Arkansas Motor Vehicle Accidents

We have been handling these cases for 27 years as of the summer of 2009.

Millions of folks are injured in motor vehicle collisions each year with more than 2 million of these injuries being permanent.  Over 40,000 deaths occur each year.  Approximately 40% of fatalities are caused by a drunken driver.  Approximately 30% are caused by speeding and/or reckless driving.

While some crashes are the result of intentional behavior by a driver, most accidents involve negligence or recklessness.  Most of us have insurance protection in the event that we make a mistake that causes injury or damage to others.  Insurance companies should meet their policy obligations.  Unfortunately, the process for recovering just payment is complicated and filled with pitfalls for the inexperienced.   Getting just payment from insurance companies can be complicated and require legal expertise. 

Here are some of the questions that every accident victim should be able to answer:

  • How much is my case worth?
  • What evidence should be preserved before it is lost?
  • Should health insurance or vehicle insurance pay my medical bills?
  • Can statements to adjusters or others be used against me later?
  • Should I give a recorded statement to any insurance company?
  • Should I sign a medical authorization for the insurance company?
  • Is there more than one insurance company that should pay?
  • What can I do if there is no insurance or insufficient insurance?
  • What paperwork should be signed and when?
  • What is the best way to deal with medical bills and other bills?
  • How can chiropractic care affect my case?
  • When should I consider settling?
  • What are the pros and cons of attorney letters of protection?
  • How much time can pass before I lose my right to seek compensation forever?
  • How do I protect my personal injury claim while settling the damage to my vehicle?

Before you hire an attorney, please ask:

  • Can reputation and experience affect how much money I get and how quickly I get it?
  • Have you tried cases in which a jury awarded over $1 million? 30 million?
  • Have you settled cases higher than $1 million? 2 million?
  • Do adjusters offer the same money to law firms known to settle at all cost?
  • Can you give me references who can tell me about their experience with you and your firm?
  • If my case goes to trial, will you or a less experienced lawyer try my case?
  • Will the law firm advance expenses necessary to handle my case properly?

I will be honored to represent you.  I do not advertise on television and will not publicize your personal, private case for my own benefit.  This approach will not get me elected “Best Attorney…” by folks who do not know my work. 

What you think about me at the end of your case is what counts.
