Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

October 2018 Archives

Car accidents with motorcycles can be deadly

Motorcycles can be a fun and economical form of transportation. However, those who travel by motorcycle face unique dangers as roadways across Delaware are often crowded and congested. Being visible to other drivers can be a concern for motorcyclists, since motorcycles are usually more difficult to see than most other vehicles. Also, those who travel by motorcycle are completely exposed, so car accidents involving motorcycles are more likely to result in serious injury or death.

Know your space heater safety tips before the cold season starts

With winter fast approaching, you may soon be ready to bring out your space heater, or you could be shopping for a new one. Space heaters are useful gadgets for cost-effectively heating a small area, such as the bathroom or your favorite corner of the living room. However, as you and other Delaware residents should know, a space heater can also be extremely dangerous if it is defective or used incorrectly.

Family awarded over $50 million for birth injuries

Birth is a very fragile and delicate time in which great care is required. Any missed step or deviation from the accepted standard of care can result in birth injuries that will affect the child for the rest of his or her life. It's a shame when negligent care robs Delaware parents of the joy typically associated with childbirth. Unfortunately, this is a scenario that happens far too often across the United States.

Car accidents: Man faces serious charges after crash

It is common knowledge that driving while under the influence of alcohol is one of the most dangerous things a person can do. While intoxicated, motor skills are greatly impaired and the simplest tasks become extremely difficult. Those who get behind the wheel while intoxicated risk the lives of all those around them and car accidents become almost a guarantee. A Delaware man faces several charges after he caused an accident that injured several people, including two children.

Surgical errors: Couple files claim after alleged negligence

There is always risk involved with any surgical procedure. No matter how minor or routine the procedure may be, any mistake made by surgeons and physicians during surgery can have drastic effects on patients. The state of Delaware requires health care professionals to complete years of academic and on-the-job training in order to legally treat patients. However, no amount of training can totally prevent surgical errors.

Be aware of drowsy driving risks during holiday travel season

If you are like countless others in Delaware and elsewhere, you will be driving out of town for the holidays. When it comes to holiday travel, bad weather is not the only thing you need to be watchful for. Drowsy driving is a pervasive problem across the United States, and it may be more serious than you think.

Fatal car accidents are on the rise across Delaware

Roadways across the state of Delaware are overcrowded and constantly congested. Navigating these crowded roads may be the most dangerous daily task in the lives of most Delaware citizens. Although updated traffic laws and increased safety measures have made traveling somewhat safer, car accidents are still happening at an alarming rate. Recently, an accident in Milford claimed the life of a woman and injured several others.

Birth injuries can turn a joyful event into a tragedy

The moment of birth is the most fragile time in a person's life. Childbirth is a process that must be handled with extreme care. Any deviation from the acceptable level of care can result in birth injuries that could affect a child for the rest of his or her life. Understandably, this is a nightmarish scenario for parents in Delaware and around the country.

Car accidents involving drunk drivers injure thousands every year

Despite stringent traffic laws and increased public awareness campaigns, driving while under the influence of alcohol continues to be a big problem on roadways in Delaware and across the country. Statistics indicate that almost 29 people are killed every day in the United States due to car accidents with drunk drivers. Recently, a Millsboro man was hit with serious charges after a crash that injured two people.
