Workers' Compensation And Social Security Disability

If a work-related injury has left you permanently disabled and unable to return to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

At Cousins, Desrosiers & Morizio, P.C., we offer comprehensive services for injured workers throughout the state of Connecticut. We frequently help injured workers pursue Social Security benefits, offering them legal advice and guidance to maximize their chances of success and pursue the benefits to which they are entitled.

The Social Security Administration has stringent standards for what constitutes a qualifying disability, and many applications for benefits are initially denied. It is important to work with an attorney who is knowledgeable about the claims process and experienced in securing the appropriate benefits for injured clients.

If the Social Security Administration denied your legitimate claim for disability benefits, our attorneys are here to guide you through the appeals process. We can help you with denied claims, claim reconsideration, terminated benefits and appeals. Our Bridgeport Social Security lawyers will fight to preserve your interests at every stage of the appeals process, including any court hearings or hearings before administrative law judges.

How Social Security Affects Workers' Compensation

Sometimes a work-related injury covered under the state's workers' compensation laws can result in a disability that is eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. When these two areas of the law overlap, the smallest technicality can mean the difference between success and failure.

Timing is essential in Social Security Disability claims, especially when you are receiving workers' compensation or have an active workers' comp claim. In some situations, receiving workers' compensation may offset your entitlement to Social Security benefits. These matters are highly technical, and our experienced Board-Certified Workers' Compensation Specialists know when to timely apply for the proper benefits to maximize your chances of success and pursue the compensation you deserve.
