Tractor-trailers typically weigh close to 80,000 pounds as compared to a 3,000 to 4,000 pound car.

Recoverable Wrongful Death Damages
The laws that govern wrongful death claims vary from state to state. Arkansas separates wrongful death claims into two sub-categories: the estate and the family claim. The estate claim is a claim by the estate of the deceased person. It seeks compensation for losses the deceased person suffered as a result of his or her death. Funeral and burial costs, medical bills for treatment of the deceased, pain and suffering the deceased endured before death, and the loss of the value of the deceased person’s remaining life – including wages likely earned can be paid in an estate claim.
The family claim is a claim by the surviving family members of the deceased. A family claim can seek compensation for losses the family members suffered as a result of losing their family member. Loss of the financial support of the deceased, loss of household services, and loss of care, comfort, and guidance can all be paid in a family claim.

Premises Liability (Slip & Falls)
Property owners have legal obligations to individuals who come on their property. This includes maintaining their property and structures on their property in a reasonably safe condition. If a property owner fails to meet these obligations, and an injury occurs, the property owner may be responsible. Slip and falland tripping accidents are some of the most common types of personal injury cases. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a property owner’s failure to maintain safe premises, you can be compensated for medical bills, lost wages, loss of income, pain, and emotional suffering.
Common Causes of Trip, Slip and Fall Accidents
With the exception of being exposed to hazardous chemicals and dog bites, most premise liability claims fall under the category of trip, slip, and fall accidents. A fall can result in severe injuries that require medical attention, including broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and more. These accidents may occur due to:
- Inadequate lighting
- Negligent or insufficient security
- An accumulation of ice or snow
- Spilled food or drink
- Torn, raised, or worn carpeting
- Obstructions, such as electrical cords
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Unsafe/unmarked building conditions
- Water or substance on floor
To file a premises liability claim, you must show that the owner of the property acted negligently in some way. Our lawyers understand how to establish that a certain condition on the property was “unreasonably dangerous.” We can show that the property owner or manager was aware or should have been aware of the condition prior to your injury.
