When an individual is harmed due to the negligent actions of another person or entity, the individual has a legal right to file a lawsuit to recover damages under Arkansas law. Damages are the various types of accident-related financial recoveries a plaintiff may be awarded by the courts such as pain and suffering, property damage, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. It is critical that a personal injury victim is represented by a qualified attorney who can successfully prove a) the Defendant’s liability for the accident and b) the Plaintiff’s damage. Arkansas law mandates that the courts to follow a “Modified Comparative Fault” rule in personal injury cases. “Modified Comparative Fault” means that the courts will determine to what percentage the injured person was “at-fault” for causing the accident. The percentage of fault decided by the courts will impact the amount the Plaintiff may recover or if the Plaintiff may recover any damages at all. This is why it is essential that an injury victim is represented by effective and qualified legal counsel.
