Have you or someone you love been seriously injured in an accident? Did someone’s negligent actions cause your injuries? If so, you may be owed compensation.
When you suffer significant injuries in an accident, the impact of those injuries and your recovery can be felt in all areas of your life. Your injuries can affect your ability to work and your future employment prospects, and the excessive costs of your recovery can ruin your finances. If someone else hadn’t caused the accident that you were hurt in, then you wouldn’t have the financial, emotional, and physical weight of your injuries placed solely on your shoulders. You shouldn’t have to carry that weight. The person who injured you should be held responsible.

Compensation You May Be Entitled to Receive
After you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else, you have the right to seek full compensation for your injuries from the person who injured you. A determination has to be made as to who was at fault for your injuries because the at-fault party is the one who would have to compensate you.
There are two types of compensation, or compensatory damages, that you may be entitled to receive from the person who injured you: economic damages and non-economic damages. These damages would cover a number of the financial and emotional costs that you have been burdened with as a result of your injuries.
Economic damages cover your:
- Medical bills
- Loss of wages or income
- Loss of future earning capability
- Repairs or replacement of your damaged property
Non-economic damages cover your:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of personal relationships (referred to as loss of consortium)
- Loss of quality of life
A third type of compensation that you may be awarded is punitive damages. These damages are only awarded in trials in certain cases where the responsible party acted with malice or reckless disregard or intentionally sought to harm you or your property. When these aggravating factors exist in an accident, the court will seek to punish the responsible party to deter them and the public from ever repeating the same actions and possibly injuring others as a result. Your McCutchen Napurano - The Law Firm attorney will advise you whether your case meets the qualifications for punitive damages.
In Arkansas, your share of fault for the accident is taken into account when determining how much compensation you may be entitled to. This is due to Arkansas’ modified comparative fault law. This law states that you may still be able to recover damages if you are injured in an accident that you share some responsibility for. But your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of fault in the accident, up to 50 percent. If you are more than 50 percent responsible for the crash, the law prohibits you from obtaining any compensation at all.
For example, suppose you were seriously injured in a car accident. After an investigation into the accident, it’s determined that you were 30 percent responsible for the accident. Your compensation would be reduced by your percentage of fault, or 30 percent. So, if your total compensation should be $100,000, it would be reduced by $30,000 to $70,000.
