If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be facing mounting medical bills, lost income, expensive vehicle repairs, and other forms of financial hardship. The settlements offered by insurance companies are often too small to make a significant difference when it comes to coping with these expenses.
Before you accept any kind of payment from an insurance company, you should first contact the experienced lawyers at the Duncan Firm to discuss the true value of your claim. You may be entitled to more compensation than you think. Call us at 877-638-6226 for a free consultation today.
Types of Car Accident Damages
Car accident cases generally involve two types of damages: property damages and personal injury damages. Recovering property damages is the most straightforward aspect of any car accident case, since these damages are much easier to quantify than injury losses.
Personal injury damages encompass the following areas:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Lost income
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of consortium
- Mental anguish
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering, including whiplash, neck, and head injuries
Based on your current expenses, and how your injury is expected to impact your life into the future, our Little Rock car accident lawyers can help you calculate a reasonable amount of compensation to request in your claim.
Arkansas is one of the few states that allows injured victims to pursue punitive damages in drunk driving car accident cases. In order to win punitive damages, you must be able to prove that the defendant knew – or should have known – that their conduct would probably result in another person’s injury.
Ultimately, the best way to find out what your car accident claim is worth is to schedule a consultation with one of our attorneys. The Duncan Firm proudly serves the entire state of Arkansas. As a family-run business, we are personally invested in the outcome of your case, and will do whatever it takes to secure the compensation you deserve.
