Aviation accident numbers apparently on the rise in Alaska.

Soaring through the wide blue yonder of Alaska is an experience sought by many aviation enthusiasts and tourists. Logic would suggest, however, that the more planes there are in the sky, the higher chances become for an aviation accident to occur. The Federal Aviation Administration recently weighed in on the topic, issuing a warning to Alaska air operators.

Seeking justice after the loss of a loved one in Alaska

There is not much one can imagine as being more difficult than learning that a beloved family member has been killed in an act of violence in Alaska, or through a motor vehicle collision. When the loss of a loved one has taken place because of another person's negligent or wrongful actions, it is only right that family members are provided with a legal means to seek justice on behalf of the decedent. Although no amount of litigation can replace a human life, filing a wrongful death claim often leads to compensation that can help a grieving family offset many expenses incurred after a tragedy of this magnitude.

Serious car accident injuries often connected to cell phone use

Alaska is a major tourist spot. Every year, thousands of visitors travel to this expansive state in search of beauty, adventure and relaxation. Vacations that are interrupted by car accident injuries, however, are not likely to be ones that rank high in the cherished memories department. Often, such injuries occur in accidents caused by a negligent use of cell phones while driving.

Beyond the grief in the loss of a loved one in Alaska

Many families in Alaska have experienced such tragedies. Often, once the reality of the situation has set in, a family may also face unexpected financial strain and legal challenges due to the loss of a loved one.
