Were You Injured In An Accident In Georgetown, DE? Our Law Firm Can Help
Each year, hundreds of the 7,000 residents of Georgetown, DE are involved in accidents that cause serious harm. In almost every case, negligence caused the accident, which could have been prevented if the responsible party had made different decisions.
Negligence, under the law, occurs when one party fails to take reasonable steps to ensure that others are protected from harm. For example, if a store owner is made aware that a liquid has been spilled and they fail to clean it up, then a visitor slips on that liquid and is hurt, the store owner has been negligent.
When negligence occurs, those who sustain an injury have the legal right to fight for compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. These lawsuits can provide full compensation for both past and future losses such as medical bills, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional suffering.

Delaware Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For Justice
When compensation is granted in a personal injury lawsuit, the compensation comes through either a settlement or a successful court verdict.
Settlements are the most common way to obtain compensation and in fact, the majority of lawsuits conclude with one of these agreements. A settlement must be carefully negotiated to ensure that the plaintiff is recovering an appropriate amount and it’s typical for negotiations to last for months. If an agreement can’t be reached, that’s when the case will go to court.
It’s important to work closely with an attorney who has trial experience and who can also prepare you for your courtroom experience. Going to trial and negotiating a settlement are two very different things and it’s important to have experience on your side when making an argument before a judge and jury.
Law Firm Helping Delaware Resident Recover The Maximum Amount Possible
For more than three decades our legal team has pushed for the maximum amount in every case. The total amount that a plaintiff may recover is based on their actual losses. For example, if a plaintiff requires an estimated $1,000,000 in medical care and will lose another 3,000,000 in income over their lifetime, they should be awarded at least $4,000,000 if not more.
Additional compensation may be provided for the physical and emotional trauma that has been experienced by the accident victim.

Our legal team doesn’t just handle personal injury lawsuits, we also help clients with workers’ compensation claims.
In theory, workers’ compensation should be easy. If an employee is hurt on the job, they submit a claim and have their medical bills and a fraction of lost wages covered by the insurance. Yet over and over again, workers’ compensation claims are denied and for simple mistakes.
Our legal team is fully aware of the common mistakes that are made on workers’ compensation forms. We can help with both initial claims and appeals. If you are pursuing an appeal, our attorneys can collect the necessary evidence to prove that your claim is valid and can present that evidence in court.
