Little Rock personal injury attorney Alan LeVar often speaks to the reason his Arkansas attorneys fight so vigilantly for the rights of accident victims: Because this area of the law has the ability to vastly change or improve lives for the better.
And in the most tragic accidents, a personal injury lawyer can help restore a sense of normalcy and justice after someone is injured or died through no fault of their own.
Consider what happened to young Curren Coolas of West Chester, Pa. In an incident akin to those we litigate daily at the Law Offices of Alan LeVar, this 2-year-old boy died when a blonde wood dresser from Ikea tipped over and crushed him.
An child dies in the U.S. in this manner of “tip over” accident roughly every two weeks, and most victims are under age 5, according to The Washington Post and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Curren was one of two children who died in 2014 in incidents related to the same piece of Ikea furniture — the MALM chest. Ikea subsequently issued a public warning advising that their chests and dressers be anchored to the wall when children are present in the home. The stores also are offering free anchoring kits.
Whether it was a tip over, car accident or a less-common tragedy, you have rights and legal recourse after an injury that was not your fault, and the Arkansas personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan LeVar can help: (888) 220-7068.
