Wilmington Delaware Personal Injury

My husband was involved in a slip and fall accident inside a grocery over the weekend. His knee swelled up and he is having a hard time supporting himself. We ended up going to the emergency room the same day and he didn’t break the leg but instead it was a serious sprain. Because he involved in construction he isn’t going to be able to go to work for the next week or so. Unfortunately if he doesn’t work we don’t get paid. My question is, can we somehow get compensated for both the hospital bill and for him losing time away from work, loss wages? I know we can probably get money for the hospital visit but I’m not too sure for him being out of work. How much will it cost and is it even worth us filing a lawsuit against the store? If there is an affordable lawyer or law firm in Wilmington DE can someone please let me know? I was considering contacting an attorney and a referral would be great. Any suggestions please!!!

  1. I have attached a pretty good PI firm in Wilmington Delaware. http://www.freibottlaw.com. Now the answers to your questions. First, you don’t typically pay a personal injury attorney. What you will need to due though is give that attorney or law firm a percentage of your earnings. Typically 33%. You should be able to receive compensation for loss wages, pain and suffering, medical bills and other expenses related to the accident. It would certainly be advantageous for you to contact a Delaware personal injury lawyer asap. If you decide to move forward with a lawyer just make sure he or she is primarily a PI lawyer. I would recommend hiring a lawyer that practices outside of this particular law area. Again, my recommendation is to contact a Wilmington Personal injury lawyer immediately.

  2. I found a personal injury lawyer in Kansas doing a search on http://www.targetlaw.com. I would guess that you could find a few attorneys as I did on the same site. What you need to do is do a lawyer search for either Delaware personal injury lawyer or Delaware slip and fall lawyer. Either way you will find a lawyer there. You can also search this sites directory because it links over to targetlaw. I think they probably pay this guy a fee to get their site listed here. In any event, its a good site so give it a try. Also you will pay around 33%-40% for a personal injury lawyer anywhere, no matter the state.

  3. I was involved in a slip and fall in Delaware as well. I went through the whole process with an attorney located in Wilmington. I didn’t get much of a settlement because the injury that I sustained was considered “minimum”. I felt like I spent a lot of time and effort for little reward. To be honest, it sucked!
