Dedicated to Helping You Recover Compensation

In the aftermath of an accident, everything can seem overwhelming, especially if you or a loved one were injured and are in serious pain. Seeking the assistance of a skilled Anchorage car accident lawyer cannot change what has happened, but we may be able to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Alaska Car Accident Statistics:

According to the NHTSA, there were 79 car accident fatalities in Alaska in 2017. The most recent data collected by the Alaska DOT reports that:

  • There were over 300 serious injuries caused by motor vehicle crashes in 2014
  • Over 4,300 minor injuries were reported as a result of car accidents in 2014
  • In 2014 there were over 7,400 cases of damaged property reported in relation to motor vehicle crashes

Why Hire a Car Accident Lawyer in Anchorage?

Many accidents involving minor injuries like whiplash or scratches and bruises can be handled without legal care. When an auto accident involves serious, disabling, or catastrophic injuries, retaining legal representation is very important. The other party's representation and the insurance company will likely be fighting to get out of paying you, which is why hiring your own car accident lawyer in Anchorage is essential. At Libbey Law Offices, we advocate for our clients and aim to take the burden off your shoulders while you recover.

Building a Claim Based on Negligence

It is required that drivers not only follow certain laws of the road but that they exercise care while driving. In a car accident case, it is up to us to illustrate that the collision was caused by the driver responsible for the accident failing to exercise care. Our goal is to examine any evidence from the scene of the accident and launch an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the crash. We can then present this documentation in a claim against the other driver.

Examples of a driver failing to practice reasonable care include:

  • Not stopping at a stop sign or red light
  • Traveling far above or below the speed limit
  • Tailgating and not keeping a distance from the car in front
  • Not paying attention to pedestrians or other vehicles

Alaska Statute of Limitations: Car Accidents

Each state has a statute of limitations that puts a time limit on how long after an accident an individual may file a personal injury claim. Alaska Statutes § 09.10.070 sets the time limit for filing a personal injury claim after a car accident at 2 years. This means you have up to 2 years to file your personal injury lawsuit. The same time limit applies to filing lawsuits for vehicle damage.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays?

Since most settlements state specifically that the amount agreed upon will be the only money paid, once you sign a settlement from an insurance company it is usually difficult to recover any more compensation. If you have already signed an agreement, you may still have options. Call our firm today to learn about what next steps you can take.
