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.
Compensation in Car Accident Injury Claims
Car accident injury victims may be able to pursue compensation for damages including:
- Past and future medical treatment
- Lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
If a loved one was killed due to an accident caused by another driver’s negligence, surviving family members may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim.
Accidents with Uninsured/Underinsured Drivers
More than 16 percent of Arkansas drivers are uninsured. Carrying uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage through your insurance company is a good start, but if you’re in a collision with an uninsured or underinsured driver, it’s an even better idea to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
Auto accidents often result in more than property damage, and injury victims may be left facing long-term medical expenses and emotional impacts. If you weren’t responsible for the accident, you shouldn’t be burdened with the resulting medical costs and other damages.
