From these accidents, a total of 8,255 people were hurt and 139 lost their lives. Being a victim of a car accident in Delaware can be a life-altering experience. Victims may suffer serious injuries that can linger for weeks or months following the collision. The injuries are painful and can even be permanent in nature.
Following a Delaware car accident, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Injuries tend to worsen when they are not properly addressed right away. You could be jeopardizing your future and your recovery without prompt and effective medical attention. In some cases, a car accident injury may not even become apparent until long after the crash has happened. The sooner you seek treatment, the better your chances of a full recovery.
