Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in Alaska
Millions Recovered for Injured Accident Victims
Whether you ride a motorcycle as your primary means of transportation around
town, or you simply enjoy Alaska’s many open roads and stunning
scenic views in your free time, our state offers one of the greatest places
to ride in the U.S. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle also comes with
its fair share of risks. While you are far less likely to be involved
in a motorcycle accident in Alaska than most other states, you are nevertheless
about 26 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident on a motorcycle
than a person traveling in a normal passenger vehicle.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Alaska
Motorcyclists in Alaska are notoriously responsible. Within the motorcycle
community, there is a significant amount of peer pressure to complete
safety training courses and engage in safe, defensive driving practices.
Unfortunately, other motorists are not always so careful.
When another driver is careless, reckless, or simply not paying attention
to the road, they can cause serious accidents that may result in a motorcyclist
sustaining severe injuries. In some tragic cases, these collisions lead
to motorcyclist fatalities. Whenever another person (or entity) is negligent
and this negligence leads to you suffering harm, you are entitled to seek
compensation for your damages by bringing a
personal injury claim (or
wrongful death claim, if your loved one was killed).
You may be entitled to seek compensation if your accident was caused by:
- A distracted driver
- A drunk driver
- A reckless or aggressive driver
- Someone who violated traffic laws
- A motorist who was speeding
- A careless or inexperienced driver
- Defective road design or construction
- A defective vehicle/vehicle part
It’s important to note that Alaska follows what is known as a “pure
comparative negligence” rule. Under this legal theory, you can still
seek damages if you were partially at fault for the accident. If a jury
determines that you share some percentage of the blame, your total recovery
will be reduced by whatever percent of fault the jury decides you have.
For example, if you suffer $10,000 worth of damages in a motorcycle accident,
but the jury decides you were 20% at fault for the collision, you can
only recover up to 80% of the total recovery amount or, in this case,
up to $8,000.
Should I Talk to the Other Person’s Insurance Company?
After a motorcycle accident, an adjuster (or representative) from the other
person’s insurance company may try to reach out to you.
Do not speak to any adjusters from the other motorist’s insurance company! Insurance companies are for-profit businesses and, like any other company,
their primary goal is to maximize their own profits. They will often attempt
to do this by disputing or even denying valid claims. The insurance adjuster
may employ tactics to get you to unknowingly admit fault for the accident
or downplay the extent of your injuries. This can have a serious, negative
impact on your ability to recover compensation.
If you are contacted by an insurance adjuster or representative from the
other person’s insurance company, do not speak to them. Instead,
reach out to an Alaska motorcycle accident attorney who can help protect
your rights and negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
