The Aftermath of a Serious Accident
After an accident, victims suffer an array of consequences. There are the physical costs, including, in many cases, life-altering injuries and severe, long-lasting pain. Such incidents are also often accompanied by immense emotional suffering, including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and stress. Victims will also face enormous financial burdens, as they must now pay for unanticipated medical expenses, including immediate emergency treatment and ongoing care. Depending on the severity of the accident, these costs may be compounded by an inability to return to work, either temporarily or permanently.
What Compensation Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Case?
At Farnsworth & Vance, our goal is to help you secure the compensation you are owed for all of the damages you have suffered, including but not limited to:
All medical costs associated with the accident, such as:
- Ambulance/emergency room fees
- Immediate medical treatment
- Ongoing rehabilitative care
- Medications and pain management programs
- Medical equipment (wheelchairs, ramps, crutches, etc.)
- Mental health care for conditions caused by the accident
- Lost income/wages for time taken off work to recover from your injuries/receive treatment
- Lost earning ability/lost employment opportunities if your injuries are partially or fully disabling in nature
- Pain and suffering, including both physical and emotional trauma
- Property damage, including loss of use of property and the cost of repairs/replacements
What is the Statue of Limitations in Alaska?
In the state of Alaska, you have two years from the date of the accident/injury or the date at which you became aware of the injury to bring a personal injury claim. This is known as the statute of limitations. Once the statute of limitations has passed, you will not be able to bring a claim. Therefore, it is important that you contact an attorney at our firm as soon as possible if you wish to seek compensation for your damages.
