, SSD begins to provide income to you after you are incapable of returning to work due to a disability.

The main difference between the two forms of payments is that workers' compensation covers any injuries that your employer would be liable for. For example, if you fall and hit your head at work, your employer would be liable for that injury. That makes it possible for you to make a workers' compensation claim.

On the other hand, SSD is not paid through your employer. Instead, it comes from the state or federal government, depending on the length of time you've had your disability. Disability benefits still cover and help replace some of your lost income.

You may be eligible for both workers' compensation and state or SSD benefits at the same time, but you can't always claim both. However, each case is different, and some people can collect both SSD and workers' compensation at the same time. SSD is partially reduced by the amount you receive in workers' compensation, so that's something to keep in mind.

Whether you have an illness like Lyme Disease or tetanus or have a physical injury, you deserve to be treated fairly by your employer. If you are struggling to get a workers' compensation claim approved, SSD may be another option. Your attorney can help you apply. Our site has more on the steps to take next.
