Alaska Car Accident Lawyer Explains

Video Transcript:

Rob Rosenthal: 

If you're injured in a car crash in Alaska and you think you're partially at fault, could you still have a chance to collect damages? We're asking Alaska Lawyer Mark Choate, in this, Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.

Mark Choate: 

Absolutely. The law anticipates that not everyone is gonna be in a accident where they're fault free. There may be something that you could have done that would have limited it or contributed to the accident, that doesn't mean that there's not a claim. And for example, I just looked at one where the issue was, was the other driver at fault, but there was a death. And the insurance company already said, "If we have any fault at all, we're gonna pay on this one." And so, because even a small percentage of fault on a death case may require payment. So, it's definitely worth looking at and talking to a lawyer who knows what they're doing.
