Car Accidents

​Even a car accident that seems minor can have serious consequences, impacting your ability to pay your bills, to spend time with your loved ones and to engage in the activities that bring you joy, while working with an insurance company to sort out a claim can leave you feeling frustrated and helpless – at best.  At Kimmel Carter, we’re here to help you take back control. With over 210 years of combined experience, our attorneys have the knowledge and the skill to win complex car accident cases against even the toughest insurance companies, so that you can get the compensation you need to pay your bills and get back to your life.  As the largest law firm in the state that exclusively handles personal injury and workers’ compensation cases, we’re able to focus all of our extensive resources on helping injury victims. So it makes sense that members of our team are regarded as some of the best car accident lawyers in Delaware by their peers, our clients, and the community, and that we consistently obtain impressive settlements for clients injured in motor vehicle accidents, as well as for bicyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.  With this reputation, insurance companies both fear and respect us, a fact that helps us get the best possible settlement for your injuries. And should your case go to trial, rest assured that you’ll have an experienced advocate in the courtroom, ready to fight for you until the end.   No out of pockets costs – just the compensation you deserve. In the aftermath of an accident, attorney fees should be the last thing on your mind. Our office offers free consultations and contingency fee arrangements, so that you will only ever pay us a percentage of what we win for your case – never anything out of pocket.

Hit-and-Runs

As upsetting as a car accident is under normal circumstances, it can be especially difficult to cope with a crash when you don't know who was responsible.

Motorcycle Accidents

With in-depth experience with the unique nature of motorcycle accident cases and an impressive record of victories for motorcycle riders, the Kimmel Carter team has what it takes to get you the compensation you deserve for your injury.  Skilled in both negotiations and the courtroom, our attorneys will fight to help you pay for your physical therapy and other medical bills, for lost wages due to your injury and for damage to your bike and other property. Our deep knowledge of the law and the legal environment in Delaware allows us to successfully defend the rights of motorcyclists, bicyclists and other vulnerable groups, while our responsive, compassionate legal team will make sure that you feel at ease throughout the duration of your case.  If you or a loved one was hurt in a motorcycle accident, we’re here to help.

Truck Accidents

On average, fatal truck accidents occur almost 11 times every day in the United States.

Pedestrian Injuries

Whether they are hurt crossing one of New Castle County's many four-lane highways or the southern end of Route 1, pedestrians seem to be struck in Delaware far too often. Sad though it may be, it is unsurprising that our state has been called the most dangerous in the country for pedestrians, with Delawareans nearly twice as likely to die walking as pedestrians than in any other state in 2012 and 2013.  Given the severe nature of pedestrian accidents, it is often a good idea to contact an attorney if you have been hit by a vehicle. Even when pedestrian accidents are not fatal, they can require extensive surgery or medical attention, and it is best not to wait to look into your options for reimbursement for these expenses.  If you or a loved one has been hurt as a pedestrian, please contact us today to speak to one of our experienced lawyers for free.
