How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Alaska?
According to the Alaska Stat. § 9.10.070 (a) (2023), the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Alaska is two years. This means you have two years from the date your injury happened to you to file a claim, or you may lose your right to do so altogether.
However, it’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit, so it’s very important you speak to an experienced Anchorage personal injury lawyer about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.
