A bicyclist was killed in the Turnagain area of Anchorage on January 2, 2014, when he was hit by a gray Subaru while crossing Northern Lights Boulevard just west of Minnesota Drive.
Most unfortunately, there are far too many collisions between vehicles and bicyclists in Anchorage and other places in Alaska. Bicyclists have every right to be on the road, and vehicle drivers need to respect that right and exercise extra caution when bicyclists are in the area. This is especially true during winter months when the roads are extra slippery and unpredictable, and when riders may not be able to hear or see as well because of their winter clothing.
Our firm has represented numerous victims, and families of persons killed in vehicle verses bicycle collisions. What many people do not understand is that the medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses caused by the collision can be compensated not only through the motor vehicle insurance of the at-fault-driver, but also through uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage of the insurance policies of the victim and/or the victim's family members. We have been very successful in obtaining compensation for our clients from insurance policies our clients did not know even existed or could be applied to their losses.
