Since its inception, Watts, Donovan & Tilley, P.A. has managed and handled litigation for injured Plaintiffs and has sued Defendants in both state and federal courts throughout Arkansas.

All of our lawyers are experienced in handling personal injury claims not only in the courtroom, but also in successfully advocating for our clients before both the Arkansas Supreme Court and Arkansas Court of Appeals regarding personal injury matters. With counsel handling both the defense and plaintiff’s side of litigation involving insurance companies and disputes, WDT is uniquely qualified to handle any personal injury claim.

On the defense side, we take a leading role in representing insureds and carriers in cases involving alleged soft tissue injuries and minor impact accidents. In that regard, our attorneys have been at the forefront in exposing unnecessary and unreasonable medical treatment in those and similar types of cases. Members of the Firm have been retained by most of the major insurance companies providing automobile insurance coverage in Arkansas and regularly represent their insureds. The lawyers of WDT have earned the reputation as specialists in insurance defense coverage, consultation, and litigation.

WDT currently represents several trucking firms doing business in Arkansas and are regularly called upon to assist in the investigation and defense of catastrophic accidents involving tractor trailers. We have successfully defended many of those companies in cases involving multiple accidents, smoke on the highway, shifting freight resulting in loss of control in accidents, improper or inadequate repairs, and inadequate lighting of trailers. WDT maintains a good working relationship with several accident reconstruction firms and IME physicians and are available to render legal advice at any time.

On the plaintiff side, we have been active in personal injury cases involving basic auto accidents to complex litigation regarding improper loading of tractor trailers causing catastrophic injury. WDT attorneys are also experienced in the prosecution of cases involving slip and fall injuries, bacterial contamination, chemical exposure, and catastrophic injuries from malfunctioning machines and equipment. We have been called upon by other lawyers to assist in ongoing cases and are available for consultation with regard to the prosecution of those claims.

Many clients and insurance companies involved in personal injury litigation are looking for alternatives to the courtroom. The lawyers at WDT are also experienced in pursuing case and claim resolution through alternative methods involving mediation, arbitration, or filing of declaratory judgment actions on behalf of our clients.
