Types of Alaska Car Accidents

Multi-Vehicle and Single Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents come in many forms and types. The circumstances surrounding the accident can impact how an Alaska personal injury lawyer will pursue compensation from the responsible party to obtain damages. Multi-vehicle accidents are more complex due to the number of insurance companies involved and the number of potential litigants. In a rear-end collision, there often are several vehicles involved in the chain reaction caused by the first stopped vehicle. Assessing cause in these accidents requires an experienced attorney who is well-versed in insurance and personal injury law. The lawyers at Johnson Beard & Trueb, PC have obtained substantial damages for victims of all types of car accidents, and are recognized for having achieved many notable, high value settlements and verdicts. Get the professional advantage our firm can offer, and contact us today.

There are less common vehicle accidents that require the skill of an experienced Alaska personal injury attorney. Accidents taking place on a ferry will require an understanding of maritime or admiralty law as the accident occurred on a body of water. Single vehicle accidents can be caused by a negligent property owner who fails to protect visitors against an obstruction such as a large pothole in a parking lot. Hitting a pothole at speed can cause a driver to lose control. Swerving to avoid hitting a jaywalker which results in an injury accident is a car accident requiring careful management by an experienced legal professional. Cases in which a drunk driver was speeding, wrong way driving, or swerving can cause devastating injuries or death. Other forms of car accidents are the result of a faulty auto part or system, such as defective tires, airbags that fail to deploy, or road hazards. The bottom line is that whatever type of car accident you have experienced, getting adequate compensation for your damages takes a focused, no-nonsense approach with the responsible party and his/her insurance.

Damages are not all assessed under the same standard for all types of car accidents. For example, drunk driving injuries may be awarded punitive damages as well as compensatory damages for medical expenses, lost income and pain and suffering. Each case must be individually evaluated, and our firm is prepared to offer you counsel on this critical matter. Contact us for an initial consultation to review the facts of your case. We will give you our best estimation of what you can expect in damages for your losses, based on our many years of experience in the area of personal injury law.
