Automobile Accidents

If you are involved in an automobile accident, do not take any chances. Call Birch Horton. We have been representing injured Alaskans for over forty years and can put our experience to work for you.

When you are injured in an automobile accident that is not your fault, your focus should be on your recovery, not on dealing with insurance adjusters, forms, and the opposing insurance company. BHBC will step in to communicate directly with insurance companies on your behalf, taking care of loose ends and allowing you to recover. Avoid making the mistake of settling your claim for only a few hundred dollars when damages often far exceed that amount. We will guide you through the process of settling claims only when you know the full nature of your injuries and all damages from the accident.

Did you know:

  • When you are in an accident, the other insurance company often calls for a recorded statement and sometimes tries to settle your claim for only a few hundred dollars. You are in no way obligated to speak to this insurance company and you do not have to give a recorded statement.
  • Many people settle their claims immediately after an accident—long before they know the full extent of their injuries.
  • When you settle with the insurance company, many other parties will ask for a portion of your settlement: your health insurer, automobile insurer, medical care provider, and even Medicaid or Medicare.
  • If you have underinsured motorist coverage, you must obtain consent from your insurance company if you settle for insurance limits.

Avoid these common pitfalls and make sure you obtain the greatest recovery by having a team of lawyers by your side. For new claims or existing claims, BHBC will ensure that you receive the maximum benefit that is due to you. We have the knowledge and expertise to make this difficult process less painful.
