If you find yourself in a situation where you have lost a loved one, first let us say we are deeply sorry. No words can heal the pain you are experiencing.
Secondly, if you have lost a family member due to an accident involving an 18-wheeler (often referred to as a semi-truck or tractor trailer), you may not know where to turn. However, it’s important for you to know you have options, and you should know your rights.
Arkansas’ wrongful death statues allow surviving family members to seek compensation for loss of financial support, mental anguish and loss of companionship. While nothing will bring back your family member, you should not have to suffer the financial burdens placed on you by the loss of a loved one.
In Arkansas alone, there are many dangerous roadways and interchanges that are precarious under the best circumstances. If the driver of a truck is being careless, driving while tired or otherwise impaired, or speeding to make a delivery – it’s definitely a recipe for tragedy.
Each year there are hundreds of accidents on I-40 and I-49 alone. Many of these accidents involve tractor-trailer trucks and large commercial vehicles affiliated with companies with highly paid lawyers. You need someone who will fight for you!
