Delaware Worker Comp Attorneys
Worker Compensation Attorney in Delaware
All Delaware employers with at least one employee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover those employees in the event of a work-related accident or disease. If you are injured at work or contract a work-related disease, you may need a worker compensation attorney in Delaware to help you obtain the maximum workers’ compensation benefits.
We can help you receive the benefits to which you are entitled
Although you are entitled to compensation for work-related injuries, a workers’ compensation insurer may attempt to pay you less than you are entitled to or not pay you benefits at all. Our Delaware worker comp attorneys can help you receive the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled, including payment for your medical expenses, lost income, and any permanent impairment you suffer because of the work-related injury.
Act now—do not wait
If you suffer injuries while at work, you must take some immediate steps to insure that you are covered by the workers’ compensation insurance. Your employer needs to be notified immediately of your accident or occupational disease. Failure to give timely notice to your employer may mean that you are denied workers’ compensation benefits. To preserve your right to collect for your lost wages, you must also notify your employer if your work injury or disease keeps you from working.
We can advise you
Workers’ compensation is your exclusive remedy against your employer following a work-related accident, and you may not sue your employer for damages resulting from the accident. However, in addition to workers’ compensation benefits, you may also be able to recover from other third parties responsible for your injury. Our Delaware worker compensation attorneys can guide you through that process. Please see our Personal Injury page for further information.
