What types of compensation can you seek after car accidents?

If you find yourself involved in a Montana car crash, you may be wondering what type of damages you can pursue to help you pay for medical care, property damage and so on. Ultimately, the types of damages you can try and claim will vary based on the specifics of your accident and who or what was at fault for it, but many who suffer personal injury after accident involvement pursue the same basic types of damages.

Types of distracted driving

While most drivers in Montana realize that many car accidents are caused by distracted driving, you may not be aware that there are multiple types of this offense that can be committed. Cell phones receive the most attention because they qualify in all three categories of distraction, but there are several other actions that can lead to an accident. We at the Law Firm of Edmiston and Colton can ensure you get the compensation you deserve if you were injured in an accident caused by a distracted driver.

Medical mistakes can cause lifelong disability for your child

Labor and delivery are physically and emotionally stressful for most women. They rely on the doctors and nurses present during the process to protect them and guide them through a safe birth. Generally, doctors and nurses are attentive, compassionate and well-informed about what to do during birth. Sometimes, however, a mistake or oversight can end up having profound and lasting consequences for the patient.

The unique dangers of biking in Montana

Earlier this year, USA Today reported the tragic death of Brad Treat, a Forest Service law enforcement officer killed by a grizzly bear in a biking accident in Montana’s Flathead National Forest. Treat and a companion were riding their mountain bikes when Treat rounded a blind curve at 20-25 miles per hour and collided with the bear.

Medical error leading to wrongful death

Montana residents, like people across the country, trust their doctor(s) to do what is best for them. They believe that while doctors cannot prevent accidents and injuries resulting in a hospital stay, they can and will treat their patients appropriately and the patients will leave the hospital in a much better condition than when they entered it. Such beliefs and trust are understandable, but unfortunately, they are not always warranted.
