Delaware’s Injury And Medical Malpractice Leaders

Posts tagged "car accidents"

Distracted driving is a main cause of car accidents

These days, almost every person has a smart phone. While this advanced technology definitely adds convenience to life, it can also be incredibly dangerous when used in the wrong setting. Distracted driving has become a significant concern across the United States. According to recent statistics, it plays a role in almost 25 percent of fatal car accidents. The Delaware State Police have stepped up efforts to address the issue of distracted driving.

Car accidents: Motorcyclist in critical condition after crash

The state of Delaware is home to scenic roadways that many choose to experience behind the handle bars of a motorcycle. Going for a long ride on a motorcycle can definitely be fun and exhilarating. However, those who travel by motorcycle face different and unique challenges than those who are in passenger vehicles. Motorcyclists are totally exposed to outside elements so car accidents with motorcycles often end in very serious injury or death.

Treacherous winter roads can contribute to car accidents

Winter can be a wonderful time of year in Delaware. Fresh snow often envelopes landscapes like a subtle white blanket making for absolutely stunning scenery across the state. Winter can also be brutal. The fresh snow that makes for beautiful scenery can also make roadways treacherous for drivers. Heavy snow and ice can make roads virtually impassable, shut down entire cities and cause deadly car accidents.

Car accidents can happen despite safe driving habits

With so many vehicles sharing Delaware roadways these days, it's not a matter of if an accident will happen, but when. Statistically speaking, it is an almost certainty that most drivers will be involved in an accident at some point in their lives. Even if drivers are cautious behind wheel and practice safe driving habits, accidents may still happen. Tragically, car accidents are a leading cause of death and injury in the United States.

New guardrail on Delaware Route 1 may help prevent car accidents

Roadways in Delaware are becoming overcrowded and very hazardous. Many roadways across the state were built decades ago and were not designed to handle the high traffic volumes that have become the norm these days. In recent years, officials and police departments have taken many steps in an attempt to reduce car accidents and make busy highways safer for all motorists. For example, a cable guardrail is being installed along a portion of Delaware Route 1 where a tragic accident claimed the lives of five family members.

Car accidents involving pedestrians are increasing

Pedestrian safety has become a major concern in Delaware as roadways are becoming increasingly crowded. Pedestrians are basically everywhere these days and nearly every person is a pedestrian at some point during the day. For those who live in Delaware cities, walking is often the main source of transportation. These could be a few reasons why car accidents involving pedestrians are on the rise.

Car accidents: I-95 crash ends in loss of life

Although Delaware is small, the state boasts a convenient and easily accessible network of major highways. The vast majority of the time these highways see very high volumes of traffic. Interstate 95 in northern Delaware is one of the most heavily utilized roadways in the eastern United States. Traveling at high speeds on overcrowded roadways is a recipe for car accidents.

Over-crowded Delaware roads are leading to more car accidents

It goes without saying that no one wants to be involved in a crash. However, statistics say that most drivers will be involved in an accident at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, car accidents are increasing every year in Delaware since roadways across the state are over-crowded and constantly congested. These days, just going for a short drive can potentially result in a serious crash.

Car accidents with tractor-trailers are often fatal

As the United States economy continues to grow, there is a greater need to transport goods, materials and merchandise. The most common and efficient way to transport these things are commercial vehicles such as tractor-trailers. In Delaware and across the country, smaller passenger vehicles are forced to share crowded interstates and highways with these large commercial vehicles. Tragically, car accidents with massive tractor-trailers are often fatal.

Car accidents: Driver faces charges after crash with motorcycle

Motorcycles are a popular form of transportation in Delaware. They are smaller, take up less space and are more fuel efficient than passenger vehicles. However, due to their small size, motorcycles can be difficult for other motorists to spot, especially during low light conditions. Visibility issues are primary contributing factors in car accidents involving motorcycles. Tragically, these type of accidents often end in serious injury or death.
