Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Alaska
Our Experienced Legal Team Can Fight for You
Many residents and visitors in Alaska like to walk through the bustling neighborhoods in Anchorage and take in the great outdoors the rest of the state has to offer. Unfortunately, when there is consistent foot traffic in a specific area, there is also plenty of room for an accident to occur between pedestrians and motorists. Since pedestrians do not have the protection afforded to those driving vehicles, a collision can result in catastrophic and life-threatening injuries.

How Pedestrian Accidents Happen
All licensed drivers in Alaska must exercise reasonable care when operating a vehicle and sharing the roadways with other motorists and pedestrians. If a driver failed to exercise such care by disobeying the traffic laws or driving recklessly and strikes a pedestrian, he/she can be held liable for any injuries and damages inflicted on the pedestrian.
The following are common causes of pedestrian accidents in Alaska:
- Distracted driving
- Driver intoxication
- Reckless driving
- Failure to follow traffic signals and signs
However, many drivers in this situation may place the blame on the pedestrian, especially if the pedestrian was texting while walking, jaywalking, or otherwise committing a traffic violation or putting themselves in harm’s way. Since determining liability in a pedestrian accident can be complex, it is imperative to hire an experienced lawyer to protect your rights and best interests.
