How to avoid serious injury in a car accident

When you get in your car every morning in the Wilmington area to drop your kids off to school and go to work, the last thing on your mind is a car accident. As common as they are, very few motorists think about them until they are faced with a collision that causes them serious injury. 

Medical malpractice award may not be fully payable

Medical malpractice verdicts in Delaware continue to compensate those who suffer injury during a medical procedure. There continue to be some very high awards from juries. Sometimes, however, the plaintiff does not have a right to receive the verdict amount and must accept a lower overall amount.

Understanding wrong site surgery and its causes

When you are scheduled for surgery, you trust the doctors who will perform the procedure are qualified and attentive. Nobody expects to emerge from surgery worse off than before, but unfortunately, this is sometimes the case. Wrong site surgery is one such example of a medical error that can have disastrous consequences for patients who happen to become victims.

Complications associated with C-sections

The number of cesarean sections performed in America has steadily increased in recent years, with AmericanPregnancy.org reporting that you now have a one-in-four chance of delivering your baby via this method. As is the case with any surgery, you assume a certain level of risk by going under the knife, but when you have a C-section, your baby also faces unique risks.

The underreporting of medical malpractice fatalities

Many people do not readily know the extent of how often medical malpractice is the actual cause of death. The fatal error may be by overt commission of an act that should not have been taken or, alternatively, by omission or failure to act when a particular action should have been taken.

The dangers of jumping to conclusions about a car accident

The recent tragic and nationally discussed accident involving tennis professional Venus Williams has put the spotlight on the catastrophic injuries that can result from automobile collisions. Delaware roadways also see their share of deadly accidents. It has also illustrated the reality that initial conclusions based on less than fully vetted facts and evidence may be way off base.

Negligence is only one part of the picture

If you have been injured by a distracted driver, that driver’s possible negligence is one aspect courts look at when determining damages. One way to bring such negligence to light is through phone records. For example, cellphones are the reason many drivers are distracted, and a phone record could show the driver was on a phone call or texting at the time of the accident.
