We represent injured workers in Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

Workmans Compensation Law in Delaware & 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 Delaware construction accident recently 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.
