Delaware Car Accidents
When we get into a vehicle, we often take for granted many of the risks that are involved. Due to negligent drivers, there is always a chance that an accident can take place. According to the Delaware Department of Transportation, approximately 30,000 car accidents took place last year in our state. These collisions happened on busy highways, city streets, and quiet residential areas. An accident can occur at any time and can affect the lives of many people involved.
