It's important to remember that contacting an attorney after a pedestrian accident can dramatically increase your chances of receiving compensation for your accident. This is especially true when your accident has led to serious injuries or when a negligent driver, such as a drunk, distracted or speeding driver, was responsible for your accident. Serious accidents often have serious legal consequences. Insurance companies might try to offer you a "low ball" settlement for your injuries. A pedestrian accident attorney in Jonesboro can put extensive knowledge and experience to work to maximize the compensation you deserve.
There are a variety of damages that may be available to victims who were injured in pedestrian accidents throughout Arkansas. These damages (compensation for your loss or injury) are meant to help injury victims recover financially for their losses and get their lives back on track. Damages may include medical expenses and cost of future medical care, lost wages from missing work, loss of future earning capacity, damages for pain, suffering and emotional distress, and punitive damages designed to punish drivers who acted with gross negligence or malicious intent.
You may still be entitled to compensation if you're partially at fault in a pedestrian accident. Arkansas is a comparative fault state. That means the victim of a pedestrian accident can recover damages so as long as he or she is less than 50 percent at fault in an accident. The modified comparative fault rule allows accident victims to recover damages proportionate to their percentage of fault.
