An injury can turn your life upside down in an instant. Depending on the severity of your injury, you may face a long road to recovery. Along that road, you will have to deal with the exorbitant costs of getting well. Or, worse, you may have to come to terms with a potentially lifelong affliction from which you may never recover. If you have experienced the worst-case scenario, you may be grieving over a loved one who suffered a life-ending injury.

What is Personal Injury Law?

In Delaware, personal injury lawsuits are based on a legal theory known as negligence. Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care in a situation, resulting in harm or damage. A successful personal injury claim requires evidence that the defendant had a duty of care to the plaintiff and failed to uphold that duty.

To prove negligence, you must show four elements:

  • Duty – the defendant had a legal duty to act with reasonable care

  • Breach of Duty – the defendant failed to act in accordance with that duty

  • Cause – the breach of duty was the cause of your injury or losses

  • Damages – you suffered damages due to the breach of duty

To determine the strength of a personal injury lawsuit, you should consult an experienced personal injury lawyer. The Delaware personal injury lawyers at Rhoades & Morrow have the knowledge and resources to help you build a strong case. Call for a free consultation today!


Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

A personal injury occurs when a person has suffered physical, emotional, and/or psychological injuries as the result of another person’s negligence. Personal injury may fall into any of the following categories:

Medical Malpractice

This may include a physician’s failure to diagnose or properly treat a serious illness, failure to disclose important information about an illness, botched surgery, and more.

Birth Injury

An injury that is suffered before, during, or after delivery can have a lifelong impact on the child and on the family.

Auto Accidents

Car accidents are the cause of serious injuries and deaths every day. A serious auto accident may also involve a truck, bus, train, motorcycle, or when a pedestrian is struck.

Premises Liability

This can include any injury that occurs on private, municipal, or business-owned property. Common premises liability cases involve slip and fall or trip and fall accidents, dog bites, swimming pool injuries, and other types of negligent maintenance.

Work Injury

In addition to Workers’ Compensation, you may be entitled to third-party benefits for your injury. This is most common in construction accident cases.

Catastrophic Injuries

These are injuries that result in permanent disability. It could be the result of a car accident, a work injury, or an assault.

Nursing Home Abuse

When you trust your loved one’s care to a facility, and that person is injured, neglected, or abused, it can be heart-wrenching. Filing a lawsuit against a perpetrator or their employer is one way to hold them accountable for their actions.

Defective Products

We have filed personal injury claims against manufacturers, corporations, and distributors whose products have caused harm.

Wrongful Death

We are committed to seeking justice for those who have suffered the tragic death of a loved one due to another person’s dangerous behavior.


You Deserve Compensation For Someone Else’s Negligence

If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses. Depending on the facts of your case, damages can include:

  • Medical expenses related to treating your injury

  • Lost wages or loss of earning capacity

  • Pain and suffering, emotional distress, and trauma

  • Loss of consortium (injuries preventing parties from enjoying companionship)
