Alaska’s Stirling Highway Crash – Marshall Claims & Remember the SOL

Comments Off

52-year-old Richard Price of Michigan was killed, and his passenger/wife 58-year-old Diana Price was badly injured in a Sterling Highway Alaska car crash. It appears that an on-coming driver, 27-year old Joshua Millstein crossed the center-line and struck the Price vehicle head-on. It also appears that MIllstein's passenger, 30-year old Rosa Gonzales, was injured in the wreck.

Diana Price (individually and for Richard's estate) and Rosa Gonzales should know that Alaskan law marshalls claims against: (1) Millstein's insurer (liability claims); and (2) only then the Price vehicle's Underinsured Motorist Insurer (UIM). VERY IMPORTANT: Be sure to get UIM permission (in writing) before taking a dime from Milllstein's insurer. You should also ensure that Millstein was not employed by any company at the time of this wreck, and that he was not acting as anybody's agent at the time of this wreck.

Also, keep your eye on the AS 09.10.070 Statute of Limitations for injury to adults in Alaska … it's two years from the date of the wreck. You must either informally settle your claims, or file a formal lawsuit within two years, or you will lose valuable legal rights, including the right to compensation. Because this wreck caused enormous losses, this is very important. Take immediate action t o protect your rights.
