Car Accidents in Delaware
Each day, multiple people will be hurt when they are involved in a Delaware car accident. Unfortunately, this happens more often than we would like to think. Last year, more than 8,000 motorists were hurt in car accidents that occurred across our state. Many of these collisions could have been prevented through the use of ordinary caution by one or more of those parties involved. Unfortunately, negligent driving is quite common in Delaware and accounts for more than 70% of all total reported crashes. This means that one or more motorists are normally responsible for the collision.
Under Delaware law, car accident victims can pursue their recovery. If you were hurt in a car accident in Wilmington or surrounding areas, you should make sure that you speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. Having an attorney by your side can make the difference between a poor settlement and an adequate one.
