Delaware Workers' Compensation Attorneys
Experienced Legal Help for the Injured Worker
In the state of Delaware, all employers with at least one employee are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. The insurance provides coverage for workers who suffer a workplace injury or work-related disease. According to Delaware workers' compensation law both full-time and part-time employees are eligible to receive benefits.
While employees are not required to show that their employer was negligent, they must be able to show that their injury was work-related and they must be able to establish the extent of their injury. As with any type of insurance benefit, there is often a great deal of red tape as the insurance company fights to save as much money as possible by denying claims or minimizing the amount they pay on claims.

Get Maximum Compensation for Your Occupational Injuries
Because our workers' compensation lawyers handle both workers' compensation and personal injury claims, we can pursue the full compensation you are entitled to receive by law. While workers' compensation is generally the sole remedy a worker has against their employer, an employee may have the ability to file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party that played a role in a workplace accident.
Accidents, Injuries and Occupational Disease
Workers' compensation benefits are available to workers who are injured because of a work-related accident, repetitive physical or mental stress arising from their job, or a work-related disease (sometimes called an occupational disease). Whether you have suffered a back or neck injury, brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, disfigurement, loss of limb or other work-related injury, we will aggressively pursue the full compensation you are entitled to receive.
