Ken Norsworthy has practiced in Alaska for 40 years. He is licensed in both Alaska and Texas and is a member of the Alaska and Texas Bar Associations and The National Trial Lawyers*. Personal Injury Auto Accidents Slip & Fall Medical Negligence
We handle cases involving all types of accidents, including but not limited to automobile, boating, aviation, industrial, slip and fall, and use of defective products. The injury does not necessarily have to result in hospitalization and/or extensive medical treatment to be of a sufficient damage value for our firm to accept. Sometimes injuries that result in no hospitalization and only minimal medical treatment or care result in significant pain and suffering, permanent disability and/or mental and emotional anguish. In such cases the victim is entitled under the law to the same level of compensation for their pain and suffering and disability related damages as the person requiring significant medical care. In order to accurately evaluate your claim as to the likely range of damages it would yield in a settlement and a judgment at trial you will need to provide us with all applicable records relating to the accident and the medical care and other information that may be requested by us which we will review free of charge in evaluating your claim prior to making a decision to either decline or accept your claim for representation. It is almost always beneficial for the prospective injury client to seek a claim evaluation from an injury lawyer as soon as possible after the occurrence of their injury.
We represent military dependents for claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act relating to personal injury, death and property loss caused by the negligence or intentional acts of military members or civil servant employees of the federal agency involved, including military hospital medical malpractice claims.
