Seaford Personal Injury Lawyers

Standing Up for Victims After Serious Accidents in Seaford, DE

After a serious accident, many victims remain in shock and unsure how to handle the legal aspects of the incident that rendered them injured or disabled. By hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer, you gain a strong voice in your corner to fight for your rights and ensure that you and your loved ones receive the care and compensation you need to heal. A diverse array of accidents due to negligence fall under the umbrella of personal injury law including medical errors during surgical procedures, an elderly relative who develops health issues because of nursing home abuse, or a rider sustaining catastrophic injuries while riding a motorcycle.

Tough decisions must be made promptly when these types of accidents occur, so do not delay in seeking out an experienced attorney who will stand beside you and offer you guidance. At Rhoades & Morrow, our legal team will welcome you warmly and thoroughly investigate your case to plan a course of action that is suitable for you. We know that your focus should be on recovering from your physical injuries while our focus will be on obtaining the appropriate compensation and/or benefits to pay for medical expenses so that you remain solvent.

Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle

We dedicate our skills to helping those injured in accidents caused by negligence including, but not limited to the following personal injury cases:

  • Auto Accidents – Negligence factors into many motor vehicle accidents and may lead to serious injuries or even fatalities for victims. Examples of negligence include texting while driving, drunk driving, drowsy driving, speeding, and other traffic violations.

  • Catastrophic Injury – Life-changing personal injuries that may result from an automobile accident, workplace incident, or medical malpractice issue require a Seaford personal injury attorney who will articulate what you need to cover expenses and adjust to your new lifestyle.

  • Defective Products – Defective drugs, faulty products, or other items that pose harm to users may give rise to a valid personal injury claim. Our skilled legal team will investigate to determine if a manufacturing defect, design defect, or company’s failure to provide adequate warning was a factor in the harm you suffered.

  • Medical Malpractice – We trust and rely upon medical professionals to make the right decisions when we develop an illness or injury that needs appropriate and effective treatment. Unfortunately, mistakes made before, during, or after a procedure may lead to more significant health issues.

  • Motorcycle Accidents – The open nature of a motorcycle means that riders may be more vulnerable when an accident with another vehicle occurs. Motorcyclists may suffer a range of injuries that could adversely affect their ability to earn an income or lead an independent life.

  • Nursing Home Abuse – Elderly relatives who reside in a nursing home may not be able to effectively communicate the neglect and abuse they may be experiencing. Our personal injury attorneys will provide a voice for them after a thorough investigation of the claims.

  • Pedestrian Accidents – Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to driver negligence and recklessness. Even at low speeds, a pedestrian accident can result in devastating injuries including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), leg injuries, and paralysis.

  • Bicycle Accidents – If you or your child was hit by a car while riding a bicycle and sustained injuries, we will represent you and ensure your rights are protected.

  • Premises Liability – It is the responsibility of the property or business owners to keep their property and the area surrounding it free from slick surfaces or dilapidated conditions that could harm a visitor or worker. Victims of slip and fall accidents and those who have been harmed by violence due to lack of adequate security may be entitled to fair compensation.

  • Truck Accidents – Truckers work under sometimes harsh conditions, but that does not mean that the trucking company or driver is not accountable when an accident caused by negligence leaves you or a member of your family hurt.

  • Work Injuries – Workplace accidents involve more legal intricacies than other incidents, especially when Workers’ Compensation benefits are at stake. Your employer or a third party may be hesitant to pay the compensation that is rightfully yours when you are injured on the job; a seasoned work injury lawyer can expedite the process and ensure you receive the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.

  • Wrongful Death – Fatalities due to negligence not only alter the lives of the victim but the loved ones who are left behind, too. If someone you love was fatally injured by a negligent party, we will offer guidance in filing a wrongful death claim.

Types of Compensation a Personal Injury Victim Could Receive in Delaware

In a personal injury claim, the victim may be entitled to various types of compensation depending on the circumstances of their case. Some common types of compensation that a personal injury victim may receive in Delaware include:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes all medical bills related to the injuries suffered in the accident, such as hospital stays, surgeries, medication, physical therapy, and more. It may also include future medical expenses that are necessary for the victim’s recovery.

  • Lost Wages: If the accident resulted in the victim being unable to work, they may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This can include both current and future lost wages if the injuries have long-term effects on their ability to work.

  • Pain and Suffering: This type of compensation is meant to cover the physical and emotional pain and suffering endured by the victim due to their injuries. It can be difficult to assign a monetary value to this type of damage, but an experienced personal injury attorney can help determine a fair amount.

  • Property Damage: If any property was damaged in the accident, such as a car or personal belongings, the victim may be entitled to compensation for the cost of repairs or replacement.
