Workers’ compensation in Delaware (and in most other states) covers injuries occurring at work, whether by accident or overuse, or illness resulting from occupational exposure. Several kinds of benefits are available, including two kinds of lost wage benefits, medical benefits, benefits for a permanent injury, disfigurement benefits, and some ancillary claims like mileage and expense reimbursements. Your case may involve questions of causation, issues involving pre-existing conditions, or even whether Delaware is the correct jurisdiction for the claim (if your employer is located somewhere else, or the accident happened in a different state, for example).
All Delaware employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. We handle work injury cases in all three counties, and injuries occurring outside of Delaware while working for a Delaware employer may also be covered. Insurance companies are not always the best source of information about your rights – they may not tell you ‘the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.’ Contact us today to find out about your case and know your rights. There is no fee for an initial consultation in a workers’ compensation case.
