Alaskans are injured in accidents every day. A 2015 report from the Alaska Department of Transportation stated that over 4,700 car crashes occur each year in the state, and one person died on an Alaska road about every five days. Additionally, the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that more than one-third of all air crashes in the United States occur in the state. And it’s not just the carelessness of those on the road and in the air that cause harm. Alaskans are injured every day in any number of accidents—from dog bites to defective products to work injuries. Some of these accidents are simply tragic incidents that no amount of caution could have avoided. In many other cases, however, the careless actions of one person caused the physical pain, emotional suffering, and financial stress of another.

What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
