Workers Compensation Benefits
If you have previously been entitled to workers compensation benefits, we may be able to obtain further benefits once your Social Security case is won. However, disability must be "caused" by your injury. (What is a cause is legally complicated.) The injury may have been 20 years ago, if you reported it to the Labor Commission. DO NOT sign a settlement agreement with the insurance company without legal counsel. You may be signing away all your future rights and benefits.
