Hurt In or Around Wasilla?


There are a lot of things to do in Wasilla, which is part of what makes it such a great area. Attorneys In Wasilla Alaska, however, may view things somewhat differently. The Museum of Alaska Transportation shows the development of transportation in the area, while attorneys may look at it as a series of transportation accidents that led to important improvements. Lake Lucille and Lake Lucille Park are beautiful places to enjoy, but lawyers may view it as a place where boating accidents and drownings are likely. Alaska Live Steamers? Train accidents. Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race? Dog bites.

Yup, it isn’t easy being an attorney, because you are constantly exposed to people being hurt, even from what are supposed to be the greatest things in life. But these “jaded” attorneys likely have the experience necessary to help you when your great experiences take a downturn and, as a result, you are injured.

For example, let’s say you are involved in a car accident. Attorneys In Wasilla Alaska will not miss the two-year deadline by which you must file your lawsuit. And quality attorneys will perform a full investigation so that, when the time for trial comes, they have (i) all incident and accident reports, (ii) photographs of the accident scene, the conditions of the cars involved, photos of injuries and anything else relevant, (iii) all medical records and proof that the injuries were caused by the accident (such as a doctor’s testimony), (iv) a concrete story to tell the jury, through witness testimony, about how the accident was not at all the plaintiff’s fault but instead was entirely the other driver’s fault.

And how about a boating accident? Whose fault was it? Was there another reckless boater on the water? Was there an engineering issue that led to a jetty in a place nobody could tell? This information is critical to an attorney bringing a proper claim against another boater or a municipality or other government organization, for which there might be very specific time limitations to bring a claim earlier than the two-year statute of limitations described above.

Dog bites? That’s an interesting one. Just because you were bit does not necessarily mean you are entitled to compensation from the owner. Instead, you have to demonstrate that there was some reason the owner knew or should have known that the dog was likely to bite. Perhaps this can be demonstrated through prior biting incidents or other aggressive tendencies. On the other hand, even building managers who are aware of a dog’s vicious propensities can be held liable for injuries arising out of a resident’s dog’s biting if he or she was aware of the likelihood of such an incident and did nothing about it.

As you can see, there is knowledge, detail and creativity involved in prosecuting personal injury cases in Alaska. Attorneys in Wasilla Alaska know this and will work to make sure all of these goals are met.
