Distracted driving: helping your brain make safe decisions

In a previous post, we discussed the rise in cell phone-related distracted driving accidents in recent years. Alaska has responded to the problem by passing firm legislation, which bans the use of electronic devices while driving and creates stiff penalties for violators.

Recognizing and responding to a drunk driver

It’s becoming increasingly common to encounter careless drivers on the road. Aggressive driving and road rage are particularly common during rush hour. In addition, the smartphone era has led to a significant spike in distracted driving. Still, drunk driving remains one of the deadliest forms of negligent driving—causing more than one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities in the state of Alaska.

Understand options for pursuing injury compensation

If you've been involved in an incident in or around Anchorage in which another's negligence caused you injury, your first focus needs to be on getting better. Another objective – one that can be harder to reach – is being confident that you don't get caught in a monetary quagmire that leaves you and your family financially disabled. Your body's natural healing power and medicine can help with the first goal. The second can be more difficult.

Notoriously dangerous: KGB Road safety concerns

The Knik Goose Bay Road is a popular scenic drive with a history rooted in the Knik trade center era, pre-Anchorage days.

Improvements include added signals, signs and striping.

In the winter, you may have a list of regular services you perform on your car. You might switch to winter tires, or you may stock your car with chains. But one safety step many people fail to take is regularly ensuring their tire pressure is within a safe range.

Car accident rates spike on Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl LIII is just around the corner, and Alaskans are gearing up for the "most watched sporting event in the world." For many of us, the Super Bowl is an important tradition. It's a time when we get to spend the whole day relaxing with family and friends--where the only activities are eating, drinking and watching the game.

Government shutdown could lead to increased personal injury

We are nearly a month into the partial government shutdown, and there is still no sign of a resolution on the horizon. This has meant that more than 800,000 federal employees—as well as many other government contractors—have been furloughed or are working without pay.
