Need an Injury Lawyer for a Personal Injury Case in Delaware?
Accidents happen in Delaware every day because let’s face it, our roads are never as safe as we would like them to be. Luckily, as far as auto accidents and many other types of traffic accidents are concerned, Delaware has seen a decreased likelihood of accidents over the past few years. DelDOT, Delaware’s Department of Transportation, has noted that fatal car accidents have dropped significantly in the past few years. We are happy to announce this with pride, but also want to point out that fatal and injury-causing accidents still happen every day in Delaware, which is why sometimes you need help on your side for the accidents you never expect.
Personal injury cases cannot usually be handled on your own. For instance, you may find that there are many difficulties when you are working on litigating your own personal injury matters, especially if you have sustained serious injuries that will leave a lasting impact on the rest of your life. When you are forced to make a case against another party who acted negligently after you have been injured, have to face big-name insurance companies and the other party’s attorney, you may believe that the odds are stacked against you. Fortunately, not all hope is lost.

Your Delaware personal injury case means everything to us, which is why we want you to gain experienced help you deserve in your case.
Cases We Handle
Auto Accidents: In Delaware, you have 2 years to file your accident claim before the stature of limitations runs out. This falls under Delaware Code Title 10, Section 8119. You don’t want to wait to file your claim because, once the clock stops ticking after you have realized your injuries, you won’t be able to file and you could lose out on financial compensation that you deserve. You want to be covered in your accident, as auto accidents tend to cause serious damages, such as medical costs that keep piling up, lost wages from missing time at work, emotional suffering, and so much more. We can help you determine liability for your accident by discovering the negligent party, such as somebody who chose to drink and drive or was texting and driving.
Bicycle Accidents: Bicycle accidents lead to serious injuries and fatalities every year. Some of the most common accidents are caused by drivers who choose to speed and fail to watch out for bicyclists. Some common accidents include the right hook, intersection-related accidents, or when drivers open their car door and send bicyclists into traffic. If a party was acting negligently and didn’t watch out for your safety, they owe you compensation for your injuries and you may be able to recover.
Bus Accidents: Buses fall under something known as common carrier law, which are businesses that have a duty of taking you from point A to point B for a fee. This means that they have a legal duty of care to watch out for your safety at all costs. If they fail to do so, they could be held liable for injuries that stem from your accident. Every year, bus drivers act negligently when they fail to correct a defective problem on the bus such as faulty brakes, or when they choose to drink and drive or text and drive. You may also discover that buses are sometimes owned by government agencies, which means that you may find you have shorter time limits when it comes to filing your claim.
Commercial Vehicle Accidents: Commercial vehicles are vehicles like flatbed trucks, vans, and many more vehicles that are owned by businesses. Commercial vehicles make our world go round, but they are also involved in many serious accidents every year in Delaware. You must be able to make the distinction between whether or not a commercial vehicle driver is an employee or an independent contractor. This could dictate if you are able to compensate for your case from a company or a driver.
DUI Accidents: Have you been injured in a DUI-related crash and you aren’t sure of where to turn when somebody has acted with outright negligence and endangered your life? DUI cases are very complicated at times, but liability is usually obvious. On top of that, your civil case could be dictated by the criminal case that results when a driver has broken the law.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrian accidents are unfortunately on the rise. Pedestrians are owed the highest duty of care by drivers due to the simple fact that they have no real protection from the elements. If you have sustained serious damages in one of these accidents, we are here for you to help you retain your rights. Speak to us as soon as possible if you have been injured by a driver who was acting negligently.
Truck Accidents: Large trucks are some of the heaviest vehicles on our roadways, which is why the accidents that result are almost always very serious and come with severe injuries. Truck drivers are also supposed to abide by regulations to prevent these accidents and keep you safe on our roads, such as following hours of service regulations and keeping proper documentation of maintenance to their vehicles. If you have been involved in one of these accidents, you may find that many parties could be liable – from the driver to the company, to the person who loaded the cargo onto the truck.
We can help you in your time of need if you have been injured in one of these accidents and many more. Some other common accidents we handle include motorcycle, ridesharing, and wrongful death accidents. Turn to an attorney who understands your rights when you have been injured in a Delaware accident.
