    David’s Answer

    You should contact an attorney as soon as possible. As I understand your fact situation the person that died was your stepbrother. The issue is whether or not you, as a stepbrother, qualify as a wrongful death beneficiary under Arkansas's wrongful death statute.

    David’s Answer

    The circumstances you describe certainly warrant
    further investigation. All the hospital records and the autopsy report should be carefully to evaluate whether or not you have a viable claim. Most attorneys doing this type of work , the including myself, will review the records for no charge.

    You should contact an experienced Arkansas personal injury lawyer immediately. You should request a free consultation. In this situation almost all personal injury lawyers will handle the case on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not have to pay anything out of pocket and if there is a recovery the lawyer will receive a percentage of the recovery as a fee.

    The statute of limitations will be a crucial issue in your case. It is difficult to put a specific number as damages without further information. However, your case looks very promising. I recommend you contact an experienced Arkansas personal injury attorney immediately.

  • In a wreck where 3 people are victoms, and their damage exceeds 25000 max. Will it be split EVENLY 3 ways between not at fault ?

    Not at fault. Our vehicle value estimate before wreck $5400. 3 vehicles involved.

    David’s Answer

    Another issue to consider is whether any of the three victims have underinsured motorist coverage. If so, this coverage should pay bodily injury damages which each victims suffer above whatever compensation he or she may receive from the at fault driver's insurance.

    David’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorneys answers. I think the main issue will be whether the doctor adequately treated your infection, not that he negligently caused it. This issue can only be evaluated by a review of the records. I suggest you obtain all the records and have them reviewed by a experienced Arkansas medical negligence attorney

  • Chemical toxicity suit

    My husband wore a certain brand of contacts for several years. He rotated between three brands of solution. He used one major brand of solution for about 6 months straight. Out of nowhere he started losing vision in both eyes (one worse than the o...

    David’s Answer

    I believe unless his blindness comes back that your damages will not be enough to justify the expense of the lawsuit. However, I would do an Internet search on the brand of contacts in the brand of the solution to see if there's any pending litigation. If so, it might be economically feasible to contact the lawyers involved in that litigation.

    You should consult with an Arkansas lawyer experienced handling medical negligence cases. The personal representative of your grandmother's estate is the person with authority to pursue a wrongful death action on behalf of the statutory beneficiaries. Sorry for your loss.
