Wilmington Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Throughout Delaware: Ready to fight for you
When an accident happens to you at work, your employer’s workers’ compensation coverage should cover it. Unfortunately, without aggressive lawyers who know the ins and outs of Delaware’s worker’s compensation laws, some under handed insurance companies will be looking to take advantage of an injured worker and deny him or her the money they deserve. Claims can be denied or the benefits do not go far enough to cover the full costs of the medical treatment you need.
“When it comes to fighting for my clients who’ve been injured while working, doing many of these types of jobs myself before becoming an attorney, and growing up with my parents and many other relatives and close family friends, who had worked for decades in the unions, do this kind of work, it means that I feel very comfortable with my clients and very able to empathize with them and what they are going through.”
– L. Vincent “Lee” Ramunno, Managing Attorney of Ramunno & Ramunno, P.A.

At Ramunno & Ramunno, P.A. we use or legal skills and knowledge to maximize your recovery, and, we use our personal experience to understand your situation. L. Vincent Ramunno, the managing attorney, comes from a family of construction workers. Mr. Ramunno’s father was a union construction worker, and Mr. Ramunno remembers the values and hard work ethic of his upbringing when it comes to fighting insurance companies and getting his client’s justice.
We realize that this is a very difficult time for you. Unless you’ve been injured at your job before, you probably have many questions, and often, you might have a workers’ compensation insurance adjuster telling you various things, many of which might not be true. For instance, it is amazing how so many people call us, in pain, and say they “have” to go to the doctor the insurance adjuster told them to go to. This simply isn’t true under Delaware law. You have a right to go to any doctor you want and you do not need to do as the insurance adjuster tells you.

BENEFITS FOR INJURED WORKERS UNDER DELAWARE LAW
In Delaware, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. After an injury on the job, you are entitled to coverage to cover your medical expenses and lost wages. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be able to secure:
- Total disability benefits
- Partial disability benefits
- Lump-sum settlements
- Medical expenses
There are also death benefits available to families who have lost a loved one in a work-related accident. Ramunno & Ramunno has represented a large number of families whose loved ones tragically died while on their jobs.
THIRD PARTY CLAIMS IN DELAWARE
If your work injuries were caused by a negligent third party, you may also be able to bring a claim against that person. For instance, if you were injured while driving a company vehicle while working, (for instance a DART bus) and got rear-ended by a careless driver. You have a worker’s compensation claim, and a separate claim against the negligent driver. This “third party claim” will be handled and paid for by the negligent driver’s auto insurance and your worker’s compensation claim will be paid for by your employer’s (in this example, DART’s) workman’s compensation insurance company. The lawyers at Ramunno & Ramunno see a surprising number of these types of cases and will make sure to get you top dollar for both of the claims.
