Car accidents happen throughout Alaska. Although the number of fatal accidents is trending downward, there are still approximately 250-300 serious crashes and around 3,000 minor collisions annually. If you are hurt or, heaven forbid, a family member is killed in an auto accident, reach out to the Best Personal Injury Company to protect your rights and be compensated for your injuries.
The Best Personal Injury Company will be able to prosecute not only your auto accident claims, but also ones for slip and falls, wrongful death, train accidents, aircraft accidents, assault, battery, and more. Essentially, if you are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, there is a law firm out there to help you bring your claim.
Bringing your claim starts well before the filing of a lawsuit. For example, in Alaska, there are certain steps you must take following an auto accident, such as (1) assessing the damage to your vehicle and the other vehicles involved, (2) exchanging information with the other driver or drivers including, the other driver's name, phone number, address, license plate number, driver's license number, and insurance company name, (3) submitting a Certificate of Insurance within 15 days, (4) contacting the local police department (or Alaska State Troopers, if appropriate) and (5) mailing in an Alaska Motor Vehicle Crash Form to the Alaska DMV or State of Alaska.
When it comes to your lawsuit, the best personal injury law company will make sure you don’t contravene any of Alaska’s relevant laws. The most common ruining of a lawsuit takes place when a plaintiff fails to start the lawsuit within two years from the date the accident happened. If you miss this deadline, you will not likely be able to proceed with your case.
Your attorneys must also be able to handle the other parts of a lawsuit, from serving the complaint to conducting discovery to making relevant motions to trial. Even though more than 95% of cases will settle before trial, an attorney who cannot try a case may be taken advantage of during settlement negotiations because the other party knows of such a shortcoming.
For these reasons and more it is vitally important to retain an attorney in Wasilla who can successfully handle your case from start to finish. Finding these lawyers may be a somewhat time-intensive task, as you should research and interview multiple candidates, performing a thorough search to find the best is in your interests and likely to lead to the best result.
