Delaware Medical Malpractice Lawyers


Delaware Medical Negligence Lawyers

There is no amount of money that can compensate you for a serious, life changing injury or the wrongful death of a family member due to an automobile accident, workplace accident or medical malpractice. Nevertheless, at Shelsby & Leoni in Wilmington, Delaware, we try to make you as whole as possible financially so you can move on with your life. We serve clients in Delaware, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.

Before we began representing victims of automobile accidents, trucking accidents, medical malpractice and premises liability accidents we practiced insurance defense law for a number of years. As a direct result or our insurance defense experience, we learned from the inside how insurance companies evaluate and defend medical malpractice, car accidents, tractor-trailer accidents, construction accidents, nursing home injuries, and other types of personal injury cases. In addition, we know the resources that insurance companies have available to defend themselves from personal injury lawsuits. Our experience gives us a tremendous advantage, because we prepare a case for litigation long before a defense lawyer sees it.

Experienced Delaware And Maryland Accident Lawyers

It is beneficial to find a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in trying cases. Most personal injury lawyers aim to settle cases quickly and seldom go to trial. While a fair settlement is preferred over the uncertainty of a jury verdict, we know that insurance companies make smaller offers when they know the opposing lawyers are inexperienced or unwilling to try cases in court.

The Delaware Trial Attorneys at Shelsby & Leoni have extensive experience litigating cases from both the defense and plaintiff’s perspective. They routinely fight on their clients behalf to obtain very favorable settlements and verdicts above and beyond what the liable parties insurance carrier initially offered. We have extensive handling all types of accident, catastrophic injury and medical malpractice cases including, but not limited to:

  • Auto accidents including rear end accidents, head on accidents and lane change accidents
  • Animal attacks including dog bites and other domestic animal attacks
  • Commercial vehicle accidents such as trucking accidents, delivery truck accidents and limo accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents including DUI accidents, lane splitting accidents and single bike accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents at retail stores, restaurants, convenient stores, health clubs and gas stations
  • Medical malpractice at all major Delaware and Maryland hospitals, clinics, emergency rooms, clinics and surgery centers
  • Product liability including home products, office products, childrens products and pet products
  • Surgical errors including medically necessary surgery, botched surgery, plastic surgery and elective surgery
  • Failure to diagnose cancer, meningitis, diabetes. Lyme disease and other serious medical issues
  • Wrongful death caused by medical malpractice, auto accidents and workplace accidents

Obtaining a satisfactory outcome in a personal injury case requires attorneys who understand how to negotiate with insurance companies. It also requires attorneys who are willing to try cases. The Delaware medical negligence lawyers at Shelsby & Leoni are experienced at both.

What To Look For When Hiring Medical Negligence Lawyers

2) Experience actually trying cases

3) Length of time they have been handling medical malpractice cases

4) Reputation

5) Verdict and settlement history

The Aftermath Of An Accident Caused By Another’s Negligence

Regardless of whether you were injured in a car accident, slip and fall accident or have been the victim of medical malpractice your life may be altered for years to come.
