Kimmel, Carter, Roman & Peltz is a Delaware law firm with forty years’ experience working on behalf of injured workers. The firm specializes in personal injury and worker’s compensation cases from its two offices in the Delaware Valley metropolitan area with a dedicated staff and powerhouse lawyers eager to see justice done for their clients.
On Delaware worker’s compensation issues, our lawyers have maintained a leadership role in Delaware, arranging settlements, recoveries, and benefit commutation on behalf of hundreds of clients. If benefits have been delayed or reduced — or even terminated early — our Worker’s Compensation can see that things are put right. The result has been hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost benefits restored.
There is a mistaken belief that if a client has been harmed by a work injury in Delaware, then the worker’s comp law will prevent a lawsuit. This is untrue: in general, an injured worker is only prevented from suing their employers. The modern worksite is so often congested with contractors and agents of other companies that a workplace injury may well be the fault of someone employed by another company. If defective equipment is the cause of the injury, then recovery may be possible from the manufacturer or vendor. And it may even be possible to bring a lawsuit against a worker’s employer if the injury was not simple negligence, but due to malice or intoxication.
We should also remember that workplace injuries happen at other people’s job sites, too. You can suffer a broken arm from debris falling from a Wilmington construction zone, slip and fall at a supermarket, have a traffic collision with a delivery van from a flower shop, or suffer severe burns at a Newark restaurant. In each of these cases, you may have a valid lawsuit against the business for its failure to take reasonable precautions against harming others. A New Castle county personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you what recovery you can expect for your losses.
