Can I sue for additional compensation if I'm not satisfied with my settlement?

Faced with mounting medical bills, immediate and long-term recovery costs, property damage, and ongoing physical pain and emotional suffering, many accident victims are eager to receive a settlement that can help them heal and get their lives back to normal. However, in personal injury cases speed can be an enemy of justice. Accepting a settlement offer too quickly, or without consulting with a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury attorney, can result in you receiving a financial award that doesn't provide the compensation you need and deserve. Some accident victims may even assume that they can sue for additional compensation if their settlement doesn't meet their needs. Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Accident victims are almost always prohibited from suing the same person or party for the same issue, even if they feel they didn't receive an adequate or appropriate settlement amount. However, there are a few notable exceptions. Read on to learn more. More ›

Can I still bring a claim if the accident was my fault?

No. In Delaware, if your actions constitute more than 50% of the fault, then you will not be compensated. If your percentage of fault represents 50% of less of the total fault, you may be compensated, but your compensation is reduced by the percentage of your fault.

Can my employer fire me for filing a workers' compensation claim?

More than 4.1 million workers sustain serious work-related injuries each year in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

What compensation can I seek after an accident in Delaware?

After an accident or injury, victims often have many worries. Usually, their main concern is their health. Receiving proper medical care and therapies to support recovery should be the most important focus. However, the injuries and that treatment can leave an accident victim unable to work. Faced with a loss of income and mounting medical bills, victims are often worried about how they will meet their financial obligations. During what is already a difficult time, victims should not have to worry about whether they will be able to continue to receive medical care or wonder how they will support their families until they can return to work. To that end, the state of Delaware allows victims to file a personal injury claim against those responsible for their accident and resulting injuries. These claims seek compensation to help victims and their families to receive appropriate medical treatment and continue to live a stable, secure life. More ›

Can I handle a no-doubt liability claim on my own?

There are many personal injury cases where the plaintiff may have a difficult time proving the other party's negligence or fault, but there are some cases where the defendant is responsible for the accident without question. Known as "no-doubt" liability cases, these cases may seem simple and straightforward. However, accident victims shouldn't let the seeming simplicity of no-doubt liability cases lull them into a false sense of security and trick them into thinking they can handle the case themselves. While these cases may not have the dramatic twists and turns seen in courtroom dramas, they can require a fair amount of legal maneuvering. Additionally, there are clear benefits to having an experienced personal injury attorney by your side for these cases, and going it alone can have unintended consequences. More ›
