If someone is injured on the job, can they collect disability in additon to workmans comp if they also have a second job?

Question Details:

My GF works 2 full-time jobs. She injured her shoulder working at the first full-time day job and has not received surgery since it will put her out of work and money is tight. We have issues understanding what the laws are regarding what she can recieve. From what she was told she can only get workmans comp from the job she was injured on which makes sense. But can she also recieve disability also? What is the best course of action for someone working 2 full-time jobs and injured on the job at one job. She is refusing to get surgery and she is in constant pain. I want her to get it done.
