Billings motorcyclist dies in crash near MetraPark


When a motorcycle is involved in a collision with a car or truck, the motorcyclist is at a severe disadvantage. Motorcyclists lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, and are at greater risk of being severely injured or killed than occupants of larger vehicles. When the driver of the larger vehicle is intoxicated, the risk is even more deadly.

Excessive speed is a major cause of car accident deaths


In recent years there has been a lot of media attention given to the dangers of drunk driving and texting while driving. While these driving behaviors are serious safety issues in Montana, it is important to remember that speeding remains the cause of a significant number of deadly motor vehicle accidents. In fact, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association, speeding is a factor in one-third of all car accident fatalities nationwide.

Fighting for Montana victims of uninsured and hit and run drivers


When an individual is injured in an auto accident caused by a negligent driver, Montana law allows that individual to sue the negligent driver and recover monetary damages. These damages provide compensation for losses including medical expenses, lost income from work and pain and suffering. These damages can be significant and, in virtually every case, they are paid by the negligent driver's automobile liability insurance company.

Truck accident statistics illustrate potential for fatalities


While car accidents are a day-to-day occurrence in Billings, Montana, minor fender-benders pale in comparison to the destruction caused by a truck accident. Unfortunately, as the 2013 data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reveals, truck accidents have the potential to cause thousands of fatalities each year.
