Pursuing Compensation for Personal Injury in Russellville

If you prove by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant in your case caused your injuries and losses, you can collect compensation, including economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. 

Economic Damages

Economic damages compensate for the tangible aspects of your losses that easily reduce to a monetary value. They include things like:

  • Medical and rehabilitation expenses
  • Lost wages 
  • Lowered future earning capacity
  • Home accommodations in cases involving disability
  • Property damage
  • Funeral and burial costs

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages allow you to recover compensation for the more subjective aspects of your losses, including things like: 

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
  • Scarring and disfigurement 
  • Lowered quality of life

Punitive Damages

If the other party acted with intent, malice, or reckless disregard for your safety, a court may also allow you to pursue punitive damages. Punitive damages are rare, but if your case merits them, your Russellville personal injury lawyer will pursue them vigorously to maximize your compensation.

What If I Was Partly Responsible for my Accident?

Arkansas follows a modified comparative fault standard in personal injury cases. You cannot collect damages if you are 50 percent or more responsible for your accident. If you are less than 50 percent responsible, your damages are reduced in proportion to your degree of responsibility. For example, if you were 30 percent responsible for an accident that resulted in $100,000 in damages, you can collect $70,000. 

Helping Those in Russellville Who Have Been Affected by Car Accidents

In 2021, Arkansas car accidents resulted in 2,721 serious injuries and 693 deaths. People may feel safer in more rural parts of the state, but those areas can also be dangerous when negligent drivers speed down winding or seemingly empty roads.

The personal injury lawyers at NST Law represent injury victims in Russellville, throughout Arkansas, and beyond. For example, we have helped auto accident victims and folks struggling with other personal injuries in West Memphis, Little Rock, and Pine Bluff.

Dangerous Intersections in Russellville

State Highway 64 runs through the heart of Russellville, and many accidents occur at intersections of the highway and other local roads, such as Arkansas and Knoxville Avenues. Interstate 40 also runs north of Russellville, bringing a significant number of large trucks to the area. If you are in a collision with a truck on the interstate, you may have a case against the driver and the trucking company. 

The roads around Arkansas Tech are also bustling with restaurants, a stadium, and several sports facilities. Dangerous accidents can happen when negligent drivers do not yield the right of way, exit parking lots without looking, or are distracted looking for their destination.

Who Is Liable in a Personal Injury Case in Russellville?

In personal injury cases, liability can fall on various parties depending on the circumstances of the accident or injury. Determining liability involves establishing who was negligent or otherwise responsible for causing the harm. Here are some common parties who can be found liable:

Liability in personal injury cases is often complex, involving multiple parties and requiring detailed investigation into the circumstances of the injury. Establishing liability typically necessitates proving that the party at fault owed a duty of care to the injured person, breached that duty, and thereby caused the injury.
