Car Accidents in Delaware
Delaware’s streets and highways can be dangerous places for drivers and passengers alike. Thousands of car accidents are reported across our state every year. About one-third of these collisions will result in injuries to at least one of the individuals involved. In many instances, the injured victim will be hurt through no fault of their own. This often occurs when another driver has acted in a negligent and reckless manner, thus leading to an accident.
If you have been hurt in a collision that was not your fault, you should speak with an experienced car accident attorney right away. Many people make the mistake of speaking with the insurance company first. In this scenario, the adjuster calls the injured party and obtains a recorded statement from them. This statement can then be used against you when determining the value of your claim. The adjuster will then make an offer to settle the case. While the offer may seem attractive at first, it will often not compensate you for the true extent of your injuries and pain and suffering. Instead of speaking with the insurance company, you should consult with an attorney who can help you through this time.
