A large portion of the cases heard and adjudicated in state courts are related to accidents and injuries, which includes slip-and-fall accidents; liability for intentional acts such as harassment or assault; property-related matters, such as trespassing; and other such lawsuits. In Alaska, as in other states, places limits on how long a plaintiff has to file a claim after an injury has taken place, called the "statute of limitations." And while most states treat the legal doctrine of negligence similarly, it tends to vary slightly by state. Click on a link below to learn more about Alaska's accident and injury laws.
