recover compensation if partially responsible for a car accident

In many cases, you can still recover compensation for your injuries even if you were partially responsible for the crash. However, the amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive may fluctuate based on your degree of fault.  

It is also important to note that each state has its own unique laws regarding how fault is determined in car accidents. In some states, a concept known as comparative negligence is used. Here in Arkansas, the modified comparative negligence doctrine applies. We’ll tackle how that figures into your accident case when you were partially at fault for it below.

what an adequate warning is

Whether someone’s talking about a shut-down factory, a swimming pool, a condemned house, a rugged trail at a nature preserve, or ramps at a skate park, each of these places may pose injury dangers to those who visit them. Most property owners have a duty of care to keep their premises reasonably safe to minimize the chances of someone getting hurt. However, their responsibility to do so generally varies, depending on why the injured individual was present on the property.   

When you’ve suffered injuries while visiting someone else’s property, you may be hopeful that you can recover your medical costs and other incident-related losses from its owner. However, you’ll need to have a firm understanding of what is an adequate warning from a property owner and its impact before determining whether recovery of compensation is possible.

Saying Goodbye to John Coulter, Partner at McMath Woods

Published on Apr 25, 2022 at 12:47 pm in Firm News.

We are saddened by the passing of McMath Woods partner John Coulter. John passed away on April 22, 2022, after having lived with lung cancer since January 2020.

John was truly a “lawyer’s lawyer” and a tremendous advocate of the civil legal system. He believed that everyone deserved to have legal representation. John really cared, and you could see that care in every case he handled and everyone he helped. He always put his family and community first. He served as Pro Bono Counsel as well as volunteered at the Little Rick School District where he never missed an opportunity to read to a roomful of students or pitch in wherever help was needed.

John leaves behind a legacy of kindness and generosity toward others. Our thoughts and prayers are with Laura, Jonathan, and the entire Coulter family.

To learn more about John and his memorial services which will take place on May 16th, 2022, you may view his obituary here.

Making the decision that a nursing home is the best place for your loved one is never easy. When you choose a facility to care for, support, protect, and create a warm home environment for an older adult you care about, you trust that things will go well even when you can’t be there. But no matter how ideal a nursing home may be, you still need to be involved in your family member or friend’s life to make sure they receive the care and attention they need—and that’s right for them as an individual. Concerned relatives of an older adult who moved into a long-term care facility may be asking: How can I check on my loved one in a nursing home?

What to Do After a T-Bone Accident
Even when there are stop signs or traffic lights, intersections can be tricky places to navigate. Any time that you are dealing with multiple lanes and flows of traffic there is the potential for serious harm, including T-bone accidents.

After the initial impact in a T-bone accident, one car is often pushed off its original course and into other lanes of traffic. This creates an opportunity for a second impact, more injuries, additional vehicle damage, and even death.
