Anchorage, AK (PRWEB) April 14, 2014
The Law Office of Robert Stone, LLC, an Alaska-based law firm specializing in personal injury and wrongful death cases, celebrates their compiled 20 years of experience with the United States' justice system. This incredible amount of practice has allowed The Law Office of Robert Stone, LLC, to develop and implement excellent strategies to combat and surmount such inequities as the Alaska Rule of Evidence 411, the Alaska Rule of Civil Procedure 68 and the Alaska Rule of Civil Procedure 82.
The Alaska Rule of Evidence 411 prevents injured parties from being able to comment about insurance. This law prohibits the victim from indicating that the tortfeasor has insurance that can cover the cost of negligence. This allows the defense to make it seem as though he or she will have to dig deep into their savings in order to pay for the victim's expenses, which evokes sympathy from the jury and potentially lowers damages awarded by the jury verdict.
The Alaska Rule of Civil Procedure 68 and the Alaska Rule of Civil Procedure 82 punish unsuccessful plaintiffs. Under these rules, the victim might have to pay anywhere between 30% to 75% of the attorney fees that the insurance company had to pay for legal defense in the lawsuit. This leads to many, many settlements that are less than their true value, since defendants are too afraid of having to owe the insurance company for legal fees--even in cases when the defendant admits fault.
With the 20 years of compiled experience, The Law Office of Robert Stone, LLC, can painlessly guide clients through the frustratingly complex process of insurance. If necessary, they'll also take the cases to court on the behalf of their clients to get them the justice that they deserve. Though the insurance industry has stacked the odds against Alaskan victims of personal injury and wrongful death, The Law Office of Robert Stone, LLC, can level the playing field.
