Car and Truck Accidents Causing Injuries
Sherwood, Arkansas boasts an impressive array of 15+ community parks and recreational facilities. Although there have recently been efforts to increase the usage of biking and walking paths and public transportation, the vast majority of Sherwood residents use automobiles to get from place to place. Within Sherwood lies U.S. Routes 67 and 167, as well as Arkansas Highway 107, and Interstate 40 – a major interstate – lies just south of the city.
Being so close to such a major interstate brings a host of people passing through area, both private citizens and commercial truck drivers. While drivers in Arkansas are legally obligated to operate their motor vehicles in a safe manner, drivers are often careless or reckless on the road, resulting in auto accidents. If you or your loved one has suffered an injury or some form of harm due to a car accident, you may have a viable claim against the other driver to recoup damages to which you are legally entitled. If you are in need of immediate medical attention, you may need to visit a hospital like CHI St. Vincent North, located at 2215 Wildwood Avenue, Sherwood Arkansas 72120. Our personal injury lawyers can then help Sherwood residents seek compensation for the resulting costs.
Damages in Arkansas car and truck accident cases are generally placed in two categories: compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages, designed to make a victim whole again, can come in many forms, such as medical bills, physical therapy, surgery costs, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Our firm employs dedicated auto accident lawyers, and whether you are a resident of Sherwood or part of another community in Arkansas, we are ready to talk to you and explain how we may be able to help.
Holding Corporate Entities and Product Manufacturers Accountable
When you visit a store, shopping mall, or place of business, you should expect the owner to take reasonable measures to maintain the property and keep it safe. When this does not happen, unsuspecting customers and guests can get hurt. Two common scenarios are slip and fall incidents and injuries caused by negligent security. If a property owner knowingly disregards a risk of harm, you could have a viable cause of action for your bodily injuries.
Millions of people across the country take at least one prescription drug every day. While in the majority of instances prescription drugs work as intended, there are a number of scenarios in which, unfortunately, something goes wrong. This is where an area of the law called product liability serves to protect consumers. When a product is defective, a consumer may have a claim against a manufacturer or producer of that product for the injuries or other harm the consumer suffered. Product liability is a broad area of the law, also encompassing scenarios such as airbags failing to deploy.
Pharmaceutical drug-based product liability claims are similar in some ways to other defective product claims, but they present a number of unique features. There are three basic varieties of drug-related product liability claims:
- Pharmaceutical drugs with dangerous side effects
- Improperly marketed pharmaceutical drugs; and
- Defectively manufactured pharmaceutical drugs
There are a number of potential defendants in a pharmaceutical drug-related product liability claim, including the manufacturer and supplier. One thing for a personal injury attorney in Sherwood to keep in mind is that a product liability lawsuit could include a number of different individual claims against particular defendants. In addition, there are likely to be certain complexities in pharmaceutical drug-related product liability claims not found in many other types of lawsuits. Therefore, it is vital to retain effective and experienced counsel willing to investigate all causes of action on your behalf. For example, in addition to asserting a claim against a drug company, you could have claims for medical malpractice against a doctor or hospital that made a mistake in your medical treatment.
