The new Arkansas Trauma system should save lives of Arkansas personal injury victims and decrease the delay in treatment of catastrophic injuries from car accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace accidents, train accidents, and other types of personal injuries. If you or a loved one has been the unfortunate victim of an accident in Arkansas, please contact an experienced Arkansas injury lawyer to discuss your legal rights so you can receive compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.
