Advice for How to Handle a Slip and Fall Accident

When people go out for work, visit a loved one, or run errands, the last thing they probably anticipate is slipping or tripping and then falling onto the ground. The injuries of hitting the floor or pavement can do serious damage on the human body. A person may suffer from mild cuts and bruises, to more critical conditions like a traumatic brain injury. In some cases, an individual or entity may have had an influence in the accident happening. So, those who have slipped and fallen may want to know what their options are in seeking compensation from the party at-fault for their injuries, damages and other losses.

Many auto accidents may be the result of higher speed limits

Several decades ago, the speed limit on most highways and interstates was 55 mph. In comparison to today's interstate speed limits averaging from 70 to 80 mph, that may seem very slow to many Delware drivers. However, there is evidence that suggests that the slow increase in speed limits across the country over the last few decades is directly related to a rise in the number of serious or fatal auto accidents. 

Car accidents involving cyclists often result in serious injuries

When a moving vehicle collides with a bicycle, it often results in serious or painful injuries. People on bikes are completely vulnerable to the force, size and weight of any type of vehicle, even when wearing helmets and other types of protective gear. A recent motor vehicle collision with a Delaware cyclist illustrates how dangerous these car accidents can be. 

Do we really need to make a big deal bout a dent?

It's a scenario nearly as old as the automobile itself: A fender-bender occurs and the drivers of the vehicles step out to take a look at the damage. It appears that everyone is physically okay, so the conversation quickly turns to the condition of the vehicles involved in the mishap.
