Committed Representation in Personal Injury Lawsuits

Personal injury claims can arise from various situations involving negligence. Motor vehicle accidents, workplace incidents, as well as defective products and medical malpractice can all lead to serious injuries. These injuries also result in financial losses whereby victims need compensation for medical bills, loss of income or earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering damages. Lawsuits are sometimes the only way these victims can recover such costs from the parties responsible for their harm. Personal injury attorney Sean Brown fights tirelessly on behalf of his clients in Anchorage and throughout Alaska to make sure they have the compensation they need and deserve.

Car Accidents

Many claims of personal injury in Alaska are due to car accidents. Injuries from a collision can be catastrophic and include head trauma, neck or back injuries, as well as broken bones. Usually, an irresponsible driver is at-fault for these accidents and should be held accountable for their negligence. Negligence occurs when a party breaches their duty of reasonable care to another, that causes the victim’s injuries, and results in damages. Accidents caused by distracted driving, excessive speeding, intoxication, or other reckless actions are usually deemed due to negligence. Even if a victim is partially responsible for their own injuries, legal action can still be available. In Alaska, under the “pure comparative negligence” rule, compensation is awarded based on each party’s degree of fault. Consulting a knowledgeable Anchorage personal injury lawyer at the Alaska Accident and Injury Law Center of the Brown Law Firm, LLC can help you determine what legal options you have following an accident.

Motorcycle Collisions

Motorcyclists are some of the most at-risk of devastating, life altering injuries on the road. Motorcycles do not offer the protections of other motor vehicles, and so when involved in a collision with a truck or standard car, a motorcyclist is the one likely to be suffer the most harm. Drivers of other vehicles are also the ones usually at-fault for these accidents. Failing to yield the way, or otherwise disregarding motorcyclists’ right to share the road can result in serious collisions. In Alaska, personal injury claims in must be filed within two years of the date of injury. In the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, evidence needs to be collected and preserved. Proper investigation into the circumstances surrounding a collision is also important, making timing vital in these cases.

Truck Accidents

Being involved in an accident with a truck can be an overwhelming experience. Claims arising out of a truck accident are more complex than those of other motor vehicle accidents. Various parties such as trucking companies as well as insurance carriers and, sometimes, manufacturing companies can be involved in a single lawsuit. Additionally, there are specific laws and regulations that govern the trucking industry. Anchorage personal injury attorney Sean Brown has the experience and knowledge to make sure your rights are zealously advocated for when up against these large interests.

Getting Justice for Sexual Assault Survivors

After suffering sexual abuse or a sexual assault, victims are often left with deep emotional trauma. Sometimes criminal charges are not enough, or even available, for those seeking justice. Pursuing a civil claim might be necessary for survivors of sexual abuse to recover the sense of power they have lost. Additionally, these victims may need financial assistance for ongoing medical treatment, therapy, loss of enjoyment in life, and other forms of pain and suffering. Aside from the primary offender, other parties may be legally liable for a sexual assault victim’s harm. In cases of child sexual abuse, schools or daycares responsible for the safety of their students could bear some responsibility. Businesses owners who owe a duty to their customers to provide an environment free of dangerous conditions could also be held accountable. Personal injury lawyer Sean Brown and his team at the Alaska Accident and Injury Law Center are committed to making sure those who are subject to sexual assault in Anchorage or surrounding areas get the care and comprehensive legal representation they need to move forward.

Wrongful Death

If you’ve lost a loved one due to a fatal accident, seeking legal action is often the furthest thing from your mind. But it is also important to make sure those who have caused another’s death are held responsible. In Alaska, family members do not have the right to directly file a wrongful death claim. Only the personal representative of a victim’s estate can pursue this action on behalf of the victim. However, damages awarded in a wrongful death claim are usually dispersed to any surviving spouses, children and other immediate family members who depended on the victim for their livelihood. Often this compensation is vital in covering the costs of funeral or burial arrangements, outstanding medical bills, and other lost support. 

Slip and Fall

Slip and fall cases in Alaska revolve around premises liability law. This area of law holds property owners responsible for maintaining safe conditions to prevent accidents. In Alaska, these cases often occur due to icy conditions, uneven terrain, or poor maintenance. The determining factor in such cases is usually whether the property owner knew, or should have known, about the dangerous condition and failed to remedy it. Alaska follows the comparative negligence rule, meaning the amount of compensation an injured party can recover is reduced by their percentage of fault. For example, if a jury finds that you’re 20% at fault for your slip and fall, you’ll only be able to recover 80% of your damages. It is essential for those pursuing slip and fall claims in Alaska to understand these legal nuances to navigate their cases effectively.
