Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Our attorneys have a record of success pursuing claims in the following areas:

  • Car Accidents – Although car accidents are increasingly common, the factors causing them are more unique. Factors such as intoxicated driving, distracted driving, and drowsy driving all contribute to accidents involving negligence.
  • Catastrophic Injury – If you endured a catastrophic injury at the hands of a negligent party during a motor vehicle or work accident, we will ensure you are being fairly compensated.
  • Defective Products – Many product liability cases arise from: manufacturing defects, faulty design, or failure to provide adequate warnings about the product. Our skilled attorneys will assist you in filing a claim when appropriate.
  • Motorcycle Accidents – Due to the lack of protective equipment on a bike, motorcyclists are at high risk for developing serious injuries or worse in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent driver.
  • Nursing Home Abuse – Nursing home abuse and negligence is rising to disturbing levels. If your loved one suffers due to abuse or neglect, we will be their voice, and pursue justice and compensation for the harm they have suffered, including unexplained injuries, bed sores, and other evidence of inadequate care.  
  • Pedestrian and Bike Accidents – Although pedestrians and bicyclists are protected by state traffic laws, oftentimes motorists fail to recognize this or use caution around them, which may result in life-threatening injuries.
  • Premises Liability – Slip and fall accidents present issues for all ages, but especially for seniors. If you fell due to the negligence of a property or business owner who failed to clean up a spill or fix a dilapidated staircase or walkway, or failed to provide adequate security on the premises, we can help.
  • Truck Accidents – When you are involved in a truck accident, it is critical to hire an experienced lawyer to negotiate your case. Truck drivers and the companies they work for are sure to be represented by teams of expensive attorneys to help them avoid litigation. If a negligent truck driver caused you harm, we will fight to hold the responsible parties accountable and recover maximum compensation for you and your loved ones.
  • Work Injuries – With our extensive experience in Delaware Workers’ Compensation law, we will obtain the full benefits to which you are entitled. If you have filed a Workers’ Compensation claim, only to be denied by your employer, we will fight for your rights.
  • Wrongful Death – Fatal accidents caused by another’s negligence not only bring emotional upheaval but financial complications as well. Let us help you file a claim against the responsible party, so that you can begin to heal after your loved one’s untimely passing.

Common Injuries Sustained in Personal Injury Accidents

Personal injury accidents can lead to a wide variety of injuries, ranging from minor to life-threatening. The nature and severity of these injuries often depend on the type of accident and the circumstances involved. In Delaware, the most common injuries people sustain due to another’s negligence include those that require immediate and sometimes long-term medical attention.

Common injuries include:

  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries: Often resulting from car accidents, these injuries can cause chronic pain and limited mobility.
  • Broken Bones: Fractures are common in slip and fall incidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): These are prevalent in serious motor vehicle and work accidents and can lead to long-term cognitive and physical disabilities.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Such injuries may result in partial or complete paralysis, significantly impacting the victim’s quality of life.
  • Internal Injuries: Damage to internal organs often occurs in severe accidents and may require invasive surgeries.
  • Cuts and Lacerations: These can range from minor to severe and can result in infections and significant scarring.
  • Burns: Common in cases involving defective products or work accidents, burns can be extremely painful and may lead to extensive medical treatments and rehabilitation.

Seeking medical attention immediately after an accident is crucial, even if you do not initially feel injured. Some injuries may not present symptoms right away, and delaying medical treatment can lead to more severe complications.

How an Experienced Attorney Can Help After a Personal Injury Accident

After an accident caused by another’s negligence, a personal injury lawyer can provide invaluable support and guidance throughout the entire legal process. They can help you understand your rights under Delaware law and ensure that you receive fair compensation for your injuries.

  • Calculate Damages: Assess both current and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages to determine the rightful compensation.
  • Negotiate with Insurers: Engage with insurance companies on your behalf to negotiate settlements that reflect the true extent of your injuries and losses.
