Alaska auto accident can cause serious injuries

A vehicle accident in Alaska can be life-changing, depending on how serious a victim's injuries are. In addition to causing physical injuries that might prevent a person from being able to work, an auto accident may also cause emotional distress. It is within the rights of an injured accident victim to seek to hold a negligent party accountable for the injuries he or she is believed to have caused.

Injuries commonly suffered in a car crash include injuries to the neck, back or spinal cord. A spinal cord injury can cause a person to become paralyzed from the waist down and, thus, lose his or her ability to walk. Victims may also suffer head and brain injuries. Brain injuries can potentially affect a person's cognitive function and can even lead to changes in a person's behavior or emotional reactions.

Other possible crash-related injuries include scars, burns, and broken or fractured bones. A qualified attorney can help you to identify the root cause of an accident and then determine whose negligence contributed. In addition, your attorney can explain Alaska's comparative negligence law and the effects it can have on your case.

Damages awarded from a successfully litigated personal injury claim can help you pay your hospital bills and compensate you for the loss of wages and other expenses stemming from an auto accident. In order for you to prevail in court, there must be evidence supporting negligence on the part of another party who was involved in the crash. Only when negligence can be proven is a judge likely to award compensation to an injured party.
