What is the medical malpractice standard of care in Montana?

In a Montana medical malpractice case, the judge will instruct the jury as to the standard of competence, or standard of care, to which the doctor should be held. The jury must then decide whether the doctor's treatment met this standard of care.

A rear-end auto accident can change your life in an instant

One of the most common types of motor vehicle accidents in Montana is the rear-end accident. These accidents can occur at stop lights or stop signs, or when traffic is slowing down on a highway or freeway. Many rear-end accidents are simple fender benders, with little damage to the vehicles. But many are more serious, and they often result in severe injury -- especially to occupants of the vehicle that is hit from behind.

Brain injury impact felt in many sports

The number of activities posing risks of traumatic brain injury for victims in Montana and the United States have multiplied in recent years. The consequences of TBI have already been felt in professional football especially after former NFL players began experiencing depression and Alzheimer symptoms at younger ages. However, those involved in action sports are now feeling the impact of TBI after a brain injury suffered by BMX legend Dave Mirra led to his death.

What are the leading causes of traumatic brain injury?

Brain injuries are a leading cause of death and disability in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), brain injuries result in more than 50,000 deaths annually. Brain injuries are a contributing factor in about one-third of all deaths from injury in the U.S. Many Montana families can verify the terrible effects a brain injury has had on a loved one.
