Aviation accident adds to the number of deaths in Alaska

Airplanes can be a great way to transport people from one place to another, especially in Alaska where the roads are limited. However, if the pilot acts in a negligent manner for whatever reason, it can quickly create situations that can turn into horrific accidents. These accidents can leave the victims injured or even killed, depending on the severity. Unfortunately, the injuries and fatalities from being involved in an aviation accident have increased for one company in Alaska.

Nome hit-and-run could give rise to wrongful death claim

Pedestrians are almost always at risk of being involved in a tragic mishap when they walk near a road, and when they are out at night under reduced visibility, it can be even more dangerous. Drivers do not always pay attention to their surroundings, and those traversing the side of the road may be especially vulnerable. Unfortunately, an accident recently resulted in a pedestrian's death in Nome. The mishap could open the door to a civil wrongful death claim under Alaska law.

Wrongful death of motorcyclist occurs in Alaska

Motorcycles can be a fun fuel-efficient alternative to a regular car if the person is comfortable and can safely operate a motorcycle. However, the lack of protection that the motorcycle provides can sometimes be disheartening even if the rider is experienced and safe. If another driver causes an accident and the motorcyclist is involved, the rider can be seriously injured or even killed. Unfortunately, one car accident recently caused the wrongful death of a man in Alaska.

Student`s death in car accident may lead to wrongful death claim

Receiving news of the death of one's daughter while she was a passenger in someone else's car would naturally be a huge shock. In addition, the parents may have many questions relating to the circumstances of the accident, especially when the police have cleared the driver of the other vehicle from all wrongdoing. Although nothing can replace the deceased loved one, Alaska parents may consider filing a charge of wrongful death against the driver of the car in which their daughter was traveling as a passenger.
