Delaware Car Accidents
Car accidents in Delaware take place multiple times every day. While not all collisions will result in injuries, many of them will. Last year, more than 7,000 motorists were injured in crashes that took place throughout our state. Many of these injured victims were hurt because of the actions of negligent drivers. Speeding, reckless driving, impairment, and distraction are all frequent causes of Delaware car accidents. Each accident must be carefully investigated by authorities in order to determine the cause and which driver should be held responsible.
A Delaware car accident can certainly be a life-altering experience. This includes expensive medical treatment and the possible inability to work due to injuries caused by the crash. If you are in this situation, you may be questioning your future and whether you will ever be able to resume the life that you once enjoyed before the crash. Fortunately, injured victims may have a remedy available.
Under Delaware law, car accident victims have certain valuable legal rights. It is very important to consult with an attorney immediately following the crash in order to determine the rights that you might have.
