People who sustain serious injuries at work in Minnesota may be eligible for BOTH workers’ compensation wage loss benefits and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. In other cases, a work injury in combination with other non-work related medical conditions may qualify an injured worker for both SSDI and Minnesota workers’ compensation benefits.
If you are pursuing a SSDI disability claim, based in whole or in part on a work injury or a medical condition caused by your work activities, you should strongly consider exploring a Minnesota workers’ compensation claim as well.
We routinely meet folks in our Minnesota workers’ compensation practice who pursue a SSDI disability claim and overlook their potential workers’ compensation claims. In many instances, you can receive both! Don’t leave money sitting on the table!
