Accidents and Personal Injury
Whether from car crashes, falls, industrial accidents, assaults or other causes, thousands of Montanans are injured or killed every year due to the negligent conduct of others. By far, the most common source of injury or death is the car crash. In 2010, the latest year for which statistics are available, there were nearly 21,000 car crashes in Montana, which led to nearly 200 deaths and thousands of injuries to other motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Many of these crashes are the result of careless or inattentive driving and are easily preventable.
An inattentive driver can cause devastating injuries to an innocent person in an instant. Suddenly, there are medical bills to pay, wages lost, and the pain, suffering, and mental anguish that comes with having to deal with it all. The innocent injured person should not have to bear these burdens alone. Whether through the perpetrator’s insurance, the injured person’s insurance, or possibly other sources, there are avenues to recovering compensation to lessen the burden. If you have been injured by the negligent conduct of another person, it is a good idea to consult with a lawyer who can explain your rights, responsibilities, and options.
