Wilmington Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Fighting for Delaware's Injured Workers Since 1995
You have devoted your skills and hard work to your job. If you are injured on that job, you deserve compensation which can be sought under workers’ compensation laws. The workers’ comp system allows you to seek benefits for a personal injury or occupational disease sustained at the workplace or at a work-related activity regardless of whether it is directly connected with your job. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if your employer was not negligent or otherwise at fault.
At Bifferato Gentilotti, LLC, we have helped thousands of injured individuals and their families in Delaware since 1995. We thoroughly understand the workers’ compensation system and can give you the legal assistance needed with filing your claim, appealing denials, and more. Our dedicated Wilmington workers’ compensation attorneys have the skills and tenacity needed to help you achieve a favorable result.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Under Delaware workers’ compensation law, employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance.
- Compensation for permanent disability
- Dependents’ recovery for a worker’s death
- Lost wages or salary
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses
- Retraining costs
Under the law, employers are prohibited from firing or otherwise discriminating against you for making a workers’ comp claim or testifying in a workers’ comp case in court.
Appealing Workers’ Compensation Decisions
If you have been denied benefits, you must immediately file an appeal of an unjust workers’ compensation denial. Failure to file an appeal in time bars you from recovery of compensation you rightfully deserve. Our firm can handle the rigid bureaucratic process of appealing to the Delaware Workers’ Compensation Board on your behalf.
Waiving Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If you suspect your injuries were caused by your job or job related activities, seek legal advice before accepting any benefits.
Third-Party Claims for Injured Workers
Under workers’ compensation law, you are not entitled to recompense for pain and suffering from your employer. However, you might be able to pursue compensation for pain and suffering and emotional distress through a workplace injury claim. A workplace injury claim may be viable if your injury was caused by the fault of a third party—someone other than you, a co-worker, or your employer.
For instance, perhaps a piece of equipment you were using on the job was defective. Or, while on the job, you were in a motor vehicle accident caused by another person who was not a co-worker. Or your worksite itself was unsafe (and was owned by someone other than your employer).
At Bifferato Gentilotti, we have significant experience with on-the-job injury claims. We can evaluate whether you have a claim against a third party. If you do, we will pursue it with diligence and speed to get you the compensation you deserve.
