Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

Car accidents are a leading cause of death and injury in Delaware

Most Delaware residents are very aware that roadways across the state are constantly bombarded with traffic. Also, many of these roads were built decades ago and were not designed to handle such high volumes of traffic. When these factors are taken into account, its no wonder that serious and fatal car accidents are on the rise. Traffic related accidents are one of the leading causes of death and injury across the state.

Car accidents: Motorcyclist seriously injured in crash

Driving in Delaware these days is definitely dangerous. Just getting from point A to point B can be an adventure. Those who travel by motorcycle face even more risks than those in passenger vehicles. Motorcycles are much smaller than most vehicles so they can be harder for other drivers to see. This is a main cause of the vast majority of car accidents involving motorcycles.

Although helpful, precautions won't totally prevent car accidents

Motorists in Delaware are constantly at risk when traveling these days. To mitigate some of this risk, drivers should always practice safe driving habits, such as removing distractions, paying attention to surroundings and staying focused and alert. Unfortunately, no amount of preparation can totally prevent car accidents from happening.

Car accidents are stressful events that no person wants to face

Unfortunately, not all Delaware drivers are as cautious as they should be behind the wheel. In fact many drivers these days are downright careless, irresponsible and take driving for granted. Distracted and reckless drivers endanger the lives of all those around them. Distracted and/or impaired drivers account for thousands of car accidents every day across the United States.

Car accidents: Record numbers expected over the holiday

Summer is a time for outdoor activities, backyard barbecues and spending quality time with family. Summer is also a time for traveling to fun vacation destinations. For many, the July 4th weekend is the perfect time to take a vacation. This year, a record numbers of motorists are expected to be traveling. In an effort to reduce car accidents, the AAA is warning Delaware travelers to prepare for increased traffic on roadways over the holiday.

As traffic increases, so will car accidents involving pedestrians

Populations are on the rise in Delaware as more and more people move here to take advantage of the economic opportunities that are becoming abundant in this state. This is a good thing, but it also means there will be more traffic on roadways. Unfortunately, car accidents involving pedestrians will also increase. These types of accidents often turn out to be fatal since pedestrians are unprotected and exposed. Delaware State Police are investigating an accident on Newport Gap Pike that killed a pedestrian.

Car accidents: Tragic crash claims the life of a teenager

It seems that roadways across the state of Delaware are becoming more and more dangerous every year. Unfortunately, most Delaware drivers will experience car accidents at some point in their lives. A recent crash in Smyrna claimed the life of a high school student and injured several others.

Car accidents involving motorcycles are more likely to be fatal

Motorcycles are fun, but they can also be very dangerous. What makes motorcycles so dangerous are not the motorcycles themselves, but the other vehicles on the roadway. Roads across Delaware are constantly congested these days, increasing the odds for an accident. Motorcycles can be hard for other drivers to spot and, since motorcyclists are minimally protected, car accidents involving motorcycles are more likely to be fatal. 

Car accidents: 3-vehicle Delaware crash injures 8 people

Motor vehicles are a daily necessity for the vast majority of Delaware residents. However, due to the high volumes of traffic, car accidents are increasing on roadways across the state. Unfortunately, thousands of people in the United States lose their lives in traffic accidents every year. A recent crash in Milford resulted in serious injuries to three adults and five children.

Car accidents: Officers injured in accident with tractor-trailer

Today, the United States economy is growing exponentially. This prosperous economic growth means there is a greater need to transport goods and merchandise throughout the country. For many companies, the most efficient and cost-effective way to do this is by using tractor-trailers. Traveling on an interstate at high speeds beside these massive trucks can definitely be intimidating for motorists in smaller passengers vehicles. Tragically, car accidents involving tractor-trailers injure thousands every year in Delaware and across the country.
