The Morris Bart law firm can help you seek financial awards if you or a loved one was hurt in a pedestrian accident. Our lawyers serving Little Rock can help you identify the cause of your accident, prove that another party is liable for your damages, and pursue fair compensation for you and your family.
Working with Our Firm Comes with No Upfront Costs
After a pedestrian accident, you may be facing significant medical bills or missing work due to recovery. Your bank account might be taking a big hit, and we don’t want to add to this burden. That is why our lawyers work for a contingency fee, meaning we don’t take any payments up front or hourly.
Our attorneys are only ever paid if and when we successfully secure a financial award for you. Working with us comes with no financial risk and case consultations are free, so we urge you to connect with us today.
We Can Use Our 40-Plus Years of Experience to Pursue Your Compensation
Our legal team knows how to pursue the most advantageous settlement or verdict possible for your pedestrian accident. We have more than 40 years of combined experience seeking compensation for personal injury victims, and we have won millions of dollars for our clients.
We can help you fight for your accident-related expenses, known as economic damages, which may include awards for:
- Medical procedures and surgeries
- Medical devices and mobility aids
- Long-term care services
- Wage compensation
- Loss of future earnings
- Property damages
You May be Entitled to Damages for Your Pain and Suffering
Injuries can impact your life in ways that go beyond just physical harm or economic damages. Injuries can lead to depression, insomnia, anxiety, and emotional and mental anguish. Ailments like the loss of a limb, paralysis, or chronic pain can change the way you interact with those you love.
You can seek compensation for reductions in your quality of life due to your pedestrian accident. These awards are often referred to as damages for pain and suffering or non-economic damages. Our lawyers help you calculate and seek a fair sum for these losses.
Seeking Awards for Your Loved One’s Wrongful Death
If your loved one died from a pedestrian accident injury, a representative of their estate can seek compensation on their behalf, according to AR Code § 16-62-102. The representative may seek awards for the decedent’s:
- Final medical care
- Funeral and burial costs
- Pain and suffering
Surviving family members of the deceased may seek additional damages to compensate for the loss of their loved one. This compensation may include awards for the grief and suffering caused by your loved one’s death, the value of the deceased’s financial support, and the loss of the deceased’s care, companionship, or guidance.
Don’t Wait to Seek Awards for Your Injuries and Losses
There is a statute of limitations on seeking economic and non-economic damages in civil court. According to ARK. Code Ann. § 16-56-105, you have three years from the time of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit, though circumstances exist that could shorten your time limit. The same three-year timeline goes for wrongful death, under AR Code § 16-62-102.
These statutes matter, even if you believe your case will settle outside of court. Insurance companies may use an expired statute as justification to reduce or deny your compensation.
If you are unable to make the deadline, the court might throw out your case, leaving you to pay for damages on your own. By hiring an attorney to assist you with your case quickly, you give them time to correctly handle your case and to adhere to these deadlines.
We Wll Get to the Root Cause of Your Pedestrian Accident
Smart Growth America attributes pedestrian deaths to various factors, including road design, high vehicle speeds, and an increase in large vehicles, such as SUVs and pickup trucks, which are three times more likely than smaller vehicles to fatally injure a pedestrian during a crash.
Our accident attorneys can help you seek compensation, whether the at-fault party is a driver, a government entity or roadway owner, or an automaker. We will investigate your accident to determine if driver error, unsafe road conditions, a vehicle problem, or a combination of issues contributed to your crash. We will then help you pursue awards from all liable parties.
Not All Pedestrian Accidents Involve a Motor Vehicle
Our team can also assist with non-vehicular pedestrian accidents. If you suffered injuries because of cracked or broken sidewalks, falling debris or construction debris, an obstructed walkway, or another condition caused by someone’s negligence, we encourage you to contact our team to learn about what legal options may be available to you.
How We Prepare to File Your Case
Our team can help you pursue a claim against the at-fault driver or whichever party caused your injuries. We will:
- File your insurance claim
- Collect evidence proving another party’s negligence (this may include photographs, videos, and expert and eyewitness testimony)
- Communicate with insurance representatives on your behalf
- Represent you and your best interest during negotiations
We Will Not Back Down from Taking Your Case to Trial
If we cannot reach a satisfactory agreement with the insurance company, or the company denies your claim, we are not afraid to file suit and take your case to civil court. Our only goal is to get you the awards you need and deserve.
