What to Consider if a Bicyclist Is Struck by a Vehicle in a Bike Lane

During these warm summer months, riding bicycles can provide a wonderful way to get from Point A to Point B as well as offer you a chance to enjoy the warm outdoors and the beauty of Delaware’s coastal air.

What to Consider if You Have Been Hit by a Vehicle along the Side of a Highway

Without the highways connecting our country, we would definitely have a difficult time organizing a simple drive to work or a road trip. In many cases, the interstates and state routes are some of the most effective means of getting from point A to point B, but the high speed posted on these roadways can also prove to be problematic factors.

In some tragic cases, some people may be forced to pull to the side of the road to fix their vehicle, only to be struck by...

If You Were a Passenger Injured in a Single-Vehicle DUI Accident

Partying with friends is a wonderful escape after a long difficult work week, but the fact of the matter is that booze can always come with a price. After downing one too many drinks or consuming illegal drugs, drivers will lose all sense of control, instantly transforming your average vehicle into a death trap.

What to Consider if You Have Been Bitten by an Aggressive Dog

Besides cats, dogs are some of the most popular pets in our country, and, after just one look at these amazing animals, it’s easy to see why. With their big brown (or blue) eyes, wagging tails, and cheerful personalities, these canines have pretty much become the glue of families and are often treated like equals in lines of work (just ask the owners of Newfoundland and German Shepherd rescue dogs). While they might be friendly, though, dogs are still animals and can inflict tremendous damage on their victims, resulting in tragic dog bite cases. If you have been bitten by...
