WORKERS COMPENSATION LAWYERS DELAWARE

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 1.1 million workers in the United States had to take time off of work due to an on-the-job injury or illness in 2013 alone. When an individual has to miss work, they often lose out on income relied upon by their households to pay bills and basic expenses. The lost wages are usually in addition to the costs incurred by the worker for medical treatment for their condition. When an injury or illness is caused by occupational factors, the employer should be responsible for helping to support the worker during their recovery. Fortunately for injured workers and their families, the law in Delaware requires all public and private sector employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance if they employ any workers. Workers’ comp insurance is intended to provide medical benefits, replacement wages, and more for employees who suffer work-related diseases, injuries, or other medical issues. If you believe you are entitled to this type of benefits, an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in Delaware can help to ensure you receive the maximum amount you deserve.

Your Delaware Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Can Help

Just because you suffer an illness or injury at work does not mean that you will automatically start receiving the benefits you deserve. There are many ways that an insurer may attempt to avoid paying the full amount to cover your losses or even avoid paying you benefits at all. Having the guidance of an experienced work comp attorney can help ensure you correctly follow all legal procedures for filing a claim and appealing a denial if necessary.

Workers’ comp claims are time-sensitive, so you should never delay in reporting an illness or injury to your employer, requesting the necessary medical services, and giving notice of a claim for compensation. If your employer or the insurer refuses to cover the medical treatment or provide adequate benefits, you have a certain amount of time to file a petition for review by the Delaware Office of Workers’ Compensation.

Filing a petition for review of your work comp case can be a complicated process and involves many specific steps. First, you must complete a detailed pretrial memorandum that lists the particular benefits you seek and any witnesses that may be involved in a hearing, such as medical professionals. Though the hearing does not follow civil court procedures, it is still a formal proceeding during which you will have to present evidence to support your claim that you deserve benefits. Having quality representation for a lawyer during this hearing is imperative to ensure that the hearing officer finds in your favor and awards you the full amount you deserve.
