Pursuing justice in Alaska after a drunk driving accident

One can only imagine the horror of learning that a loved one has been killed in a motor vehicle collision. When an incident is believed to have been a drunk driving accident, a grieving family's sorrow may be intensified, accompanied by a strong desire for justice. In Alaska and all other states, an immediate family member of a fatal accident victim may file a wrongful death claim in a civil court against any and all parties deemed responsible for a death.
