I absolutely recommend These guys! Jessie (sorry if it’s spelled wrong) was amazing! She was so kind through the whole process, they kept in contact and always updated me the same day they knew something so did I! They have made this entire experience very easy on me and always told me everything upfront and took time to explain any and everything I had questions about! I’d choose them again in a heart beat! Thank you all so much!

Every employee at the Freibott firm treated me with the utmost respect from the very beginning. I had requested the firm after an auto accident I was in back in September 2018. These guys worked extremely hard in getting me the best possible settlement and offer. They were extremely reliable with answering any questions I had and responded almost instantly (never took more then a few hours to respond back to emails). They made the process extremely easy for myself and pretty much did all the work in getting the settlement completed and finalized, and did it very fast, in just a few months time. I am extremely impressed by this firm and the work ethic each and every one of the employees have there. I definitely am going to be recommending Freibott law firm to anyone and everyone I know that may need a lawyer. They will be highly recommended by me! Great service, great people, great experience! Definitely hire these guys as your lawyer! You won’t be disappointed! Thank you to everyone who worked on my case/claim. I greatly appreciate everything you guys did. Great team you have over there! Keep it up!

I truly do not wish hurt on anyone, but in the unfortunate event that you do get hurt and have a claim I wouldn't recommend anyone else BUT the freibott law firm. The staff are very professional and courteous. I know I bugged Ms Edea and Ms Susan with the constant emailing asking when could I expect my money lol but they didn't mind and always responded expeditiously. The environment is a welcoming, calm feeling like you know everything is going to be ok. They far exceeded my expectations and some. And unlike other lawyers who kill you with all the fees, the Freibott law firm kept there share to the 1/3rd. If anyone is in need of a good lawyer to represent them, I say to you look no further than "THE FREIBOTT LAW FIRM"

I met with Dennis Mason about an accident that I had where a motorist ran a stop sign and my car was totaled. I ended up with a concussion. Dennis was very genuine and appeared to be first concerned about my health. He was very honest with me and told me that I may not receive much from my injury because I am healing quickly and will make a full recovery. He said it was better if I settled with the insurance company by myself and gave me a few tips on how to handle them. I really appreciated his honestly and professionalism. That is hard to find nowadays.

We recently worked with the Freibott Law Firm on a series of commercials and testimonial videos. While shooting these videos we got to know Fred and his staff, a very friendly and professional team. We also got to hear the testimonials of many satisfied clients who were represented in injury cases and awarded. If I am ever injured, I'll be calling Fred.

I can’t give enough thanks to the Freibott Law Firm. In March of 2016 I was involved in an automobile accident. I was referred to the Freibott team by the chiropractor I was seeing at the time. They are a fantastic group of people who care about the clients they serve. They made the case hassle free, which was very appreciated, I had just lost my husband ( who would normally have been my ‘rock’ ) and was very vulnerable. They made everything so much easier to take care of. From the medical bills to the settlement, the Freibott team took care of it. Thank you so very much!Kimberly E.

Common Workers Comp FAQs

This is a common concern among injured Delaware employees. From a legal standpoint, you do not have to retain a workers’ compensation lawyer. Delaware workers’ compensation laws does not require that you obtain legal counsel. You can file the claim yourself. However, the Delaware workers’ compensation system, like all areas of law, is very complex and if you file the claim yourself you may very well jeopardize your case. A Delaware workers’ compensation claim needs to be handled by an experienced attorney. If there is one aspect of the claim filing process you overlook or do incorrectly you can disqualify yourself from obtaining benefits.

This is another common concern work injury victims have. It costs nothing out of pocket to hire a Georgetown, Delaware, workers compensation lawyer at The Freibott Law Firm. We handle all accident, injury, workers’ compensation and wrongful death claims on a contingency fee basis. This means we cover any and all costs associated with your claim. We charge no fees of any kind unless we recover benefits, damages and financial compensation for you and your family.

The true, current and future dollar value of your claim is a very difficult and very time consuming task. It is almost impossible to determine the value of an injury claim immediately after the accident. Some injuries may take longer to present and you may feel fine immediately following the accident.

When determining the full value of your claim, our workers’ compensation lawyers will take all factors into consideration. These include: lost wages (current and future), medical expenses (current and future), and disability benefits. Ensuring that you get the maximum amount of compensation and benefits is another reason why it makes sense to retain our Newark Delaware workers’ compensation lawyers.

No, you absolutely cannot! If you have been fired, laid off or experienced a change in your hours, shifts or job description as a result of having filed a workers’ compensation claim in Delaware, contact the workers’ compensation lawyers at The Freibott Law Firm. Delaware Labor laws explicitly prohibit an injured worker being fired, or otherwise retaliated against, for filing a work compensation claim.

That depends. Delaware, like other states, has laws in place that pertain to injuries sustained on the way to work, from work or running a work related errand. These laws are explained via Delaware’s Coming and Going Rule. Our Seaford, Delaware workers’ compensation lawyers will analyze your claim and decide if you have a case.

The State of Delaware has a Subsequent Injury Fund for cases like these. Rather than try to decide for yourself if this fund is applicable in your case, please contact our Millsboro Delaware, workers’ compensation lawyers and let them review your case. They will do everything in their power to get you the benefits and financial compensation you deserve.
