Car Accidents in Delaware
A car accident in Delaware takes place about once every 18 minutes. Last year, about 30,000 crashes were reported on our state’s roadways, and approximately 8,000 of these resulted in injuries for one or more of the motorists involved. Driving can sometimes seem like a very routine activity that is just part of our day-to-day life. Motorists must keep in mind, however, that there are always risks each time they step into a vehicle. Defensive driving and awareness of your surroundings can go a long way toward preventing a serious crash from occurring.
Sometimes, however, an accident is simply not avoidable. Negligent and careless driving can place even cautious motorists at risk of harm. Due to the prevalence of reckless drivers on Delaware’s roadways, the odds of being involved in a crash are always present. To make matters worse, about 30% of these accidents will end with injuries, with many injuries being serious or catastrophic in nature.
