If you are injured on the job in Delaware, Workers’ Compensation can provide medical benefits, wage replacement, additional compensation for permanent impairments and disfigurement, and death benefits for dependents.

Workers’ Comp in Delaware
After an on-the-job accident, injury or occupational illness, you can apply for Workers’ Compensation benefits. Follow these steps to begin the claims process:
- If you are injured on the job, you should report the injury to your employer immediately and seek medical care.
- Give your employer notice of your workers’ comp claim for the period of disability beyond the third day after the accident.
- If your workers’ comp claim is denied, you can file for a hearing before the Industrial Accident Board within two years of the date of the accident.
We recommend speaking with an attorney before giving a statement to your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance company. Too often, injured workers say things in these statements that are later used to deny their claims. We can protect your rights during the claims process.
If your claim is denied, our lawyers can review the claim, correct errors and gather the necessary medical evidence to support your need for benefits. We will also represent you at the hearing before the Industrial Accident Board. Your employer will be represented by attorneys, so it is important to have a lawyer who is looking out for you.
