Motor vehicle accident in Alaska injured 3 motorcyclists

Alaska's road systems are not known for being extensive. However, wherever roads are located there is a chance that an accident could occur. The Alaskan weather adds to the dangers of driving, as well as operating any other type of vehicle. Unfortunately, this fact was prevalent when three bikers were injured in Alaska after a motor vehicle accident.

On Aug. 4, four motorcycles and a car crashed in a motor vehicle accident that injured three of the riders. According to Alaska State Troopers, the driver of the car -- an Anchorage resident -- applied her brakes to avoid the truck in front of her. The six motorcyclists behind the woman were not able to stop in time, and four of them collided with her car.

The car driver was uninjured after the accident, and one of the riders received minor injuries from the crash that were treated at the scene. Two other riders were transported to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital by ambulance. The collision is still under investigation by authorities.

After the investigation of the motor vehicle accident is complete, the motorcyclists who were injured may have the right to seek monetary compensation for their injuries. This will depend upon a careful review of the rights and responsibilities of all parties to the collision. If the cyclists are able to prove their injuries were caused by the negligence of the car driver, any monetary reimbursement order by a civil court in Alaska could be used by the riders to pay any medical bills and other financial damages that accrued. Medical bills of this type can often create a significant financial burden, and any reimbursement ordered would allow these riders to move past this traumatic experience sooner.
