How do I start determining liability of property owner?

With the back-to-school season upon many residents of Wilmington, many may be either going out shopping in the near future or moving into a new rental unit. In any event, a dangerous property condition can wreak havoc on a person's plans for the rest of the year. Sometimes a shopping trip results in a seemingly simple slip-and-fall accident, only for the accident victim to suffer lasting injury later on. However, dangerous property conditions can also result in wrongful death situations where the victim's family is likely to need extensive legal help.

Nighttime driving and teens' car accident risks

In the middle of summer, it's not unusual for teenagers to be staying up later, socializing more with friends and driving more during the nighttime hours. Driving after the sun goes down, though, is something that even experienced drivers know brings a special set of challenges. For inexperienced drivers, though, the darkness can be quite difficult to navigate safely and nighttime car accidents are an unfortunate presence in Delaware and elsewhere.

A look at the impact of brain injuries

There is a significant amount of information to be aware of when facing a traumatic brain injury (TBI) which can be overwhelming for victims and family members struggling during an already difficult time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that there are an estimated 2.5 million traumatic brain injuries each year that lead to emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths. In addition, TBIs can lead to disability and significant future challenges.

Hope and reassurance for spinal cord injury sufferers

It probably comes as no surprise to many residents in Delaware that long-term medical care tends to be exorbitantly expensive. Even seeing a doctor for a simple check up can result in a large medical bill; however, for those with injuries to their spinal cord, their financial future can be incredibly uncertain. A skilled spinal cord injury attorney can help an accident victim reclaim their financial footing by obtaining compensation for damages.

What are some of the more common causes behind truck accidents?

Residents of Delaware who routinely travel on the state's highways and byways are probably accustomed to sharing the road with large trucks and other massive vehicles, ranging from buses to snow plows and beyond. Typically, drivers exercise a bit more caution around these huge vehicles for obvious reasons: getting into a wreck with one of these conveyances is often extremely catastrophic. However, when it comes to truck accidents in general, many question what causes them.
