Personal InjuryWhen people are injured because of the actions of a negligent person, it gives rise to different legal rights and options that must be enforced in order for justice to be obtained. When someone suffers broken bones as a result of a negligent or reckless act, that injured person could be facing a situation of long-term pain and suffering. If you or someone you love has been injured in this manner by someone else, seek the immediate help of Alaska personal injury lawyers. Below is a look at what type of challenges someone in this position could face.
Medical MalpracticePeople have been taught from their earliest memories to trust the medical care that theyâ€™re being given by professionals. In the vast majority of situations, this trust is well placed. Unfortunately, doctors can and do make mistakes from time to time, and when this situation arises it can be extremely difficult for those who have been harmed to know what to do next. The first step in response to this situation should always be to contact an experienced Alaska medical malpractice lawyer, and below is a brief introduction to this issue.
Dog BitesUnfortunately, the statistics regarding dog bites are daunting. Almost 5 million people every year are bitten by dogs in the United States, and approximately 1,000 people every day are injured badly enough by a dog bite that they must visit the local emergency room. In addition, another 500,000 dog bites require other forms of medical attention, and dozens of people are killed every year in these attacks. In addition, the age group with the highest number of incidents regarding dog bites is boys between the ages of 5 and 9.
Property DamageNot only does Alaska law require that all drivers be covered by auto insurance, but there are specific amounts of coverage that must be in place to meet the minimums that the law calls for in regards to motorists. Specifically, the minimum coverage required for liability insurance is $50,000/$100,000 for bodily injury or death and $25,000 for coverage of property damage.
Workers CompensationWorker's compensation provides those workers injured on the job, or suffering from a disease while in the course of employment, benefits that include payments based on the employee's wages and total or partial disability. Unfortunately, this alone may not be enough compensation.
Hit and Run
DUI/DWIThe issue of drunk driving has been a mainstay in the media for many years now in an attempt to bring the number of people who engage in this dangerous behavior down. While many experts claim that this effort has been worthwhile, the statistics in Alaska show that drunk driving in the state remains a serious problem.
Wrongful DeathWhen a lawsuit involves wrongful death there is always extreme emotional anguish. Death is not an easy subject to deal with for anyone, and those mourning the loss of a loved one due to the negligence of another are usually at a loss to piece together their lives. Not only has their loved one passed away, but by definition a "wrongful death charge" means that someone else caused the death. In other words, this is not a natural death, and the deceased are now cheated out of fulfilling their life's dreams and ambitions. Wrongful death is not an easy situation to deal with, and seeking financial compensation for a wrongful death is not the first thing a bereaved person thinks about.

MisdemeanorsTexting while driving is a misdemeanor in Alaska as long as the offense does not cause injury to another person. When it does, it can be a felony charge. Drivers are allowed to send and receive messages if their vehicles are stopped.
AssaultThe recent case of a 17-year-old Anchorage boy sentenced to a year in prison after a distracted-driving collision speaks to the tragic consequences that can occur when someone chooses to text and drive. Murphy Madison Gross, 17, was convicted of criminally negligent homicide and three misdemeanor assault charges as part of a plea agreement. He was said to have been smoking marijuana with friends after stealing his father's car and driving without a license.
