Construction Accidents

Wilmington, Delaware, Construction Accidents Lawyers

People who are injured in construction or other workplace accidents can apply for workers’ compensation. However, workers’ compensation doesn’t cover all of your losses and doesn’t pay anything for pain and suffering. At the law firm of Shelsby & Leoni in Wilmington, Delaware, our attorneys offer a free initial consultation to evaluate whether you can obtain full compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. We represent injured workers in Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

Workmans Compensation Law in Delaware and Maryland

Workers’ compensation laws shield employers from most lawsuits over workplace injuries. However, if you are injured by a third party such as a vendor, contractor, equipment manufacturer, or anyone else other than your employer, you can sue the third party.

Under Maryland law, in certain circumstances you can sue a co-worker who injures you. Our lawyers obtained a $3.2 million verdict for a man who severely injured his arm due to a co-worker’s negligence while working in the engine of a diesel truck. The insurance company in this case only offered the employee $20,000.
