Who is responsible for the losses sustained in a plane crash?

Even though traveling by plane is considered to be one of the safest forms of transportation, aviation accidents are fairly common in Alaska. This could be, in part, due to the dangerous weather conditions that often affect the state, but these incidents may also be the result of various other issues. When a plane crash occurs, victims or -- in the event of fatality -- surviving family members will want to know who may be held responsible for their losses and what actions can be taken to seek compensation.

Alaska man injured in early morning pedestrian accident

Any time people walk near a street or in a parking lot, they run the risk of being hit by a moving vehicle.

Proposal hopes to keep potential drunk drivers off the road

An Alaska town is attempting a proactive approach after several recent alcohol-related incidents.

Seeking restitution after the loss of a loved one in Alaska

No one expects that when a family member leaves the house, it will be the last time he or she is ever seen alive. The unfathomable grief of getting a phone call that informs one of the loss of a loved one has been shared by many whose family members have been killed through the negligence of other persons. It is difficult to imagine that one would be able to think beyond the sorrow under such circumstances. However, surviving family members in Alaska and elsewhere often desire to seek justice on their deceased loved one's behalf in the aftermath of such tragedies.
