Stories about accidents are in the news every day; but when a serious accident involves you or a loved one, it hits home and hits hard. Unexpected accidents may cause debilitating injuries and costly medical expenses that can threaten your livelihood. Whether you were hurt in a car crash with a negligent driver, used a defective product that resulted in injuries, or slipped and fell on a slippery floor at a store, you may be entitled to compensation. You need a lawyer who will support you and ensure that your rights are protected.
The legal team at Rhoades & Morrow can help if you have been injured because of negligence. We will not rest until justice has been served. We understand that the last thing you need to worry about when you are recovering from serious injuries is how you will pay your bills and when or if you can return to work. We will piece together the elements regarding your accident and build a strong case that provides the compensation you require, so that you can make a fresh start.
Practice Areas We Cover
Auto Accidents – Car accidents are all too common on Delaware roads. They may result in serious injuries for occupants or even fatalities. We will ensure you receive the appropriate compensation that will cover your medical bills and other injury-related expenses.
Catastrophic Injury – Sustaining a catastrophic injury may mean significant changes to your lifestyle that could put financial and emotional stress on you and your family. Injuries involving the back or spinal cord, amputation of limbs, or paralysis are some instances of bodily harm that are considered catastrophic.
Defective Products – Toys, hardware, electronics, and many other items may contain defects that could be harmful to users. If you or someone you love used a product that was faulty due to a manufacturing error or the company failed to offer warnings about a product, you may be able to recover compensation by filing a product liability suit.
Medical Malpractice – We trust that doctors and other medical personnel will offer help, not harm, when we visit a hospital for a surgical procedure. Unfortunately, a misdiagnosis or medical error by a physician may lead to serious health consequences for you or loved ones.
Motorcycle Accidents – Riders of motorcycles are extremely vulnerable when colliding with another vehicle. They may incur devastating injuries that may render them unable to maintain the same quality of life.
Nursing Home Abuse – When an elderly relative faces abuse or neglect at the hands of a caretaker or a nurse designated to help them, it takes a toll on the entire family. We will ensure your loved ones receive justice if they experience this type of trauma.
Pedestrian and Bike Accidents – Taking a walk or bike ride on a sunny day gives many people pleasure. If a motorist fails to notice the pedestrian or bicyclist on the road or does not drive carefully around them, they may become injured if they are hit.
Premises Liability – Unsafe conditions at a business such as a slippery walkway or uneven stairs may lead to serious and unexpected injuries for the victim. An Elsmere injury lawyer will provide guidance when you endured a slip and fall accident.
Truck Accidents – Truck accident lawyers know the legal complexities that may arise when a driver engages in a crash with a tractor-trailer. The truck company will certainly retain strong legal representation, so you should, too, to ensure that your rights are protected.
Work Injuries – In some industries, workers may be more at-risk for developing work-related injuries and occupational illnesses while on the job. Receiving your rightful Workers’ Compensation benefits oftentimes takes the skills of a dedicated Workers’ Compensation attorney.
Wrongful Death – A fatal accident involving a loved one brings up feelings of despair and helplessness. Our wrongful death lawyers will lend a helping hand in seeing that family members receive the appropriate compensation in order to cover funeral bills and other associated expenses.
