Can I Sue For My Medical Bills If I Was Hit By A Drunk Driver In Arkansas?

DUI accident victims are entitled to seek compensation for a range of losses in Arkansas – including the cost of their medical care. So if you’ve been injured in an accident caused by an intoxicated driver, you should contact a car injury claims lawyer as soon as possible.

For years, the legal team at Mullins & Blake Attorneys has been helping clients in Springdale, AR, Rogers, AR, and Fort Smith, AR, to find the compensation they need to focus on the future again.

Can I Still Recover Damages If I Was Partially At Fault For A Car Accident In Arkansas?

The state of Arkansas handles these cases by using a modified comparative fault rule. When determining comparative fault, attorneys (or the courts) will assess the evidence of the accident to assign a percentage of liability to each party.

For example, it may be determined that you are 20% at fault for your accident. In this case, 20% of your total losses would be subtracted from the amount of compensation due to you.

This means that if your overall losses were assessed at $100,000, but you were determined to be 20% at fault for the accident, you would be entitled to receive compensation in the amount of $80,000.

It is important to note: Because Arkansas uses a modified comparative fault rule, you must be less responsible for the accident than the other party to bring legal action against them. Therefore, if you are 60% liable, you are not eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

If you believe you were partially responsible for your collision, it’s crucial to reach out to a car accident lawyer at your earliest convenience.

Will I Need To File A Car Accident Lawsuit To Recover Damages In Arkansas?

Many people are curious about their options when it comes to car accident claims. One of the biggest questions people have is: Will I need to go to court to recover compensation for a car accident?

It’s an important question – and the answer varies greatly from case to case.

Litigation is an essential tool in any claims process. Sometimes cases will go to court when insurance companies and your attorney cannot negotiate a satisfactory settlement agreement. Other times, a suit is filed to force the hand of an insurance provider that won’t budge in the settlement process.

It’s true that the majority of these claims end in settlement  before they ever reach the courtroom. Regardless of this fact, it’s crucial to have an attorney on your side who can take whatever action is necessary to get you the compensation you need and deserve.
