Alaska Personal Injury Lawyers

How to choose an Alaska personal injury lawyer for your case can be a tricky subject. It is first advisable to check out the section on personal injury lawyers for general guidelines on how to pick out an attorney who is a good fit for your case.

Find a qualified and extremely competent personal injury lawyer in your location.
 

In choosing an Alaska personal injury lawyer there may be some particular challenges not faced in other states. For instance, Alaska is ranked 47th in population with less than ¾ million people in the entire state.

This is less than some big cities in some states, so the pool of Alaska personal injury attorneys, from which to choose, is naturally smaller. In addition, Alaska is isolated among the states so choosing a personal injury attorney from a bordering state is not an option.

Some Alaska personal injury lawyers, do however, have offices in both Alaska and one other non-bordering state such as Washington or Oregon, but for practical reasons choosing a personal injury lawyer in state will generally be more prudent.

Because Alaska is one of the least populated states, there are also fewer personal injury cases to go around. For instance, Alaska averages only 2 fatal car crashes per year, so an Alaska personal injury lawyer specializing in this field may just go hungry if they were not to branch out into other areas as well.

According to the Alaska State Bar, there is a total of 2,349 active attorneys in the state and of which 801 are female. This number is for total attorneys and does not specify how many are Alaska personal injury lawyers. The number of actual Alaska personal injury lawyers fares to be far less.

The Alaska State Bar is one credible option for finding a personal injury lawyer in the state. The DMV oddly enough also has some listings.

In order to qualify your Alaska personal injury lawyer as one that you'd like to work with it is important to interview and screen them. Asking how long they've worked in Alaska will be helpful along with finding out how well they know the personal injury laws within the state.

You may even wish to throw out some Alaska personal injury case law to see if your prospective lawyer is on their toes. You can ask your Alaska personal injury lawyer about Ausec (Kirkevold) v. Mitchell, which is a personal injury case about scuba tank negligence. Or you may wish to quiz them about Ellison v. H.C. Price, which is a sexual discrimination lawsuit against the Plumbers and Steamfitters Union Local 375 by a female who was working as a pipe fitter. If your prospective personal injury lawyer is unaware about these two cases, it may or may not be a red flag, but your prospective Alaska attorney should know about this next case.

Evans v. State of Alaska is a case against the state by those who say they have been negatively impacted by medical malpractice legislation. This is famous Alaskan personal injury case law that has gone on for years, and of which your attorney should be very familiar.

Remember when investigating Alaska personal injury lawyers, be sure to not only choose one that is well-qualified and on top of things, but also choose one in which you have good rapport. Good chemistry and understanding is important especially during a long trial.
