Can I Apply for Disability and Workers’ Comp at the Same Time?

Individuals can typically recover workers’ compensation benefits after sustaining any type of workplace injury or illness. If the injury or illness leads to a disability, workers’ compensation in California does have various aspects that allow for longer-term benefits. However, individuals may need to apply for Social Security disability benefits in the event the disability seems to be long-term.
