In any wrongful death case, you need an experienced team of lawyers to ensure that the case is handled properly. In Alaska, there is a very specific and complicated set of rules dealing with a wrongful death lawsuit. This law sets forth the time limits for bringing such a claim, it names the person or persons who can file suit, and it requires the creation of an estate to facilitate the filing of such a claim. There are also very complicated rules in place specifying the type of damages that can be recovered. Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot’s attorneys will ensure that you recover all possible damages and are not denied certain recoveries, and we will also assist in setting up an estate.
