Like other states, Arkansas has a statute of limitations that tells you how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit against a defendant. For most types of auto accident claims, you will have three years from the time of the accident to file a suit. If a wrongful death is involved, typically the statute of limitations provides three years from the date of death. Once three years have passed, a lawsuit would very likely be dismissed.
This statute is essentially a deadline on your case. At The Law Offices of Alan LeVar, we are personally committed to fighting on behalf of accident victims. The sooner you consult our experienced lawyers, the sooner we can begin investigating the accident to determine if you have a case. The sooner the better, as evidence, documentation and memories are still fresh in the immediate aftermath of a car crash.
Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be able to pursue damages for the following things:
- Medical expenses for treating your injury
- Lost wages from being unable to work
