Anchorage Aviation And Recreational Accident Lawyers
As all Alaskans and visitors know, our state provides extraordinary opportunities for outdoor recreation and tourism. With nearly endless possibilities for hunting, fishing, hiking, mountain climbing, water sports, sightseeing, and many other pursuits, serious accidents can occur.
When these accidents are caused by negligence or carelessness, legal action may be appropriate. Sometimes liability lies with a tour, cruise, or transportation company or government entity that hasn’t taken adequate steps to prevent accidents; in other cases, negligence cannot be shown to have been a factor. Every situation is different, so it is essential to seek the advice of a personal injury attorney if you have experienced an accident.
Alaskans fly on a much more regular basis than residents of the Lower 48. Particularly for residents of remote and less-connected areas, flying is necessary for many shopping tasks, errands, medical appointments and personal visits. Because of the common use of small planes and the numerous challenges of topography and weather in Alaska, aviation accidents occur far more frequently here than in other parts of the country. Many aviation accidents involve fatalities and serious injuries. In cases where negligence or equipment failure is involved, personal injury or wrongful death claims can be filed in order to obtain compensation for income loss, physiological and emotional pain and suffering, medical expenses, property loss, and the loss of enjoyment of life.
