Serious car accidents can be tragic enough if injuries occur, but if the accident occurs for an avoidable reason like drunk driving, the victims can be left with emotional wounds as well. Emotional injury can impact an individual’s life for an extended period of time and even inhibit the victim’s ability to heal his or her physical injuries. Unfortunately, one recent drunk driving accident in Alaska seriously injured one man.
Alaska residents are no strangers to small planes and helicopters transporting both people and supplies into the more remote areas of the state. As a result, the news of a small plane crash is perhaps more common that in other areas of the country. One recent accident took the life of the pilot and may have been the result of a serious mechanical error.
Car accidents that are serious enough can often leave the individuals involved with injuries, but if the collision is head on, the severity of the injuries can drastically increase. Typically, head on collisions leave those involved with serious injuries that can inhibit their ability to perform daily tasks, such as go to work. While this has obvious financial consequences for the victim, it can cause emotional pain as well. Unfortunately, one car accident in Alaska recently took the life of one person and left two others with serious injuries.
Car accidents can be tragic enough if both vehicles involved are the standard size. However, if an individual involved is driving a vehicle such as a motorcycle or ATV, the injuries can be much more severe. The lack of protection that these types of vehicles offer can often put the occupants at risk of serious injury. An Alaska woman may end up facing a wrongful death claim after a recent accident took the life of someone riding an ATV.
Airplanes are generally a safe way for individuals to travel. However, when the pilot is not aware of their surroundings, it can lead to devastating accidents if there are bystanders in the nearby area. If an individual is struck by an airplane, they can often suffer serious injuries or worse. Unfortunately, one man is in the hospital in Alaska after he was the victim of an aviation accident involving a floatplane.
