Attorney for Workers Injured by Falling from Heights on Job Sites in Delaware

Helping Workers Injured on Job Sites across Delaware

At a construction site, even if you are working on a ladder or the roof of a single-story structure, a fall can lead to serious injuries. When the injury results from the careless or negligent act of another person — the failure to properly construct or place a ladder or scaffold, or to ensure that guard rails are functional and in place — you want an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for your losses.

At the law office of Michael J. Hood, we have more than 31 years of experience, representing injured people in Delaware. We take a no-nonsense approach in our personal injury practice. We won’t set unrealistic expectations, but will carefully gather as much information as we can so that we fully understand the strengths and weaknesses of your case and can give you an honest assessment of the value of your claim, as well as your chances of success. You will work directly with attorney Hood throughout the legal process. We will keep you updated on all developments in your case, including your options, so that you can make informed decisions about your future.

At our office, every prospective client receives a free initial consultation. Call us at (302) 777-1000 or contact us online for an appointment.
