Car Accidents in Delaware
A Delaware car accident can take place in a split second. One minute you can be driving down the road minding your own business and the next you can find yourself suffering from serious and painful injuries.

All it takes is a single instance of bad driving behavior to set off a series of events that can have major consequences.
