Did you or a loved one suffer injuries due to someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions?

If so, you could have the legal right to bring a claim for reimbursement of your damages against the at-fault party.

However, pursuing a personal injury claim can be a complicated process, especially when your injuries are severe.

It’s best to speak with a skilled Arkansas personal injury lawyer who can help. Harris Law Firm has been representing Arkansas clients just like you for over 40 years.

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?

A personal injury claim refers to a legal claim brought against a party because their intentional, reckless, or negligent act caused harm to another. Personal injury claims include vehicle accidents, premises liability cases, dog bite incidents, and medical malpractice claims.

To prove an intentional tort, you must prove the party you are suing intended to cause the harm. 

Negligent personal injury claims are more common. To hold a party liable for negligence, you must prove the following:

  • Duty of care—the party you are suing must owe you a duty of care,
  • Breach of duty—the party you are suing must have breached this duty,
  • Causation—the breach of duty must be the cause of the accident or incident, and
  • Damages—you must have suffered damages, such as personal and financial injuries.

At Harris Law Firm, our seasoned personal injury attorneys will gather evidence, analyze the facts, and calculate your damages. We tailor your case strategy to maximize your financial compensation.

How Should I Choose a Personal Injury Attorney?

Choosing the right personal injury lawyer can be a daunting task. What should you consider when picking one?


Choose a law firm with a background in handling cases like yours. Make sure the law firm has experience in handling personal injury cases. A government compliance lawyer is likely not the best option for personal injury cases (and vice versa).

In addition to the law, make sure the lawyer has experience in the legal processes of Arkansas. You don’t want to miss any deadlines or file incorrect documents.

At Harris Law Firm, personal injury law is one of our major focus areas and our attorneys have experience with Arkansas courtroom protocol, filing deadlines, and other aspects of the legal process.

Reputation in the Community

You want your law firm to be a reputable one. Ask around in your community. Talk to family, friends, and acquaintances. 

  • Have you ever heard of the law firm? 
  • Do they have experience with it? 
  • Do they know any stories about it?

Read reviews on Google or Avvo. Are they mostly positive or negative? 

Harris Law Firm has a formidable reputation in the community for excellence and fearlessness.

First Consultation

Most law firms offer a free initial consultation where they review your case and explain your legal options. This is your first opportunity to speak with a lawyer and ask questions. 

Speaking with a lawyer during the consultation is essential for you to gauge whether or not you feel comfortable with the lawyer.

 If you get stuck speaking with a paralegal, consider looking elsewhere. If the lawyer does not have time to sit with you for the consultation, this may be a sign of things to come.

We offer a free, no-obligation consultation with all clients where we can discuss your case and ways to proceed.

Trial Experience

Personal injury cases rarely go to trial. Most cases are settled through negotiations. However, if your case is one of the few that go to trial, you want your lawyer to have trial experience. You don’t want incompetent representation.

Therefore, ask about a potential lawyer’s trial experience. 

Our attorneys have extensive courtroom experience. If your case won’t settle, we’ll represent you to the finish line at trial.

If you recently suffered a personal injury, you shouldn’t face it alone. We want to hear from you, simply fill out the form below and we will contact you to set up a consultation. We just need some brief information:

Types of Cases Our Arkansas Injury Attorneys Handle

Our Arkansas personal injury lawyers handle a wide variety of claims. Some of the most common cases we routinely handle include the following.

Car Crashes

Car crashes can happen anywhere at any time, no matter how good your defensive driving skills are. If you suffered injuries in a car collision, it’s crucial to speak with an attorney, especially when you sustained severe damages.

Insurance companies look for any way to reduce their exposure and potential payout. Don’t let them offer you far less than your case is worth or try to deny your claim outright. We are well-versed in the tactics that insurance companies use in claims handling.

To recover full compensation, you need skilled representation on your side. Please speak with one of our car accident lawyers today to learn how we can help.

Truck Crashes

Large truck crashes tend to involve severe to catastrophic injuries. Fighting the commercial trucking industry requires specific experience and knowledge.

You need a personal lawyer in Arkansas who is not afraid to be aggressive and pursue the compensation you deserve. Harris Law Firm has years of experience handling Arkansas 18-wheeler crashes. Let us fight for the compensation you are owed.

Motorcycle Crashes

Insurance companies often mistreat motorcycle riders during the claims process. They are unfairly stereotyped, and some insurance adjusters are prejudiced against motorcycles.

Unfortunately, riders often suffer severe injuries given the lack of protection they have when compared to occupants in a passenger vehicle. You need a proficient Arkansas motorcycle lawyer who has experience getting motorcycle victims the compensation they deserve.

Dog Bites

Dog bite claims should be taken very seriously. Seemingly minor bites can still wind up causing a secondary infection and a large scar. Many victims require future medical treatment, including scar revision surgery.

Dog bite claims are also problematic because Arkansas doesn’t have a specific dog bite statute. A lack of a statewide regulation doesn’t mean there are no consequences for dog owners if their dog attacks someone.

But rules can vary from county to county, which is why you need a skilled Arkansas dog bite lawyer to assist.

Slip and Falls

Slip and falls can happen anywhere—parking lots, grocery stores, public sidewalks, etc. If you fell due to a hazard such as spilled liquids in a store or a big hole in the ground, you could have a claim for your damages against the property owner.

In general, property owners and businesses have a duty to keep their property reasonably safe for visitors. Proving liability in these cases can be challenging. Please don’t attempt to pursue a claim on your own; contact our personal injury lawyers instead.

Other Personal Injury Cases

The cases mentioned above are only a few of the types of personal injury matters we represent clients for in Arkansas. If you suffered injuries due to another party’s negligence, contact an Arkansas personal injury lawyer at Harris Law Firm to learn more about how best to proceed.

Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Claim

Our attorneys will help you calculate and pursue your damages, including the following:

  • Medical expenses,
  • Lost wages,
  • Loss of earning capacity,
  • Pain and suffering,
  • Loss of consortium, 
  • Emotional distress, and
  • Loss of enjoyment of life.

Don’t delay in bringing your claim. We don’t want you to miss the opportunity for financial recovery.
