Third Party Work Related Accident Attorney in Elsmere, DE

Workplace Injuries Caused by Third Parties | Motor Vehicle Accidents | Dangerous or Defective Products | Negligence by Third Parties

Under the laws of Delaware, injured workers must use the state workers’ compensation process to recover for most losses resulting from a workplace injury. The workers’ compensation system, though, covers only injuries caused by the carelessness or negligence of an employer or co-employee. If you have been injured on the job, and your injury was caused by an unrelated third party, you can file an action in court for any losses you have suffered. Such an action is known as a third party claim. If you have been injured at work and your injury was caused, in part or in whole, by the actions of a third party, we can help.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we have protected the rights of injured workers in Delaware and Pennsylvania for more than three decades. We take an aggressive approach to personal injury and work-related claims, taking the time to learn the details of your accident, as well as what you have lost. Attorney Hood will work closely with you throughout the process, keeping you informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options and chances of success, so that you can make good decisions about your future.

We offer a free initial consultation to all prospective clients. To set up an appointment, contact our office by e-mail or call us at (302) 777-1000.
