Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
The phrase “personal injury” refers to injuries due to another person’s intentional or negligent behavior. If you’ve been involved in an accident caused by another person or business and suffered an injury, you likely have a personal injury claim. However, not all accidents that cause injuries give rise to viable, personal injury claims.
Under Arkansas law, victims of personal injury incidents have a right to pursue compensation from the party or parties liable for the accident, but victims must prove that the defendant is liable for your damages. Proving liability requires plaintiffs to prove negligence. Negligence occurs when a party fails to use reasonable care under the circumstances to prevent an injury to another person.
Car Accident Attorney in Faulkner County
Car accidents are among the most common personal injury accidents in Faulkner County. Even if you are a safe driver, you can be injured by another negligent or reckless driver in seconds. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation by pursuing an insurance claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. An insurance company representative may begin contacting you soon after the car accident. Speaking to an attorney before speaking with the insurance company representative will help you avoid unintentionally admitting fault or otherwise adversely affecting your claim.

Representing Victims of Truck Accidents in Faulkner County
Due to their large size and heavy weight, commercial trucks can cause devastating injuries. For that reason, big truck drivers and their employers typically carry commercial truck insurance policies with higher limits. In many cases, following collisions involving big trucks, adjusters from the insurance company will visit the accident scene to attempt to prove their driver wasn’t at-fault for the accident. Victims are disadvantaged from the get-go.
Working with attorney Tim Reed will help you level the playing field and protect your legal rights. He understands the devastating effects big rig truck accidents can have on victims and their families. He will work diligently to investigate the facts of your case and gather evidence proving the at-fault party’s liability. With years of experience successfully negotiating with commercial truck insurance providers, he will pursue the compensation you need and deserve.
Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Motorcyclists do not have the same level of protection as other drivers on the road. When a motorcyclist collides with another vehicle, bicyclist, or stationary object, the results can be devastating. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), severe back injuries, spinal cord injuries, and road rash are only a few examples of the serious medical conditions victims can suffer in motorcycle accidents.
The recovery process for road rash can be painful, especially when the patient develops an infection. Many motorcycle accidents can be prevented if the other driver pays attention to the road. When drivers are distracted, intoxicated, or violating traffic safety laws, they are less likely to see a motorcyclist and may collide with him or her. If you’ve suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident that wasn’t your fault, attorney Tim Reed is prepared to advocate for your right to compensation.
Faulkner County Premises Liability Attorney
Slip and fall accidents, swimming pool accidents, and negligent security incidents are some of the many different types of premises liability cases attorney Tim Reed handles. When a property owner fails to use reasonable care to keep visitors reasonably safe, injured victims may have a valid claim for compensation against the property owner.
For example, suppose a business owner knows or should know about a dangerous condition on the property. In that case, the owner has a legal obligation to make the condition safe or warn customers. In cases where property owners know about violent crimes occurring on the property but fail to take reasonable measures to keep guests or customers safe, victims of crime may have a right to pursue compensation from the owner. If you’ve been injured by a dangerous condition on another person’s property, discussing your case with an attorney is essential.
