Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Jonesboro
When another person, company, or entity violates its duty of care to you and you are injured as a result, you have the right to take legal action. Although nothing can undo the pain and suffering you have endured, a successful Personal Injury claim can allow you to recover financial compensation for economic and non-economic losses you suffered due to the accident.
To bring a Personal Injury claim in Arkansas, you must be able to prove the following:
- Duty of Care: First, you must establish that another person/party owed you a duty of care, meaning they had a legal responsibility to take reasonable measures to prevent you from coming to harm. For example, auto drivers have a duty to do everything possible to prevent accidents, product manufacturers have a duty to create products that are reasonably safe for consumers, and property owners have a duty to maintain their premises and remove or warn others of dangerous conditions.
- Breach: Next, you will need to show that the other person/party breached the duty of care. Typically, this involves proving that the other person/party was negligent or acted recklessly or wrongfully. An example of a breach of the duty of care would be a motorist who acts negligently by texting while driving or driving while drunk. Another example would be a dog owner who fails to follow leash laws, despite knowing their dog had aggressive tendencies.
- Injuries and Damages: To have grounds for a Personal Injury claim, you will also need to prove that you were injured and/or sustained damages. Typically, damages are related to one’s injuries, but you may have damages if you were not physically injured or if your loved one was killed. Damages can be economic and non-economic and may include things like medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, future medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
- Causation: Lastly, you must demonstrate that your injuries and/or damages were caused by the other person/party’s breach of the duty of care. In other words, you must prove that, had the other person/party not breached the duty of care, you would not have been injured or suffered damages.
Whether you were injured in a car accident, slipped and fell on someone else’s property, or were harmed by a defective product, our Jonesboro Personal Injury attorneys can help you understand your legal rights. We offer free consultations for all Personal Injury clients and do not collect any attorneys’ fees unless we successfully recover compensation for you.
What Are the Benefits of Filing for Bankruptcy?
Although Bankruptcy has a negative connotation for many, it is actually one of the most effective forms of debt relief available to Americans. Bankruptcy is not without certain consequences, and it is not something that should be taken lightly. However, in many cases, filing for Bankruptcy can provide individuals and businesses with a much-needed fresh start.
Depending on the type of Bankruptcy filed, some of the advantages of filing for Bankruptcy include:
- Allows for elimination of certain debts, including credit card and medical debts
- Provides the ability to reorganize and restructure debts for a more manageable repayment plan
- Puts an immediate end to creditor harassment
- Halts wage/bank account garnishment
- Stops foreclosure proceedings and vehicle repossession (in some cases)
- Provides breathing room so that you can get your finances back under control
If you are considering filing for Bankruptcy, it’s important that you weigh the pros and cons. It’s also important that you understand your various options, including the different types of Bankruptcy you may be able to qualify for.
