Car Accidents in Delaware
Delaware’s streets and highways can be dangerous places for motorists. While driving often feels like a routine activity that we take for granted, all it takes is a split second for a serious collision to affect anyone on the roadway. Last year, nearly 8,000 victims were hurt in Delaware car accidents, and many of these injured motorists were not at fault in the accident. Car accidents in Delaware are frequently caused by careless drivers who were violating a traffic law at the time of the accident.
