Attorney for Occupational Illness in Delaware

Occupational Illness or Disease | Cancer | Heart Disease | Exposure to Toxic or Dangerous Substances | Skin Disease

Under the workers’ compensation laws in Delaware, you have a right to benefits if you cannot work because of an illness caused by your job. You may have been exposed to dangerous carcinogens, resulting in some form of cancer. You might have asbestosis or Mesothelioma, or heart disease stemming from work. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to establish that a disease or illness was directly related to your employment. You want an experienced and effective attorney to help you get the benefits you deserve.

At the law office of Michael J. Hood, in Wilmington, we bring more than three decades of experience to personal injury victims in Delaware, including people who have contracted an occupational illness or disease. We take an aggressive approach, conducting a thorough investigation of your accident, interviewing witnesses and traveling to your former place of employment, if necessary. Attorney Hood will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make intelligent decisions about your future.
