    other passenger on the bus grab the wheel of the bus making the bus crash into a ditch off side of the freeway.

    David’s Answer

    Ordinarily you would have to prove fault on behalf of the driver in order to collect against Greyhound. However, because Greyhound is a common carrier they may have strict liability under Arkansas law. I suggest you contact an experienced Arkansas personal-injury attorney, like myself, for a free consultation.

    The most important thing is to seek medical attention to document the injury. Next, consult with an experienced Arkansas personal-injury attorney. Insist on a free consultation. Do not give a recorded statement to the adjuster for the insurance company insuring the at fault driver. I agree with the other answers you have received.

    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.

    David’s Answer

    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
