Recovering Compensation For The Injured
in Billings, Montana

Standing up to truck companies in Montana

Everyone in Montana must practice defensive driving, but this is especially true for drivers of semi-trucks. A truck's sheer size and weight can cause significantly more damage if they are involved in a wreck. Moreover, some semi-trucks carry hazardous materials, which could be dangerous if they spill on the roadway due to a crash.

However, truckers do not always drive as responsibly as they should. Oftentimes they are encouraged by their employers to make as many deliveries as possible as quickly as possible. This, in turn, encourages truckers to speed to reach their destinations or drive while fatigued. Any of these situations can lead to a truck accident in which an innocent motorist is injured or killed.

When it comes to truck accidents, it is important to identify all responsible parties. These may include not just the truck driver but, in some cases, the truck company and the truck company's insurance company as well. In the end, sorting out liability in any truck accident is best left to the professionals.

A truck injury attorney, such as those at the Law Firm of Edmiston & Colton, can help their clients develop a strong defense against those responsible for the crash. It can be intimidating to fight back against a large corporation or insurance company who are skirting their responsibilities in the crash. By enlisting the help of expert witnesses and by carefully examining all available evidence, knowledgeable attorneys can see that their clients' interests are represented completely and competently throughout the trial process.
