If you have been injured on the job, and your injury is so severe that you are not able to return to work for at least 12 months, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare coverage in addition to your workers compensation benefits.
The medical requirements and benefit amounts are somewhat complicated, but you should always talk to an experienced Social Security disability lawyer to find out what additional benefits you may qualify for.
The Social Security system has entirely different criteria. Qualifying for Social Security benefits has become increasingly difficult over the past few years. Regulations are constantly changing to the detriment of these injured workers, and SSA is under more pressure than ever to deny claims. However, an experience an experienced Social Security attorney can help to guide your case to a successful outcome.
If you have been injured and cannot work, consider applying for social security benefits. Contact McGreal Disability Law online or call 312 906 9444 for a free case evaluation.
