Anchorage is Alaska’s largest city. In fact, more than half of the state’s population lives in the Greater Anchorage Area, which includes Matanuska-Susitna Borough. Not surprisingly, serious car crashes often occur in and around Anchorage. If you’ve been involved in a collision caused by another driver, call the Anchorage Police Department or simply dial 911. A police officer can respond and investigate your crash.
If necessary, ask the police to send an ambulance if you or anyone else appears seriously injured. You might need emergency medical care at Providence Alaska Medical Center Emergency Room or another nearby hospital. And even if you feel OK, make sure you have a doctor or another medical professional examine you. Many car accident injuries take time to develop. In addition, make sure you contact an experienced Anchorage car accident attorney right away. That way, you will fully understand your legal rights.
