Firm Overview

Wilmington Personal Injury Lawyers Well-Respected Delaware Trial Lawyers

Insurance companies know when they can push a firm around and when they have to be ready for a fight. When we take the side of an injured person, the insurance company often settles. They know that we are not afraid to go to court, and so they treat our demands with respect.

At Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, our Wilmington personal injury attorneys have built this reputation through years of courtroom success. Our lawyers have accomplished settlements and jury awards in excess of $1 million, and we have helped the victims of nursing home abuse, slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents, work injuries and defective products reclaim their lives through legal action.

Respected throughout Delaware, many of our clients come from referrals — not just from clients and other attorneys, but from former jurors and medical doctors who served as witnesses for the defense. Attorney Gary Nitsche was nominated as a 2007 Super Lawyer by Philadelphia Magazine in the areas of personal injury and workers' compensation. He was also recognized as one of 2004's Best Lawyers in Delaware and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a prestigious group of lawyers who have won verdicts and settlements in excess of a million dollars.

Attorneys Joseph Weik and Shawn Dougherty have been selected as "top lawyers" by Delaware Today Magazine, and Ms. Dougherty was recognized every year since 2007 for her family law practice by the publication "Best Lawyers in America." Our law firm strives to build on our successful record with every case we take, and we are AV® rated* under Martindale-Hubbell's peer-review rating system.

People recognize our potential for success, but at Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty, we also realize the potential in our clients. That's why our trial attorneys make time to meet with clients on evenings or weekends. We are also available to visit injured people at home or in the hospital.
