The Wilmington workers' comp knee injury lawyers at Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty are committed advocates of employees throughout Delaware. We will fight aggressively to help you secure the medical care and injured worker benefits you deserve.Delaware Work-Related Knee Injuries
Our attorneys work every day with tradesmen, construction workers, nurses and other Delaware employees who are on their feet most of the day and who have been injured on the job. These workers get hurt in workplace accidents or over time through repetitive stress and strain.
We advocate aggressively for injured workers, obtaining workers' compensation benefits that allow them to recover:
- Current and ongoing medical costs
- Lost wages and lost potential income
- Lost quality of life from a permanent injury, disability or other factors
We know how to challenge denied claims or reductions in benefits. We can also help you receive the medical attention you need to recover from your work injury and get back on the job if that is physically possible.We Add Value For Our Clients
There is no upfront fee for us to represent you. If we successfully recover your claim, a judge determines what our attorney fee should be — generally 12 to 15 percent — and it is deducted from the compensation.
We do not take cases that we can't add value to. If we do not believe we can put more money in your pocket even after our fee is paid, we will tell you as much and recommend how you should proceed without paying an attorney.
We can answer your questions and review your case during a free consultation. Call us or use our contact form to schedule an appointment.
