There are a number of points of interest in North Little Rock, such as Dickey-Stephens Park, the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, and the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum. North Little Rock serves as a major highway intersection, with Interstates 30 and 40, and U.S. Routes 65, 67, and 167 all running through the city. The combination of a number of tourist destinations and the presence of highways leads to a high number of auto accidents. To recover compensation for your medical bills and other losses following a wreck, Arkansas law requires you to show that another driver acted negligently, typically defined as failing to act reasonably under the circumstances.
A particularly high risk for those passing through North Little Rock is the probability of trucking accidents occurring. Every day, hundreds of 18-wheelers cross the city on Interstates 30 and 40. Many of these crashes are caused by drivers disregarding the laws of the road, violating federal and state regulations. Similar to a car wreck case, you typically need to show that the truck driver was negligent in order to recover for your losses. However, as a personal injury lawyer in the North Little Rock area can tell you, the trucking company could be held vicariously responsible for your injuries if the trucker was acting in the course and scope of employment. This highlights the importance of fully investigating the accident and circumstances surrounding it.Cases Involving Dangerous or Defective Products
As consumers, we rely on companies, big and small, to produce the goods we need to carry out our lives. While we hope every product works as designed and intended, that unfortunately is not always the case. This is why an area of law called product liability exists: to enable consumers to recover in the event they are injured from a defective product. Many types of products can be defective, including household cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, firearms, tools, medications, medical devices, automobiles, and more.
Residents of Arkansas typically have three years from the date of injury to file a product liability lawsuit. This three-year statute of limitations begins on the date you discovered, or should have discovered, a relationship between the defective product and the injury or harm you suffered, subject to certain exceptions. Product liability cases are often technical and complex, as there are a number of different theories of liability and defenses producers and manufacturers may raise. Given the Arkansas statute of limitations on product liability cases and the complexity of the issues involved, you should consider contacting a North Little Rock personal injury lawyer as soon after the injury or harm as possible.Contact an Experienced Attorney Today
