Alaska car accident puts 1 person in the hospital

Accidents happen daily across the country, and sometimes they are unavoidable. However, many accidents that occur on the roads of the United States are caused by the negligence of one or more drivers and are therefore often avoidable. One car accident in Alaska recently sent one of the individuals involved to the hospital with major injuries.

The accident involved two cars and occurred on Dec. 18. A 23-year-old woman was driving a small pickup truck Wednesday morning when she lost control of her vehicle and fishtailed, crossed the center line and struck an oncoming car. The other driver was a woman who was 22 years old. She was transported to a hospital by helicopter soon after the accident took place with major injuries.

The 22-year-old was in critical condition because of her injuries from the accident. The other driver was taken to another hospital for her injuries,, which did not appear to be as serious. The accident shut down the Alaskan highway for several hours because of the severity of the wreckage.

The female driver who was critically injured in the accident may have the right to seek monetary injuries for her injuries from the car accident. If compensation is awarded by the Alaska judicial system, it could be used by the woman to pay for any of her medical bills as well as provide her with a source of income while she is out of work. Even when an injured victim is out of work, bills will continue needing to be paid, which can put a great amount of stress on someone in this situation.
