Skilled Fayetteville Car Accident Attorneys
Turning loss into a secure future
Every day, individuals and families see their lives changed forever by accidents involving cars and other vehicles such as trucks and motorcycles. The Martin Law Firm can help people navigate the changes brought on by vehicular damage.
Car and truck collisions account for more injuries nationwide than any other type of accident. In Arkansas alone, there were more than 60,000 automobile crashes with 571 fatalities and 28,000 injuries in 2010, according to the Arkansas State Police.
The skilled Fayetteville car accident attorneys of the Martin Law Firm have extensive experience handling vehicle, truck and motorcycle accident cases, including establishing fault and negotiating with the at-fault vehicle driver. In pursuing justice and fair compensation for our clients, the Martin Law Firm thoroughly investigates and handles all types of motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, trucking accidents and motorcycle accidents.
Getting legal help after a car accident
After obtaining medical help for injury suffered in a car accident, speaking with a personal injury lawyer in Fayetteville, Arkansas is a priority. Fragile evidence disappears quickly in all accidents—especially vehicle collisions. Weather, traffic, and time dispose of skid marks and debris created in car, motorcycle, and trucking accidents.
If possible, after an accident, take these steps to support a future legal claim:
- Take photographs of the accident scene including vehicle damage - your cell phone camera may be used if no other camera is available.
- Do not discuss the accident with bystanders (or anyone, including family members), but obtain contact information from witnesses
- Contact our office and do not sign anything or accept a settlement offer from an insurance company without first conferring with legal counsel.
Proving fault in Arkansas
Using evidence and witness testimony, the Fayetteville auto accident lawyers of the Martin Law Firm challenge attempts to downplay the extent of car accident damages and injuries. And through car accident reconstruction narratives, we help Arkansas juries understand who is responsible for the accident.
Proving fault is pivotal in achieving compensation for personal injury matters. Arkansas courts follow a statute of modified comparative negligence. This mean you can receive compensation for injuries suffered if you were responsible by 50 percent or less for the accident that caused your injury. Compensation awards are reduced by amounts equal to your percentage of fault.
The accident attorneys at the Martin Law Firm help victims of car accidents in Arkansas or product liability from a car accident gain justice and obtain proper compensation. With a peer-reviewed AV® Preeminent™ Martindale-Hubbell® rating for legal and ethical excellence, our firm has a successful track record holding negligent parties accountable for causing injuries and losses to the clients we represent.
