WILMINGTON— An employee who is injured on the job – even if he or she is living in the country without legal permission and falsified paperwork to gain employment – is entitled to workers’ compensation, according to a first-of-its kind ruling in Delaware.

The decision by Superior Court Judge Jerome O. Herlihy came in the case of Delaware Valley Field Services against 47-year-old Saul Melgar Ramirez, who has been deported to Honduras. It affirmed an earlier ruling by the state Industrial Accident Board.

Attorneys for Delaware Valley Field Services, a company that does maintenance and property management on foreclosed homes for banks, are appealing the ruling to the Delaware Supreme Court.
