Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle

We have the background, knowledge, and insight to represent you and protect your rights, no matter what type of accident or injury you have suffered. Whether you were injured in a car accident, a slip and fall, an assault, or any other kind of injury, we bring the resources you need to successfully represent your case. We have experience handling all types of injuries, including – but not limited to – the following:

Catastrophic Injuries

Spinal cord injuries, severe burns, organ damage, eye injuries, multiple bone fractures, neck injuries, back injuries, paralysis, accidental amputations – all of these injuries may come with exorbitant medical costs and a long road to recovery. Some may result in permanent disability.

Defective or Dangerous Products

Vehicles, work equipment, toys, prescribed drugs, medical devices, and more can all be defective or dangerous.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors and hospital staff have a responsibility to maintain a reasonable standard of care towards patients. When they fail in that duty, we hold them accountable with a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Any type of motor vehicle accident – including a car accident, bus accident, or motorcycle accident – can cause injuries and suffering. We will advocate for your financial recovery.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

Trusting your loved one’s care to a care facility can be a worrisome thing. When your loved one is injured by those you trusted, it can be traumatic. Our qualified legal team will thoroughly investigate your legal claims to determine who is responsible for the harm your loved one has suffered.

Premises Liability Claims

Property owners have a duty to keep their premises safe and free of foreseeable hazards. Visitors who are injured in a slip and fall accident caused by negligence, or have become a victim of crime due to inadequate security on the premises may be entitled to compensation.

Truck Accidents

After working long hours on the road, truck drivers often have a higher propensity for causing accidents. Truck accidents can have a grave impact on victims.

Workers’ Compensation

Millions of Americans are injured on the job every year. When you have been hurt in a workplace accident or diagnosed with an occupational illness, our Workers’ Compensation lawyers fight to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law.

Wrongful Death

When you lose a loved one to tragic circumstances – especially when the loss is due to someone else’s negligence – it can be difficult to live with. Not only must you deal with the pain and suffering that comes with the loss of that person’s presence, but you may also have a wide range of costs to deal with. We offer compassionate guidance for your loss as we work to protect your family’s financial security.

Understanding Compensatory Damages in Personal Injury Cases

When you are injured due to someone else’s negligence in Delaware, the law allows you to seek financial compensation for a variety of damages. These compensatory damages are designed to make you whole again, to the extent that money can do so, by covering both economic and non-economic losses related to your injury.

Economic damages are tangible losses that have a specific dollar amount attached to them. Examples include:

  • Medical Expenses: From emergency room visits to ongoing care, the costs associated with treating your injuries can be recovered. This includes both current and future medical bills.

  • Lost Wages: If your injuries prevent you from working, you may be compensated for the wages you would have earned during that time. This includes lost earning capacity if your injuries impact your ability to earn in the future.

  • Rehabilitation Costs: Many injuries require extensive physical therapy or other forms of rehabilitation, the costs of which can be included in your personal injury claim.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, cover the intangible losses that don’t have a specific dollar value but significantly impact your quality of life, such as:

  • Pain and Suffering: This accounts for the physical pain and emotional distress you’ve endured because of the injury.

  • Loss of Consortium: If your injuries affect your relationship with your spouse, you may receive damages for loss of companionship.

  • Emotional Distress: Injuries can also lead to psychological issues such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD, for which you may seek compensation.

Additionally, in rare cases where the conduct was particularly egregious, the court may award punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages which are intended to make the victim whole, punitive damages are meant to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar future conduct.

To ensure that you effectively navigate the complexities of claiming these damages, Rhoades and Morrow will leverage our knowledge and experience to help you understand the full scope of compensation you’re entitled to.
