What is the Basis for a Wrongful Death Claim in Arkansas?
A wrongful death claim may be based on any of the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Intentional assault; homicide
- Defective and malfunctioning products
- Medical malpractice
- Equipment malfunctions/Construction accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Animal attacks

There are many ways that personal injury accidents occur. When an injury results in death, the victim’s family may pursue the claim on their behalf. The case honors the life of your loved one. It also holds the person or party accountable for causing the death.
As your lawyers, we evaluate the situation for all ways to pursue a just result. We are passionate about helping families seek justice for wrongful death, and we will fight on your behalf.
Proving a Wrongful Death Claim
To claim wrongful death compensation, the family bringing the claim must prove the following:
- The defendant acted wrongfully. A wrongful act can be as simple as being negligent – or a lack of ordinary care. A case can be based on intentional assault and battery, but it doesn’t have to be. Many claims are based on accidents.
- An accident occurred. The defendant’s wrongful actions must be the cause of an accident or an incident. Exposure that results in disease can count, too.
- Death results. The wrongful act and harm that follows must be the cause of death to the victim.
- Damages. In all wrongful death cases, the losses are great. We ensure that your losses are fully valued.
Our lawyers work diligently to prove every part of your case. A wrongful death claim can be complex. We investigate the facts and carefully build the evidence to make your claim a success.
Claiming Wrongful Death Compensation
When you lose a loved one unexpectedly, it is a great loss for your family. Above all else, it is a personal loss. You no longer have the love, guidance and companionship of your loved one. These losses are at the heart of any wrongful death claim.
In addition, you have financial losses like burial expenses and final medical expenses. Your loved one is no longer there to provide financial support and household contributions.
In Arkansas, victims may claim many types of damages, including:
- Lost income
- Lost care, guidance and companionship
- Education and training
- Funeral/burial costs
- Medical expenses before death
- Pain and suffering of the victim
