When Other Vehicles Don't Share The Road

When Freedom Turns To Tragedy

Riding a motorcycle in Montana can be freeing and exhilarating. It can also turn deadly very quickly if another vehicle on the road doesn't see you or neglects to look before merging or making a turn. And in a collision with a larger, heavier vehicle, motorcycle riders often suffer serious injuries that require long-lasting and expensive medical treatment. If the accident wasn't your fault, you shouldn't have to pay for it. And you shouldn't be expected to fight insurance companies while you're in pain, or if you are recovering from the tragic loss of a loved one.

Just because you're on a motorcycle doesn't mean you're fair game for careless or inattentive motorists.

Serious Injuries Are Common

In a motorcycle accident, riders often suffer catastrophic injuries in a crash with another vehicle. These can include:

  • Fractures
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Back injury
  • Neck injury
  • Burns

Brain injuries in particular can require extensive, long-term treatment and can have an uncertain prognosis. That's why you need a lawyer who can fight for the maximum possible compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages and other costs related to the accident. We also represent the families of motorcycle riders who have lost their lives through the negligence of another driver.
