Four Steps to Take After a Crash in Northwest Arkansas
The aftermath of a major traffic collision is stressful, confusing, and often overwhelming. Unfortunately, some people inadvertently make mistakes that end up undermining their own legal rights. To protect your health, well-being, and ability to recover full financial compensation, you should:
- Report the crash to state or local law enforcement;
- Secure evidence from the scene—including photographs;
- Get a comprehensive medical evaluation from a qualified doctor; and
- Consult with an attorney before giving a statement to an insurance company.
An Overview of Car Accident Laws in Arkansas
In Arkansas, a car accident must be reported to the authorities if there is $1,000 in total property damage or if any person suffered a bodily injury. Auto accident injury claims are subject to a three-year statute of limitations. If you were hurt in a crash, you have three years from the date of the wreck to file a lawsuit. Of course, you should not wait that long to initiate a claim. Be proactive.
Similar to most U.S. states, Arkansas is an ‘at-fault’ car accident jurisdiction. This means that the party (most often a driver) who was to blame for an accident will be legally liable for the resulting damages. Fault is based on ‘negligence’—which is defined as the failure to take proper care. As Arkansas uses a comparative fault standard, multiple parties may share partial liability for the same crash.
You Deserve Full Compensation for Your Injuries
Through an auto accident injury claim, you can seek financial compensation for the full extent of your damages. Sadly, large insurance companies fight aggressively to pay out as little as possible. We can help. Our Northwest Arkansas auto accident attorneys have the skills and experience to help you maximize your settlement. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation for:
- Emergency room treatment;
- Medical bills;
- Physical therapy;
- Psychological counseling;
- Loss of income;
- Pain and suffering;
- Permanent impairment; and
- Wrongful death.
