If you've been injured on the job in Ulster County, it's important to understand your rights and the benefits that may be available to you. At Peter M. Cordovano P.C., we specialize in workers' compensation and Social Security Disability law, and we're here to help you navigate the complex process of obtaining the benefits you deserve.
What is Workers' Compensation?
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.
In Ulster County, employers are required by law to carry workers' compensation insurance to protect their employees in case of injury or illness. If you've been injured on the job, it's important to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible and to seek medical treatment.
What is Social Security Disability?
Social Security Disability is a federal program that provides benefits to individuals who are unable to work due to a disability. To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you must have a severe medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, and the condition must prevent you from performing substantial gainful activity.
In some cases, an injured worker may be eligible for both workers' compensation benefits and Social Security Disability benefits. However, there are rules and regulations governing how these benefits interact with each other, and it's important to work with an experienced attorney to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
