Workers’ Compensation

All Delaware employers are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance to compensate their employees for work related injuries or illnesses. Even if the workers’ compensation insurance company or the employer is paying your lost wages and/or medical bills following a work injury, it is still very important to seek the assistance of an attorney that practices workers’ compensation law. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you potentially receive compensation for your lost wages, permanent injuries, disfigurement or scarring, loss of earning capacity, and mileage and also help you receive the medical attention you need.

Scott Kappes and Kyle Kemmer have over 35 years combined practice before Delaware’s Industrial Accident Board (the agency that adjudicates workers’ compensation cases). Mr. Kappes and Mr. Kemmer handle workplace injuries in all three counties and are available for home or hospital visits. Some of the types of work injuries that they handle include:

Spinal injuries – including those caused by overuse;

Head or traumatic brain injuries;

Motor vehicle accidents while working – regardless of whose fault it is;

Slip and fall injuries while working;

Repetitive movement and overuse injuries such a carpal tunnel and tendonitis;

Chemical exposure;

Machine accidents – including burns, amputations and scarring;

Neck or upper extremity injury from computer usage.

Mr. Kappes and Mr. Kemmer never charge a fee for an initial consultation and there is no fee unless you receive a monetary recovery.
