Whiplash Injury Law
We Are Alaska's Car Accident Lawyers
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries suffered by victims of car, truck and motorcycle accidents. If you or a member of your family has suffered this type of neck trauma or back trauma, you are entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and other costs. An experienced attorney can help you get the compensation you are entitled to.
You will find experienced attorneys at Personal Injury Attorneys of Alaska, An Association of Independent Law Firms. How much experience will you find? Lawyer Charles W. Coe has fought for the rights of whiplash injury victims since 1978.
Whiplash Injuries and Rear-End Collisions
Whiplash is frequently caused by rear-end collisions, which are possibly the most common type of motor vehicle accident on the streets of Alaska. We see the same scenario all too often: the victim was stopped at a stop sign or red light, when they were struck from behind by a driver who was eating or using a cell phone or doing something else instead of watching the road. We hold these negligent drivers accountable.
Whiplash Injuries Are Very Real
Anyone who has experienced a whiplash injury knows exactly how painful these injuries can be. Still, there persists a belief that these are minor injuries. We know they are not, even though insurance companies want the public to think aren't real. While it is true that they do not show up on x-rays in the way that broken bones do, these injuries are just as painful, if not more so. In fact, they often take longer to heal than broken bones and cause more disruption of a victim's life.
You Only Pay if We Get Results
We take all whiplash claims on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge our fees if we are able to recover compensation for your injuries.
