Negligence in Hiring, Training or Supervision in Delaware

When an owner, contractor or subcontractor on a construction site hires a new employee, care must be taken to ensure that the employee does not pose an unreasonable risk of injury to others on the site. The prospective employee must have the necessary skills to perform the job in a safe manner, or must receive adequate training to ensure the safety of others. In addition, employees must be appropriately supervised, so that they don’t do things that put the safety of other workers in jeopardy. If you have been injured on a construction site by a co-worker who was under-qualified, poorly trained or working without reasonable supervision, we can help.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we have focused our practice on helping injured people for more than three decades. We know that the careless act of another person can have a devastating impact on your life. We will listen closely to learn the details of your situation, as well as what you need to be made whole. We place a premium on communication, keeping you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options. We will use our skill, knowledge, experience and resources to help you get the outcome you want.

We offer a free initial consultation to every new client. To set up an appointment, ontact our office by e-mail or call us at (302) 777-1000.
