  • I was just involved in a car accident that was not my fault. What should I do next?

    After the chaos and commotion of a car accident, it is important to keep a few things in mind to ensure that you protect your rights and act in your own best interest. First, be sure to gather contact information from the other driver. If the other driver’s insurance company tries to ask you for details about the incident, be sure to retain an Anchorage car accident attorney before you speak to them. Anything you say to the insurance company could be used against you later. Finally, visit a medical professional as soon as possible to address any injuries you may have sustained. You will want detailed medical records to use in your case later on.

    The most important thing is to get an attorney on your side quickly. He or she can guide you through the process step-by-step.

  • How much time do I have to file a claim after a car accident?
    When it comes to car accidents, time is of the essence. The sooner you file your claim, the better your chances of success. In Alaska, you have two years after the date of a car accident to seek compensation for injuries.
  • If I file a claim for my injury, am I going to have to go to court?
    Not necessarily – though it is possible. It all depends on the circumstances of the situation and how the other party and his/her insurance company or attorney reacts. Your case could be settled out of court by negotiating with the responsible party’s insurance company. If the parties cannot negotiate a settlement they agree on, a trial may be required. Our Anchorage personal injury attorney has experience representing injured clients both in and out of court.
  • I don’t think I was injured in my accident. Should I still see a doctor?
    Yes. Even if you don’t feel hurt immediately after the accident, some injuries take more time to appear or may cause future medical issues later on in life. It is important to have a medical professional assess your condition as soon as possible to provide evidence that may come in handy if injuries appear later.
  • I was the victim of a hit & run. What should I do?
    We understand how frustrating and confusing this sort of situation can be. To protect your rights, you will want to file a police report immediately and seek out anybody who witnessed the accident. Take careful notes of exactly what happened and then seek medical treatment. We also encourage you to retain the counsel of a skilled attorney who can help you seek recourse.
  • What happens if I reject a settlement offer?
    We always recommend having an attorney weigh in before accepting or rejecting a settlement offer from the other party. He or she can help you weigh your options and provide a reliable opinion about what may happen should you accept or reject. You will want to consider the types of injuries you incurred, your medical bills, and the negligent driver’s insurance policy limits, among other factors.
