Injuries can lead to workers' comp and disability benefits

Most people in Ohio know that if they are injured on the job, they can apply for workers' compensation benefits that can help cover lost wages, medical expenses and even rehabilitation treatments. For a lot of people, workers' comp benefits are incredibly important because they make sure that an injured worker is being provided for financially, allowing the worker to focus on recovery instead of their expenses.

But did you know that workers' comp isn't the only benefit you could be eligible for after suffering a work-related injury? As you probably know, temporary disability is paid out to injured workers who are unable to work for a limited period of time. But what happens if that time period lapses and a person is still unable to work? This is where permanent partial disability, permanent total disability benefits, or even Social Security Disability can come into play.

If you are considered disabled and are unable to work because of your condition, you may quickly realize that you won't be receiving a paycheck, which means your finances could suffer. Workers' comp benefits and disability benefits can help though because they can offset the loss of a majority of your wages in many cases and can help offset medical bills as well.

As regular readers of our blog are well aware by now, getting access to the workers' comp benefits you deserve can be an arduous affair that can require the help of a skilled attorney, such as those found here at The Bainbridge Firm, LLC. Unfortunately, the same is true about disability benefits through the Social Security Administration. Thankfully, our attorneys here at our firm have experience in both workers' comp and SSD, which is a benefit to you if you just learned that you may be eligible for both benefits and are considering applying for them in the near future.
