Personal Injury

The underlying purpose of Arkansas personal injury law is to compensate individuals who sustained injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence. Personal injuries can vary widely, and often include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, soft tissue injuries, or even simple bumps and bruises.


An individual can sustain personal injuries in a variety of accidents, from car and truck accidents to boating accidents to slip and falls. In any case, the personal injury plaintiff must prove that the at-fault party or parties acted unreasonably in causing the injuries and damages. The Arkansas personal injury process primarily involves the following:


  • Filing a claim
  • Attempting to negotiate a favorable settlement offer
  • Filing a lawsuit with the court
  • Litigating the case
  • Trying the case or pursuing alternative dispute resolution (for example, in cases where the insurance company refuses to place an acceptable settlement offer on the table)


If you or someone you love has sustained personal injuries in Arkansas that resulted from someone else’s negligence, the law may entitle you to recover monetary compensation. Personal injury cases can be long and complex, however, and you need a skilled, experienced litigation attorney by your side every step of the way. 

The Arkansas personal injury attorneys at the Burgess Law Firm can help to streamline the personal injury process for you and may bring your case to a favorable resolution via settlement, alternative dispute resolution or, if necessary, trial.
