Personal Injury

At Scott Emerson P.A., we understand that those who are involved in a personal injury case - either as a plaintiff or defendant - are undergoing a difficult time in their lives. Although automobile and trucking accidents commonly occur in Arkansas, they are complex and involve a variety of laws. It is important to hire an experienced attorney who will vigorously fight in court to protect your rights.

Mr. Emerson's experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants gives him a unique ability to understand and analyze both sides' arguments in a particular case, and he is equipped to handle the most catastrophic injuries and complicated cases. This ensures that, in any particular case he handles, he can anticipate and plan for what the other side will try to argue, and he understands how insurance companies will evaluate various cases.

Advice for Those Who Are Involved in a Personal Injury Case

If you are involved in a personal injury case as either a plaintiff or defendant, it is important to take certain steps to ensure that your rights and interests are protected. These steps include:

  • Keep copies of bills and statements.
  • Take photographs or your vehicle, and your injuries, the accident scene, and any other information that might be useful to help your case.
  • Hire a lawyer based upon his or her reputation, not on an advertisement you see.
  • Get well, and do not settle too quickly. Make sure you have reached the end of your healing period before you contemplate settling your claim. Many insurance companies want you to settle quickly. Imagine doing this, then later learning you need back or neck surgery. Imagine your feeling when you own health insurance company will not later do the surgery because they know it arose from an accident.
  • However, do not wait too long to seek legal assistance. Arkansas law allows you three years from the date of your injury in which you must file suit. Even if you are still healing from your injuries, seek legal counsel as soon as possible.
