Alaska Personal Injury Law

Personal injury is a broad area of law that covers many elements. At Crowson Law Group, we focus our practice on common personal injury accidents, as well as personal injury accidents that are unique to Alaska and its citizens. Whether an accident results in minor or serious personal injury, we want to serve where the need is greatest.

Fundamentally, personal injury is the result of the negligence of an individual(s) that results in the injury or harm of another person. Ultimately and legally as an injured person you have the right to recover compensation that is full and fair for the injuries you sustained as a result of the negligence of another person(s). The legal system in Alaska allows for such compensation to be recovered by an injured party. An injured person may be compensated for the following forms of damages:

  • Loss of past and current income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Medical expenses and bills
  • Physical injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Permanent disfigurement and scarring
  • Loss of normal life
  • Wrongful death
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

While compensation will not erase the fact that you were involved in an accident nor will it change the fact that you were injured, financial compensation is a provision in place to makes the person who has suffered injury or loss ‘whole’ by putting the person in the financial position they would have been had they not been injured in the first place.
