Being injured because someone made an error in judgement can create a wide range of problems. Whether the accident involved motor vehicles, motorcycles or medical malpractice, chances are you are confused and frightened. In addition, you probably are trying to work with an insurance company who is fighting you every step of the way. Some of the common reasons for contacting a personal injury attorney in Alaska occur after a car accident or other avoidable accident.
Motor vehicle accidents
Unfortunately, as more vehicles populate the roadways, there is always an increased chance of being involved in an accident. Sadly, not every driver operates their vehicle safely. Drunk driving, texting while driving and reckless driving not only puts the driver at risk but puts others on the road at risk as well. Any vehicle on the road is at risk but motorcycle operators are often at greater risk. In addition, being involved in an accident involving a truck is often deadly.
When you have been misdiagnosed, prescribed a bad medication or have suffered as a result of medical malpractice, you are probably facing high medical bills, side effects and a host of other problems. In these cases, hiring a personal injury attorney is the right thing to do since your case will be complicated and you will need representation.
There are numerous reasons why you should consider hiring a personal injury attorney. In Alaska, there are statutes of limitations that specify how much time you have to file a personal injury claim. To further complicate this, oftentimes an insurer will often try to avoid paying legitimate claims and this can make you feel victimized a second time.

There are significant benefits to seeking legal help including making sure you are fairly represented in any court proceedings. At Power and Brown, we are serious about preserving your rights.
