According to the Alaska Statutes section .09.10.070, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Alaska is two years. This means that you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you will lose your opportunity to recover compensation for your suffering. It is best to file your personal injury claim as soon as possible. Call our firm today if you have any questions about how the statute of limitations might affect your case.
“Damages” is a legal term used to describe the types of compensation injury victims are eligible to pursue after filing a personal injury claim. How many damages you will be able to recover compensation for and for how much depends on the specifics of your case. The types of damages available are economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. The first two types of damages responsible for compensating the injured party for the physical and emotional losses they suffer such as:
While economic and non-economic damages can cover a wide array of losses, the last type of damages, punitive damages, has one purpose to punish the at-fault party. Punitive damages are not often awarded and usually are reserved for cases where the at-fault party knew they were behaving negligently.
Not only can an attorney walk you through the process of filing a personal injury claim, but, unlike insurance companies, they are true advocates on your side. Insurance companies are a business that more often than not are looking out for their own best interest before yours. Additionally, many people find that their injuries turn out to be more severe days or weeks after they sustained them. If you accept an insurance settlement before you know how serious your injuries are, you may find your settlement no longer covers all your medical expenses. An attorney from Libbey Law Offices can fight to protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve.
Serious accident injuries can cause significant challenges. The medical bills quickly pile up. You may have lost income because you cannot perform your job duties. The emotional damage is also very real.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, you may be able to recover compensation for all of these damages and more. Turn to Libbey Law Offices in Anchorage. We serve clients in neighboring communities such as Palmer and Wasilla, as well as statewide across Alaska.Contact Us
