Although most motorists are careful, accidents still occur on Alaskan roadways. When a car accident causes injury to a passenger, a recovering victim may be met with medical bills from ongoing treatment or other expenses related to a collision. Under such circumstances, a victim may seek reprieve by filing a claim in a civil court against any party deemed responsible for the collision.
Two people were recently riding a dirt bike together when they were involved in a crash. Apparently, a car that had just stopped at a stop sign pulled into the road and collided with the bike. The driver of the automobile was not hurt in the incident.
The dirt bike operator suffered a leg injury. Police reported that the 20-year-old passenger on the bike suffered very serious injuries in the crash and was transported to a nearby hospital for emergency care. Fairbanks police have requested that any witnesses to the accident call their department to help in an ongoing investigation.
Navigating the legal system and determining how best to proceed to seek full recovery for the losses one has suffered in a car accident can be quite stressful for a recovering victim. In Alaska, an experienced personal injury attorney would be able to file a legal claim on an injured victim's behalf in order to seek maximum compensation for damages associated with a collision. A first logical step to take in the process would be to request a consultation with a lawyer in the area for a detailed case review.
