Final Settlement of Your Case
If you have a permanent injury, your employer’s workers’ compensation provider may want to reach a settlement with you, rather than paying you benefits over the course of your lifetime. How you structure the settlement is important and could affect your ability to receive additional workers’ compensation benefits and other types of benefits, including Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Medicare.
If you have been injured in a work related accident, protect your rights by retaining an attorney. Contact Our Law Office today.
Avoiding SSDI and Medicare Pitfalls
The amount of workers’ compensation benefits you receive could affect your right to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments and Medicare medical benefits. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney may be able to structure your workers’ compensation settlement in a way that protects your ability to receive SSDI and Medicare assistance.
