How Much Can I Recover through a Settlement or Court Award After a Little Rock Injury?
While there is no way to know how much your case might be worth before an investigation into what happened, you likely incurred several recoverable damages. When we pursue a settlement or court award for our clients, we want to compel the insurer or liable party to properly compensate them for these losses and costs. Some examples include:
- Medical treatment, ambulance transportation, and other expenses
- Future care costs related to the incident
- Lost wages and other income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Out-of-pocket expenses, with documentation
- Pain and suffering damages
Like other types of personal injury cases, many premises liability claims never go to trial. We secure compensation for our clients through settlement negotiations and never need to sue the landowner or make a court appearance.
If the insurer does not agree to a just settlement based on the evidence we present, though, we may need to go to trial. Our attorneys will litigate cases when necessary to get the best possible outcome for our clients.

Do I Have a Valid Premises Liability Case?
Premises liability is an area of personal injury law based on the responsibility landowners and occupiers have to keep guests safe. If you own property in Arkansas, you must ensure it is free from unreasonable risks.
If there is a serious hazard and someone visiting your property suffers injuries, you may be legally responsible. This law applies to private homes, restaurants, stores, and public buildings.
Types of Premises Liability Cases
There are many kinds of dangers that pose a risk of injury. Types of premises liability cases include:
- Spills, leaks, and other slip and fall risks
- Trip and falls from obstructions in the walkway
- Falls from an elevated area
- Deck collapses
- Dog bites
- Pool accidents and drownings
- Trampoline injuries
- Elevator and escalator incidents
- Poor maintenance
- Inadequate security
If you suffered injuries in a local business, a big box store, or someone’s home, reach out to our team to discuss if you can recover compensation to pay for your medical care and other needs.
What Deadlines do I Need to Be Aware of in Little Rock Premises Liability Cases?
We can often recover payouts for our clients via an insurance settlement, but it is vital to protect our clients’ rights to go to trial. This includes ensuring we meet all applicable deadlines.
There are deadlines for suing the property owner or lessee responsible for injuries in these cases. These deadlines are generally three years after the incident occurred:
Under certain circumstances, however, these deadlines change. For example, you may have considerably less time to act if you suffered fall injuries in a municipal building. If the injuries affected a child, you may have more time.
The Morris Bart law office in Little Rock can help you understand the deadline applicable in your case and ensure you meet it if there is time to do so. This is key in protecting your rights to build a case and recover compensation.
