Little Rock Auto Accident Lawyers
Award-Winning Personal Injury Firm in Arkansas
Car wrecks and other types of auto accidents are the most common type of personal injury cases in Arkansas and across the country. Auto accidents can range from slight fender benders with no injuries to multiple-vehicle pileups on state highways. In 2018, a total of 492 people died in car accidents statewide. The Arkansas State Police have reported that close to 61,000 traffic accidents occurred in the state in 2014. Unfortunately, these accidents leave behind not only wrecked vehicles but often wrecked lives.
At Taylor & Taylor Law Firm, P.A., we understand the devastating effects individuals and their families can face after being involved in auto accidents. Our legal team is experienced in handling all types of car accident cases from those with minor injuries to those that result in catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths. If you’ve been hurt in a car accident, and it was someone else’s fault, we’ll do our best to help you recover. Even if the other driver didn't have insurance, didn't have enough insurance (known as an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim), or left the scene of the accident, we are often able to help our clients win a settlement or verdict.

Important Factors in Compensation Recovery
When you’ve been injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you’re entitled to compensation. In some instances, certain factors come into play when negotiating with insurance companies for a better and more just settlement.
If you think any of the following apply to your case, please let us know when you call so we can be on the lookout for evidence proving that one of these factors applies:
- The other driver was under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or prescription drugs (DUI/DWI)
- The other driver was on a work-related trip
- The other driver was texting and driving
- The other driver was speeding
- The other driver was drowsy/sleepy
- The other driver was distracted (cell phone usage, pets in the car, or other distracting actions)
- Icy or snowy road conditions
If we prove any of the factors above, we may be able to increase the damages you can recover!
We represent injury clients on a contingency-fee-basis, which means you won't owe any attorney's fee to our firm unless we recover for you in your case. Get started at (501) 267-9808 today.
Types of Compensation Available in Car Accident Cases
Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may recover a variety of damages. The term “damages” can refer to your actual injuries and losses, as well as any financial awards your case yields.
Damages you may be entitled to include:
- All of your medical expenses, both past and future. This includes surgeries, rehabilitation, physical therapy, medications, extended care, and more.
- Lost wages or income due to your inability to work while recovering.
- Loss of all future earnings if you have become permanently disabled and unable to work.
- Pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life.
