If you've been injured on the job or are unable to work due to a disability, you may be eligible for both workers' compensation and Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. At Peter M. Cordovano P.C., we specialize in both areas of law and can help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
Workers' Compensation Benefits
Workers' compensation is a system that provides benefits to employees who are injured on the job or who develop a work-related illness. These benefits may include medical treatment, wage replacement, and vocational rehabilitation.
If you've been injured on the job in Columbia County, it's important to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible and to seek medical treatment. Your employer is required by law to carry workers' compensation insurance to protect their employees in case of injury or illness.
Social Security Disability Benefits
Social Security Disability (SSD) is a federal program that provides benefits to individuals who are unable to work due to a disability. These benefits may include monthly payments, medical coverage, and vocational rehabilitation.
To qualify for SSD benefits, you must have a medical condition that meets the Social Security Administration's definition of disability, and you must have worked long enough and recently enough to have earned sufficient "work credits."
How Can a Workers' Compensation Attorney Help?
If you're unable to work due to a disability, a workers' compensation attorney can help you navigate the SSD application process and increase your chances of approval. They can help you gather the necessary medical evidence, fill out the application, and appeal a denial if necessary.
