Arkansas Car Accidents
According to latest report from the Arkansas State Police, there are nearly 7,454 car wrecks that occur in Fort Smith every year. It is scary to think that over 700 of our friends, neighbors and family members are injured right here in Fort Smith car accidents every year. Scary, but true.
An auto accident seems unlikely, until it happens to you. Then, you realize first-hand the devastating effects one can have on your life. Below are some Arkansas accident statistics that may bring it into perspective. Over the past decade, public roads throughout Arkansas have seen an average of:
- 66,000 crashes per year
- 47,000 injuries per year
- 628 crash fatalities per year
- 210 alcohol-related crash fatalities per year
Thankfully, those numbers have been trending downward over the past few years, but they are still a sobering reminder of the dangers lurking on roadways.
Do You Need an Attorney?
If you were in a car accident, you may be wondering if it is even necessary to hire an attorney – and in some cases, it may not be. However, in other cases, an attorney’s assistance may be absolutely critical in getting you fairly compensated for your injuries and losses. Determining whether you could benefit from hiring a lawyer can often be figured out in a short phone call or a quick consultant. Most firms, including ours, offer this consultation as a free service.
If you’ve suffered bodily injuries, moderate-to-severe damage to your vehicle and/or other losses, it will probably be in your best interest to hire a legal professional. An experienced lawyer can make sure that you aren’t being taken advantage of and that you’re getting what you deserve. That’s because personal injury isn’t about getting more than you deserve, it about getting all that you’re owed.
Don’t expect the insurance company to take care of everything. Remember, insurance companies are for-profit businesses that keep those profits high by paying out as little as possible. Matters may be complicated further if the driver that caused the accident didn’t have car insurance or didn’t have enough to cover all your damages.
Why Medlock and Gramlich, LLP?
If you’ve seen lawyer ads on TV or visited another lawyer’s web page, you’ve probably seen the same promises and claims repeated over and over.
