How Is Liability Determined In Motor Tort Accidents In Delaware

Delaware motor tort cases allow the law to decide who the negligent party or parties are. Sometimes liability in an auto accident can be very easily determined. Other times, if the accident is complicated with multiple vehicles, causes and potentially responsible parties, deducing who is liable, and for what damages or expenses can be extremely convoluted.

What Happens In Delaware Motor Vehicle Accidents After Liability Is Established?

Once liability is established most motor tort cases in Delaware are typically resolved via settlement by the insurance companies. Settlements are reached by considering factors such as current medical costs, future medical costs, long term care and rehabilitation costs, lost income due to missed work time, pain, suffering and, if applicable, funeral expenses, loss of companionship and loss of parental guidance. Sometimes a settlement cannot be obtained after a motor tort case. In these instances your attorney can take the case to trial and attempt to have the jury award you compensation and benefits via a favorable verdict. A skilled Sussex County Delaware Motor Tort Lawyer will be fully prepared and willing to take your case to trial on your behalf.
