Can I bring a workers’ comp case and a wage claim at the same time?
Of course. Many of my clients have workers’ compensation cases pending at the same time that their wage claim is going on. Many people come to Strauss & Strauss after they leave their employment, when they are ready to bring an overtime wage claim against their employer. Because a lot of these people leave their employment because of a workplace injury, it is common for them to have wage claims and workers’ compensation cases going on at the same time.
The same is true with social security disability claimants. Strauss & Strauss does not handle social security disability law, so these individuals have a social security disability lawyer at the same time that they hire us for their wage claim. (We know a great Bakersfield social security lawyer who may be able to answer your questions if you have any.)
If you have questions about how a workers’ comp or social security disability case may affect your wage claim, do not hesitate to contact us.
