Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

October 2019 Archives

Could a headache three days later be related to a collision?

The day that another driver ran a red light and slammed into the side of your vehicle in the intersection is likely a day in your life you'd rather forget. However, the injuries you suffered as a result of the other Delaware driver's negligence are no doubt a constant reminder that an otherwise uneventful day turned into an urgent situation. It is likely that once both vehicles came to a halt, you felt a bit shaken and scared but didn't think you suffered any serious injuries.

To prevent car accidents, stay focused behind the wheel

Driving these days can be incredibly risky and is a privilege that many Delaware residents take for granted. Far too often, drivers let things like phones and electronic devices distract them when they should be putting all their attention and focus on the road. With so many vehicles sharing roadways across the state, staying attentive behind the wheel has never been more important. Losing focus for just a split second is long enough to cause car accidents.

Birth injuries can turn childbirth into a tragedy

The United States is often considered the greatest country in the world. It is unfortunate, however, that a nation as advanced as the United States has one of the highest rates of birth injuries out of any developed nation. Every year, thousands of families in Delaware and across the country are faced with tragedy during what should be a joyous occasion. Injuries suffered at birth can affect a child for the rest of his or her life.

Woman awarded over $2 million after surgical errors caused injury

Thanks to advancements in medical technology, surgeries these days are becoming safer and less invasive. Thousands and thousands of patients undergo surgical procedures every day and across the country. Naturally, there is a risk involved with any surgery. Although some of the best surgeons and physicians in the world practice in the state of Delaware, these medical professionals can still make mistakes. Surgical errors kill and injure thousands of people every year.

Serious burns can occur in a car wreck

At the end of August 2019, a car accident in Hockessin, Delaware, became a scene straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster movie. According to news reports about the crash, an SUV forced a sedan off the roadway. The sedan then careened down a steep embankment and landed on its roof in a creek, all before bursting into flames. 

Car accidents involving pedestrians are more likely to be fatal

These days, pedestrians are literally everywhere in Delaware cities thanks to a booming economy. Walking is one of the most popular and economical forms of transportation, and it's a great way to stay in shape. However, walking near crowded roadways is incredibly dangerous. With pedestrians and vehicles in such close proximity, accidents will happen. Tragically, car accidents involving pedestrians are often fatal.

Car accidents are a common occurrence in Delaware

One of the few guarantees in life is that accidents are going to happen. Unfortunately, car accidents are on the rise across the state of Delaware as more and more vehicles utilize already overcrowded roadways. Traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury in the United States, and this is not likely to change anytime soon.

Knee ligament injuries can occur during car accidents

If you are an athlete or sports fan, you have probably heard about some common knee injuries. After all, a torn knee ligament can end an athletic career. You do not have to spend time on the field to sustain ligament damage, though. On the contrary, in a car crash, you may tear the ligaments in your knee. 

Car accidents: Distracted driving is a cause for concern

Venturing out on Delaware roadways these days is always a risky endeavour. Drivers never know what they may encounter, which is why it is always very important to stay focused when behind the wheel. Thanks to modern technology, motorists today face an abundance of distractions that can take focus away from the road. Distracted drivers are one of the main causes of car accidents across the United States today.
