Handling All Types Of Motor Vehicle Accident Cases
There are seemingly endless ways to get injured in a car crash. Benton Gann has handled a wide range of cases including those involving:
- SUV collisions
- Truck (18-wheeler) accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Auto accident collisions involving bicyclists and pedestrians
- Accidents caused by a driver who is drunk, distracted or speeding
- Crashes involving ridesharing vehicles (Uber and Lyft)
- Commercial vehicles (delivery vans, shuttles)
There are many causes and contributing factors to auto accidents, but most can be primarily attributed to driver negligence. The driver who caused your injuries was likely doing something they knew to be dangerous behind the wheel or otherwise driving without adequate concern for the safety of others.
Seeking Compensation For Serious Injuries
Although cars are getting safer and more “crashworthy” over time, car accident injuries can still be devastating or life-changing. It may be practically necessary to file a lawsuit to ensure that your medical bills and other costs can be recovered if you have suffered any of the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia)
- Cuts and bruises leading to disfigurement
Attorney Gann will help you carefully catalog the costs related to your accident (medical bills, lost wages, reduced earning capacity, rehabilitation, etc.) and fight to secure a settlement or jury award that meets or exceeds those expenses.
What If You Were Partially At Fault?
Even if you didn’t cause the accident, you may have been doing something that made the crash more likely or made it more injurious. The good news is that being partially at fault won’t stop you from being able to seek compensation. Arkansas recognizes a legal doctrine known as modified comparative fault.
Under this system, you and the defendant may each be assigned a percentage of fault. If you win your case or settle, your compensation will be reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to you. If you were seeking $100,000 for the crash but were deemed 10% at fault, for example, you would still be entitled to $90,000 in damages.
