Delaware Workers' Compensation Attorney
Those who sustain injuries at work or during the completion of their work related duties or suffer from diseases caused by their work environment are legally entitled to compensation. Injuries sustained during falls, accidents while driving a company vehicle, or exposure to toxic chemicals are examples of the wide range of accidents covered by workers’ compensation benefits.
Workers’ Compensation covers a variety of benefits for different circumstances. Medical benefits cover the cost of physician and hospital visits, along with medication and physical therapy. Delaware workers’ compensation laws provide benefits to those who have suffered permanent scarring, disfigurement, or permanent impairment. There are benefits that cover lost wages caused by your inability to work. Death benefits are also available to the family of a worker who was fatally injured during a work related accident.

Frequently Asked Questions
What, if anything could cause my claim to be denied by my employer?
If you were breaking company policy or tests showed that you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident, your claim may be denied.
Do I need to accept medical treatment in order to collect my workers’ compensation benefits?
Yes, you will need to accept treatment for your injury and it is always best to see a medical professional as soon as possible.
Can I still receive workers’ compensation benefits if my injury happened off location?
As long as you were engaged in a work activity during the time of your injury, you should still be eligible for workers’ compensation. So, for instance, if you were on a delivery and slipped and fell, any injuries sustained would most likely be covered by workers’ compensation; however, injuries sustained in a car accident on the way to work would not be.
