Determining Liability in Auto Accidents
In the state of Arkansas, the person who caused the car accident is considered “at fault.” Sometimes, the cause of an accident is not clear, or an accident may be the result of multiple factors leading to shared fault. If you are found to be partly at fault for an auto accident, however, you are still able to recover damages as long as you are less than 50% at fault.
What are the common causes of car accidents?
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol
- Reckless driving
- Illegal or dangerous driving maneuvers
- Unsafe road conditions
- Defective auto parts
- Dangerous turns
- Following too closely
- Cell phone use, including texting
- Failure to yield
Determining fault after an accident is the responsibility of the insurance companies. Many insurance companies will try to say you are more at fault for an accident than you really are, or will work to devalue or outright deny your just claim. Our West Helena personal injury attorney can negotiate with insurance companies for you. We have extensive experience in this area of law and know how to aggressively advocate for you.
