Representing Injured Workers in Arkansas
Have you been injured on the job? You may have a worker’s compensation (“worker’s comp”) claim for lost wages and medical expenses you may have incurred because of an on-the-job injury. A Little Rock worker’s compensation attorney affiliated with The Brad Hendricks Law Firm can help protect your rights.
If you were injured at work due to the negligence of someone other than your employer, you may have a personal injury claim against the responsible party, even if your injury was caused by a dangerous or defective product in the workplace.
With experienced attorneys skilled in the areas of worker’s compensation and personal injury or products liability law, The Brad Hendricks Law Firm has the resources to coordinate and combine claims and cases to help ensure that you are compensated to the fullest extent of the law for those injuries.

Handling All Aspects of a Worker’s Compensation Claim
Our law firm provides counsel well experienced to handle worker’s compensation claims against private industry, state and local government employers, and their insurers. Our attorneys handle all aspects of work accident injury claims, whether requiring an initial worker’s compensation claim, an appeal through the various levels of the Arkansas Worker’s Compensation Commission and the appellate courts, or a complex lawsuit against the manufacturer of a dangerous or defective product in federal or state court.
Additionally, we can provide general legal advice for questions such as:
- How do I report a workplace injury?
- When do my benefits expire?
- Can I get treatment from my own doctor?
- Can I receive benefits even if I return to work?
- What resources are available for job training?
- Can I collect worker’s compensation benefits for a toxic injury or repetitive motion injury, such as carpal tunnel?
See our Worker’s Compensation FAQ for answers to common workplace accident questions.
Third-Party Injury Lawsuits
Arkansas employees cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against their employers for workplace injuries suffered. However, if someone other than their employer is responsible for the accident, injured workers may be able to file a third-party injury claim. For example, if a construction worker falls from a scaffold, he or she may be able to file a personal injury claim against the manufacturer if it was found that the scaffold design was defective.
We do not charge an attorney fee for personally consulting with you about your workplace accident case. We can help determine if you have a personal injury case in addition to being able to file for worker’s compensation benefits.
