Each year in Arkansas and Oklahoma, thousands of auto accidents occur. A majority of auto accidents are caused by the negligent actions of drivers. Even when a driver’s fault appears clear, insurance companies may attempt to dispute liability or try to extend settlement offers that are inadequate. Our attorneys understand the various tactics that insurance companies use and work to build strong cases that clearly demonstrate liability for our clients.
The physical forces released in accidents involving large trucks can be substantial. Big rigs may weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, and they are much more difficult to stop than smaller vehicles. Because of their huge sizes and high weights, trucks may cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities in accidents. Our attorneys work with injured victims to help them recover fair compensation for all of their losses.

This may help you recover the compensation that you need to cover your losses.
When people receive medical care, they place their trust and their lives in the hands of the doctors and other medical staff.

Potential Damages We Fight to Recover
The damages available to you will depend on the circumstances of your personal injury case and the extent of your injuries. In injury cases, you might recover special damages and general damages. Special damages are all of your economic or pecuniary losses and may include the following:
- Past and future medical costs
- Past income losses
- Future income losses
- Property losses
General damages are losses that are more difficult to quantify and might include the following:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Impairment of your physical or mental capacity
- Loss of consortium for spouses of victims
- Loss of the enjoyment of life
If the defendant’s actions in your case were particularly egregious, our attorneys may be able to recover punitive damages. These are damages that are above your actual losses and are meant to deter others from engaging in similar conduct.
