Hurt in an Accident? Let Us Deal With the Insurance Companies
There are many common types of accidents leading to serious injury and legal claims:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace incidents
- Truck accidents
- Negligent security incidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Injuries resulting from medical care
What do all of these incidents have in common? In many of these cases, someone’s negligence or recklessness may have contributed to your injuries, even if you did nothing wrong. For example, in a car accident, you may have been obeying all the road rules only to find yourself injured in a collision because another motorist was driving while drunk or distracted. In cases where you’re hurt by someone else’s recklessness or negligence, the law allows you to pursue a legal claim against the negligent party’s insurance company.
If you were hurt at work or in a car accident, it's normal to assume your insurance company will cover your medical expenses. Unfortunately, many people discover that their insurers are only willing to pay a fraction of their medical bills.
This doesn't mean your insurance company shouldn't pay — what it actually means is you need legal professionals with personal injury experience to deal with the insurance companies and fight for what you deserve to receive. Insurance companies are focused on making a profit, and this means they are often reluctant to pay out the full amount possible in each case. At the same time, medical expenses can be quite high, so if you don’t get the insurance money you deserve, you could end up with overwhelming debt. Rahaim & Saints understands this difficult situation, and we routinely go to work on behalf of plaintiffs who have been injured. Our goal is to seek justice and fair compensation for individuals have been injured in Delaware.
Have you been injured at work? The laws governing worker’s compensation are far from simple. Often, they were designed to protect employers’ interests first, leaving those injured with the burden to defend their right to compensation. That’s where we come in.

Bankruptcy Can Mean a New Beginning
Over one and a half million Americans file for bankruptcy each year, and medical bills are the most common reason individuals file for bankruptcy. If you or a family member had a serious medical emergency or chronic problem, the bills may simply be too much to handle. This can happen even if you have insurance.
While bankruptcy isn't the solution for every financial challenge, it can be the right option for taking control of your financial future. By contacting us for a consultation, we'll be able to evaluate your specific situation and provide our opinion on whether bankruptcy or another avenue is the right path to go down.
Many people see bankruptcy as a financial disaster, but this legal process actually protects you. Bankruptcy is simply a legal process that lets you reach an agreement with your creditors when you cannot repay what you owe. During a bankruptcy, your credit rating will be lowered and you may have to sell off some of your assets — but you will also get a chance to protect some of your biggest assets, such as your house or retirement accounts, so you can protect your future. Once you file your bankruptcy, you immediately stop repossession, collection and foreclosure action. After your bankruptcy is complete, many of your qualifying debt will be eliminated so you can focus on rebuilding your finances.
You have two options if you decide to file for bankruptcy. Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually used for unsecured debts like credit cards, and it can eliminate some of what you owe. You need to meet certain income limits to qualify. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is often used for mortgage, spousal support, child support debts and for those who don’t qualify for Chapter 7. Chapter 13 bankruptcy rearranges your debts and makes them more affordable rather than just forgiving them. If you’d like to explore your bankruptcy options or need representation or help with the process, contact Rahaim & Saints for a consultation.
Our bankruptcy lawyer, Tiffany Poole, has extensive experience in all matters of financial concern — from chapter 7 and Chapter 13 to child support, credit card debt and medical bill relief.
