Hegna Law, LLC takes your injury seriously. We represent injured Alaskans where another party is legally responsible for your injuries. Sometimes, our clients have both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim arising from the same incident, providing two potential remedies.
If you are hurt and need help navigating the legal process, we can help! Hegna Law offers honest, caring and vigilant representation for injured Alaskans.
Hegna Law, LLC represents workers throughout the state and beyond who have suffered injuries on the job while working in Alaska. We bring years of experience to every injured worker's claim; vigilantly working to protect their rights and seek justice on their behalf. Fortunately for injured workers, the employer or their insurance company pays our legal fees when we settle or prevail on a resisted or denied claim. If the worker does not get paid, we do not get paid, and attorney's fees are not charged to the worker.
Hegna Law, LLC also consistently and effectively represents claimants in personal injury claims beyond the workplace; matters such as motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, wrongful death, childhood injuries. etc. It is also fairly common to have both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim at the same time. For example, a worker is injured in an automobile accident while in the course and scope of their employment and the collision was the fault of another driver on the road. In such a case, the worker may have both remedies available. In these circumstances, it is very important to have a lawyer on your side that understands both workers' compensation and personal injury law. In personal injury claims, we do not get paid unless you get paid. If we settle or prevail on your claim, we charge a contingency fee where we receive a portion of the settlement or judgment, this is the industry standard for personal injury claims.
