Schuster Jachetti LLP: Fighting For Justice
Each year, thousands of residents sustain serious injuries due to the negligence of others. Under the law, negligence occurs when one person or group fails to act in a manner that is considered reasonable and another person is hurt as a result. Our lawyers fight aggressively to ensure that those who are guilty of negligence pay for the damage they have caused our clients.
An example of negligence would be if a driver is texting behind the wheel and they hit another vehicle. The driver is considered negligent because they know that they should be paying attention to the road and their surroundings, not looking at their phone.
In many instances, victims of negligence don’t realize that they have the right to pursue legal action, which is why it is always important to consult an attorney after you’ve sustained an injury. Legal action is taken through filing a civil lawsuit known as a personal injury lawsuit. These lawsuits are completely separate from any criminal charges that have been filed.
Our legal team works with clients on cases involving:
Drunk drivers, drivers who are texting or talking on the phone, distracted drivers, and even defective auto parts can all easy cause a massive collision that can seriously hurt or claim the life of a victim. Our firm has helped those who have been hurt in car, bus, and truck accidents.
It’s no secret that motorcycle riders are much more exposed than passengers in a car. When an accident occurs, there is nothing but clothing and a helmet to protect the rider. Sadly, accidents happen with shocking frequency in Delaware.
Being sick is never fun but Delaware residents trust that the medical professionals they seek care from have their best interests at heart. While this may be true, even the best medical professionals make mistakes. Common examples of medical malpractice include:
- Prescription Error
- Surgical Mistake
- Anesthesia Error
- Birth Injury
It can be difficult to determine if malpractice took place which is why you should consult with an attorney if you believe a medical professionals care may have caused you harm.
According to the law, property owners must take every reasonable step to protect visitors to their property. Yet often, hazards that could cause a slip and fall accident are ignored. Slip and fall hazards often include:
- Broken Sidewalks
- Ice and Snow
- Spilled Liquids
- Broken Steps and Handrails
- Loose Floorboards and Carpeting
- Unsecured Wires
If you were injured in a slip and fall accident contact our legal team as quickly as possible so that evidence can be preserved.
Our Law Firm Also Helps Clients With Workers’ Compensation Claims
In addition to various personal injury cases, our law firm also helps with workers’ compensation claims. Our lawyers know the common mistakes that are often made on the initial claim that can result in a denial. We are happy to help with both initial claims and appeals.
How Quickly Must A Personal Injury Lawsuit Be Filed?
Each form of personal injury claim has a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations means that a claim must be filed within a certain period of time in order to be valid. This is why it’s so important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as you suspect that negligence may have resulted in harm to you or a loved one.
