Personal Injury Attorney in Delaware

Dangerous or Defective Stairways and Handrails | Slips and Falls | Serious and Catastrophic Injury | Wrongful Death

When a property owner fails to properly maintain a stairway or handrail, the risk of serious injury can be significant. A broken riser or tread on steps can easily cause you to lose your balance and tumble down a long flight of stairs. A broken or poorly secured handrail can result in broken bones, muscle sprains or strains, or even brain or spinal cord injury. If you or someone you love has suffered injury because of a negligently maintained stairway or handrail, we have the skill, knowledge, experience and resources to help you get full and fair compensation for your losses.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, with offices in Wilmington, we offer more than three decades of experience to people in Delaware who have suffered a personal injury. The hallmark of our practice is our straightforward approach. We will carefully gather as much information about your injury as we can so that we can fully assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case, as well as your likelihood of success. We will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed. We will always tell you what you need to know even when it’s not what you want to hear.
