Car accidents can happen in an instant. One moment you are fine and healthy, and the next moment in a hospital with serious injuries. Unfortunately, car accidents are sometimes fatal. If you or someone you love needs help proving liability or damages in a car accident case involving serious or fatal injuries, the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer can make the decisive difference in maximizing the amount of your financial recovery.
In 2018, Delaware state reported 28,863 traffic accidents, and approximately 28% of the accidents resulted in injury or death. Moreover, there were 132 deaths in Delaware in 2019 resulting from a car accident. Some common types of auto accident injuries include:
- Back and neck injuries, including whiplash and neck strain
- Brain and head injuries, including concussion
- Spinal cord damage
- Facial injuries
- Psychological trauma
A thorough familiarity with the provisions of Delaware auto insurance law is essential to fully protect clients’ interests. In many cases, lost income benefits or reimbursement for therapeutic and rehabilitative expenses are cut off too early, making it necessary to proceed against one’s own insurer while at the same time pursuing the driver at fault for negligence damages. In far too many cases, a driver who was distracted while texting or using a cell phone caused the accident.

Well-known and respected by their colleagues in the legal profession, attorneys Bruce Hudson and Josh Inkell will work to achieve justice for you and your family.
As an active member and 2-term past president of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association, Bruce Hudson has been intensely involved with the legislative aspects of our state’s law concerning auto insurance coverage and accident claims. He was instrumental in the repeal of the 60-year old automobile guest statute which precluded injured passengers from recovery against negligent drivers. He also wrote and was instrumental in passage of the prejudgment interest statute which reduces the incentive for insurance companies to engage in protracted litigation.

We approach each case ethically, honorably, and skillfully, beginning with a free consultation, continuing with the convenience of flexible appointments, and finally, charge you nothing unless we win or settle.
