Alaska Wrongful Death Lawyers
Did You Lose a Loved One Due to Negligence?
Losing a loved one can be one of the most difficult experiences in your life, especially if they passed away in a tragic accident. Not only must you live the rest of your life without him/her by your side, you and the rest of the family must also deal with funeral expenses, any medical costs prior to your loved one’s death, and the probate process to distribute his/her estate. With the help of a skilled lawyer, you can recover financial compensation for the negligent person or entity responsible for the wrongful death.
Our Alaska wrongful death attorney at Lowe Law Group can help you during this most trying time. While we understand that no amount of money can ever replace a life, it can help take care of all the financial losses incurred from the incident. Do not hesitate to let us fight for your entitled compensation while you and your family grieve in peace.
Wrongful Death Laws in Alaska
According to state law, a personal representative of the decedent (the deceased individual) must bring a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of his/her dependents (i.e. spouse, minor children, any other family members who rely on the decedent’s care). If the decedent isn’t survived by any dependents, then the personal representative sues on behalf of the deceased individual’s estate and the award is limited to “pecuniary losses” or economic losses.
Common types of economic and noneconomic losses available in a wrongful death settlement include, but not limited to, the following:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of household services
- Lost child and spousal support contributions
The personal representative has two years from the date the death occurred to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Alaska. Along with the civil court action, criminal charges can be brought against the negligent party by the state. A conviction in criminal court can be used as evidence in a wrongful death lawsuit.
