Medical malpractice can have devastating consequences

Medical malpractice can take many forms and the consequences for a Montana patient can be life-changing, or possibly life-ending. For example, failure to diagnose cancer can result in a tumor continuing to grow undetected, until it is too late to remove by surgery or treat effectively with radiation.

Resolving personal injury claims through mediation

When Montana residents files a personal injury claim in connection with a car accident, they are often unsure how their case will be resolved. Some cases go to trial and a jury decides whether the defendant was negligent, and then decides the amount of damages that will fairly compensate the plaintiff. But, the majority of personal injury claims are settled out of court. Settlement provides certainty to both parties and avoids the risk and expense of trial.

Truck and car collision in Billings sends bicyclist to hospital

As bicycling becomes more popular in Montana, it is probably inevitable that collisions with motor vehicles will increase. Unfortunately, a person on a bike has very little protection in collision. Unlike someone in a car, the bicyclist is not surrounded by a steel cage that will absorb some of the impact. As a result, automobile-bicycle collisions carry a high risk of serious injury for the cyclist.

Federal rules govern truck maintenance to avoid truck accidents

It does not take much imagination to picture what can happen when the tires or brakes on a semi truck fail on a busy Montana highway. To help prevent accidents caused by negligent truck maintenance, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations include provisions governing truck maintenance.

How does Montana workers' compensation account for wage loss?

When a Montana worker is a work accident victim, one of the main concerns that will occupy his or her mind after the fact is the medical issue itself and recovering from it. However, there is also the issue of loss of wages from being unable to work. The recovery from injury can be hindered by rushing back to the job before the injury has sufficiently healed. Understanding how workers' compensation benefits can help to cover lost wages is key to taking the time to recover properly.
