Statute of Limitations

Every state, including Arkansas, has a “statute of limitations” for filing a personal injury case in court. A statute of limitations is a deadline that prevents people from trying to take legal action decades after the accident occurred. If you have been injured in a car wreck, you have three years to file a lawsuit in Arkansas. If your injuries are not diagnosed until several days after the accident, the three-year period will begin on the date of diagnosis or discovery.

Modified Comparative Fault

With a personal injury claim, sometimes the defense may argue that the injured person was partially to blame for the accident. Arkansas recognizes “modified comparative fault” in cases like this. Under this rule, if you are injured in an accident and are found to be 10% at fault (for example), your awarded damages – the money you receive – will be reduced by 10%. Injured persons who are partly at fault can still be awarded some compensation, as long as their percentage of fault is less than 50%. If a plaintiff is found to be 50% responsible for the accident, they cannot collect compensation money from the defendant/at-fault party.

This rule is usually applied in negligence cases, but insurance adjusters may bring it up during settlement negotiation.

Damage Caps

Some states put a cap on damages payable for injury cases, the maximum dollar amount that a plaintiff can be awarded. Arkansas does not set a cap on damages. Section 32 of Article 5 in the Arkansas state constitution prohibits this type of limit.

Arkansas is Not a No-Fault State

In the state of Arkansas, a divorce cannot be finalized until one side or both have demonstrated that there is a justifiable reason or “fault” for terminating a divorce. As you can imagine, this further complicates the divorce process as neither party would want to be the reason for the marital dissolution. This is especially true when the two spouses who are seeking a dissolution of marriage have children. As your legal representative, we will ensure that your voice is heard and that your side of the story is presented to the court in the most compelling and favorable light. Our attorneys will be sensitive to your needs and desires particularly if you have children.

The Rees Law Firm will update you on the progress of your case. Our legal team will explain how these new developments affect your case and the legal options afforded you. You can trust that our legal staff will be as accessible as possible to ease your concerns throughout this emotionally challenging time.
