Will larger trucks result in more severe truck accidents?

Should tractor-trailers be allowed to be bigger? That question might make some Delaware residents uneasy, as Congress ponders transportation bills that could affect the literal impact of truck accidents. With Delaware being so close to some of the busiest sections of the East Coast, many local residents likely have to maneuver around tractor-trailers every day. While most of the time truck drivers operate their rigs safely, an 18-wheeler accident is rarely just a fender bender and can easily cause serious injuries.

Personal responsibility key to stopping distracted driving

Much like drunk driving, distracted driving is a life taker. In fact, multiple studies have shown that distracted driving -- and specifically texting while driving -- can be just as life-threatening as driving while drunk.

Can traumatic brain injury put someone in a coma?

With fall just around the corner, many local Delaware families are likely gearing up for football season. Whether it's watching pro football or college football on television, or watching one's children play in youth sports, fall can be an exciting time for many fans. Still, football has brought attention to the dangers of head injuries. Whether someone is in a sports-related accident, a car accident or any other type of jarring incident, traumatic brain injury may result.

Wrongful death action offers compensation for unexpected loss

One of the worst things any person can go through is the loss of a loved one at the hands of another. Even when the other person's involvement in the death is entirely accidental, it can be enormously difficult to come to terms with a shocking, unanticipated loss. In cases of fatal accidents, as tough as it may be, it can be ultimately beneficial to hold a negligent party accountable for their irresponsible actions or neglect.

Spinal cord injuries may be traumatic or non-traumatic

Whenever a Wilmington resident gets into an accident of some sort, the first question many ask is, "is the person okay?" Finding out if an accident victim has serious injuries is one of the most important elements of any post-accident procedure. When these injuries are serious, they often need immediate treatment and may require long-term medical care. Whether it's a car accident, a workplace accident, a sporting incident or some other type of situation, resulting spinal cord injuries can change a person's life forever.
