Truckers in Alaska expressed their concern over the lack of road maintenance of the Dalton Highway. This followed the death of an experienced truck driver on a recent Friday morning. It remains to be seen if a wrongful death claim will be filed in the aftermath of this tragedy.
When an Alaska family loses a loved one in an auto crash, the financial consequences often exacerbate the emotional trauma. If the accident was caused by negligence such as distracted or aggressive driving, violations of the road rules, or poor driving skills, the surviving family members could file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, some people do not consider this option because they feel that the loved one cannot be brought back by any amount of compensation.
Lives are sometimes lost in the most tragic circumstances imaginable. One devastating accident caused the death of an 8-year-old boy. Although nothing can undo what has already happened, his family will have the option to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the party believed responsible in an Alaska civil court.
A mother of a 2-year-old daughter who was out on an Alaska lake for a day of fun earlier this month lost her life in a tragic accident. Her surviving family members then had to deal with unanticipated end-of-life expenses at a time when they were likely overcome with grief. Fortunately, the civil justice system of Alaska allows them to pursue financial relief by filing a wrongful death lawsuit.
When an Alaska family loses a loved one in circumstances that involve another party's negligence, the trauma will naturally be overwhelming. At the same time, there will be financial consequences that may exacerbate the hardship further. Financial relief could be pursued by filing a wrongful death lawsuit in a civil court.
