Drunk drivers: They are true menaces to Alaska roadways

Alaska is known for its vast expanses and beautiful scenery, visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year. However, towns in this state are not unlike many others throughout the nation where drunk drivers and other negligent motorists wreak havoc upon the roads, often causing serious injuries or fatalities. When someone is injured in an accident caused by an intoxicated driver, it is understandable that person would want to seek justice by filing a personal injury claim in a civil court.

One can only imagine the grief associated with learning that a spouse or other loved one has suffered an untimely death in an automobile accident caused by someone who made the decision to drink and drive. In addition to the tremendous sorrow of such situations, families are often quite unprepared to meet financial debt that is often accrued in the aftermaths of such tragedies. One way to get help in offsetting such costs is to seek a monetary judgment against the party deemed responsible for the accident.

If a death has occurred, a spouse, parent or adult child may act on behalf of a deceased loved one in court. A victim who has survived injury may file a claim in his/her own right. Recalling as many details as possible regarding the events that led up to the collision is recommended, as the burden of proof in such situations lies with the plaintiff.
