With a population of nearly 30,000 people, Russellville, Arkansas, is the largest city in Pope County. In addition, Russellville is home to the state’s only nuclear power plant, Arkansas Nuclear One, Arkansas Tech University, and more than 10 divisions of Fortune 500 companies. With all of these economic opportunities located in the city of Russellville, there are many people commuting to and from their jobs. Commuting creates the possibility of car accidents and truck crashes. Other accidents one may become involved in can stem from product defects or slipping and falling on someone else’s property. Regardless of the type of accident, an injured individual in Russellville should be able to recover fair compensation for their injuries and losses that were the result of another person’s negligence.

With Interstate 40 running through Russellville, there is ample opportunity for interstate highway accidents to occur. On interstate highways, you may become involved in an auto accident or a trucking collision. When an accident is caused by another person’s negligence, you may be able to recover economic and non-economic damages stemming from the collision by proving the other driver’s negligence. For example, if you were rear-ended by a tanker truck on I-40, you would likely need to establish that the truck driver owed you a duty of reasonable care, breached said duty, and caused you to sustain injuries as a result.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle collision due to a product defect in your vehicle rather than the negligence of another driver, you may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of your vehicle. A product liability action in Arkansas may be based on negligence or strict liability. The action may include claims of manufacturing defect or design defect. Product liability claims can also extend beyond the realm of motor vehicles. For instance, many victims are injured due to insufficient warnings regarding prescription drugs and consumer products. A personal injury lawyer in the Russellville area can consult with experts to investigate a potential product liability or mass tort claim.
A common accident that usually gets property owners in hot water is when another person on their property slips and falls. However, these cases can be tricky because much of the liability revolves around whether or not a property owner took appropriate measures to prevent a slip and fall. For example, if you were eating at a restaurant and slipped on a recently mopped floor that had a caution sign near it, the owner may not be held liable for you slipping and falling since steps were taken to correct the issue and provide notice of danger to customers. However, if there was a leak coming from the roof that had been dripping for weeks and no proper action was taken to prevent customers from slipping, the owner may be held liable. In those instances, it is important to photograph the scene and obtain contact information of witnesses.Contact NST for a Free Consultation with a Personal Injury Attorney in Russellville
