It's important to understand your rights after a car accident

No one ever plans to be injured in a car accident, but it happens every day in Montana. When it happens, it throws whatever plans you did have out the window. Suddenly you have to deal not only with a wrecked car, but with pain, lost time from work, medical appointments and sometimes the inability to get around or do the things you used to do.

Three Montana residents killed in head-on crash

A head-on collision between a pick-up truck apparently driven by a teenager and a semi-trailer truck has killed three young men and left a fourth in critical condition. As is the case with most car-truck accidents, details on the accident and its cause were not immediately clear.

How can Montana hospitals reduce the risk of wrong-site surgery?

When Montana residents have to undergo surgery for a serious health condition, most understand that doctors can't work miracles. The surgery may not be successful in alleviating the condition at issue. But a patient does have the right to expect that the surgical team will operate on the correct site in the body. Tragically, this does not always happen.

Montana highway workers face risk of injury or death on the job

Montana drivers are very familiar with highway work zones, especially in the summer months when construction projects are in full swing. Being delayed by the lane reductions, traffic cones and slower speed limits in work zones can be frustrating. But for those who make their living working on road construction, work zone traffic control is critical to their safety.

What is the most dangerous form of transportation in Montana?

When an airliner crash, passenger train derailment or ship sinking claims hundreds of lives, the event becomes a major news story around the world. In the aftermath of such tragedies, safety advocates and politicians often call for new safety measures for the mode of transportation in question. Sometimes these calls are heeded and new regulations are enacted to prevent similar accidents in the future.
