Could Workers' Comp Affect My Social Security Benefits?

Any individual who has sustained a temporary or permanent disability as a result of a workplace accident may have the right to pursue workers' compensation benefits in addition to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. If you are looking to seek maximum benefits, we strongly advise you obtain legal counsel first so that you gain a full understanding of how workers' comp could affect your Social Security benefits. Filing these types of claims on your own could mean you will be ineligible to receive the full benefits available to you. Hiring a Phoenix workers' compensation attorney, who also has years of experience representing clients in Social Security Disability cases, will give you a much better chance to maximum your claim and minimize how much your payments may be reduced.

If your combined benefits are more than 80% of your average earnings, prior to you becoming temporarily or permanently disabled, then your SSD benefits will likely be reduced accordingly. Our firm can help you minimize your offset amount by helping you determine what expenses may be able to be excluded prior to calculating your settlement figure, help you avoid being penalized for accepting a lump sum payment or follow up on other options designed to limit the amount your benefits will be reduced. When working with these types of claims, no two cases will ever be exactly the same.

To improve your chances of being able to defend your rights and get the compensation you are eligible to receive, without being unnecessarily penalized, you are going to need an attorney who is committing to aggressively fighting on your behalf. The attorneys at our firm have 50 years combined experience practicing law. Our lead attorney is a specialist in the field of workers' compensation law so we know the laws pertaining to these types of benefits backwards and forwards. No matter what situation you face, you can trust that we will work in earnest to help you resolve your case with the most optimum results.
