Can I receive unemployment benefits and workers' compensation benefits?

Receiving unemployment benefits does not preclude you from receiving workers' compensation benefits.  Further, receiving workers' compensation benefits does not preclude an injured worker from receiving unemployment benefits.  However, the workers' compensation carrier will likely be entitled to a credit against any unemployment benefits a workers' compensation claimant receives.  If you have any questions about the impact of receiving unemployment benefits on your workers' compensation claim, contact Atlanta work injury attorney Brian H.
