Pedestrian accidents almost always cause serious injury and death. The Pfeifer Law Firm has helped families through this difficult time. It is important that the facts of the pedestrian accident are fully understood and investigated. Oftentimes, we find that important information is not included in the accident report and the individuals involved as well as the investigating officer need to be interviewed as soon as possible to gather all the relevant facts.

Insurance companies often look for reasons to deny the claim or find fault with the pedestrian. It is important that an Arkansas injury lawyer become involved in the claim as soon as possible to make sure phony excuses by the insurance company do not jeopardize an injured person's personal injury claim.

Arkansas law mandates that certain additional insurance protections are available to cover funeral and medical expenses due to pedestrian accidents. Oftentimes, the Pfeifer Law Firm must point out the proper insurance statute in the Arkansas Code to an insurance company's adjuster to get the additional benefits paid.
