Little Rock Auto Accident Attorneys
On average, a fatal car accident occurs on American roads every 15 minutes. Many times the victims don’t see the accident coming, let alone have enough time to protect themselves.
Most people don’t see driving as unsafe when, in fact, it’s much more so than many of the other things we perceive as “dangerous.” Take flying for instance. Many people fear dying in a plane crash, but that likelihood is 1 in 9,737. Being struck by lightning is another fear many people have. In reality, your odds of dying from a lightning strike are 1 in 174,426.
Your odds of dying in an auto accident are much greater at 1 in 606. Why are the odds so high? Because automobiles are operated by humans and human error is a factor in 93% of car accidents. These accidents are caused by three things: improper lookout, speeding, or distracted driving/inattention.
The fact is every time you drive is a gamble. It could be just like any other day, where you go to work and do your errands without issue, or it could be the day your life is changed forever. If you or a loved one was injured an auto accident, the Little Rock attorneys at the Minton Law Firm can handle your case and help you get back on the road.
Types of Auto Accidents
Auto accidents aren’t limited to cars; they can involve any type of vehicle on the road, from 18-wheelers to motorcycles. Regardless of what kind of vehicles were involved in your accident, Justin Minton can let you know what kind of compensation you may be entitled to and help you file a compelling lawsuit.
The Minton Law Firm can help with a wide variety of automobile accidents. Below are some of the kinds of auto accidents we handle regularly.
When a car accident involves multiple vehicles, it can be tricky when proving who was at fault. We can help walk you through this process and see that you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
Because tractor-trailers are so much larger than cars, they can cause catastrophic injuries and serious property damage. Litigation can be hard because, not only do these accidents involve the trucker, they may involve the trucking company, manufacturers, and their lawyers as well.
Many times drivers don’t see motorcyclists until it’s too late. These accidents can result in broken bones, back injuries, and serious internal injuries.
Bicyclists must obey the rules of the road as a car would, but this can put them in a vulnerable position at times. We help cyclists who have suffered injuries as the result of a negligent driver.
Buses carry a large number of people for city transportation and tours, but what happens if there is an accident? The Minton Law Firm can help you negotiate a settlement for your damages and see you made whole again.
Distracted driving and distracted walking can both contribute to accidents involving pedestrians and vehicles. If you were in a pedestrian accident, let us evaluate your case to see what compensation you may be entitled to.
Drunk driving accidents
When you mix alcohol and vehicles, you have a recipe for a disaster that can alter lives forever. If you or a loved one suffered injury or wrongful death at the hands of a drunk driver, we can help.
Distracted driving accidents
Texting, making phone calls, talking to passengers; even taking your eyes off the road for a few seconds to change the radio station can cause an accident. You don’t deserve to pay for the negligence of a distracted driver.
Under-insured/uninsured motorist accidents
Over 16% of Arkansas drivers are uninsured. Carrying uninsured driver coverage through your insurance company is a good start, but if you’re involved with an uninsured or under-insured driver, it’s an even better idea to have an excellent lawyer on your side.
Not only can an auto accident cause serious property damage, it can also result in catastrophic injury and even wrongful death. The financial effects of an accident can last a long time, and the emotional effects can last even longer.
