Arkansas Personal Injury Resources

Arkansas is also known as “The Natural State” because it offers residents and tourists a variety of opportunities for outdoor recreation. The state has a diverse geography ranging from high mountainous areas, densely forested land, and lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. Arkansas’s judicial branch has five court systems, the Arkansas Supreme Court, Arkansas Court of Appeals, Circuit Courts, District Courts, and City Courts.

Arkansas has an estimated population of 2,949,131 and, in 2010, had a total of 118,564 civil incoming cases. This is 4,058 cases per 100,000 of the total population. Of the total civil cases, 4.766 are tort cases, tried in the Circuit court. The tort trend in Arkansas seems to fluctuate but has gone down in 2010.

Like the rest of the country, in Arkansas, a signification portion of civil cases in the state courts are personal injury cases. These claims, also called tort claims, all involve some kind of injury to a person or to property due to the actions of another entity. Many lawsuits fall under this category, including medical malpractice, construction accidents, defective products, and traffic accidents. Traffic accidents generally make up the bulk of personal injury claims, and this is certainly the case in Arkansas.
