Legal and physical protection for cyclists

Our current atmosphere in Montana is not entirely friendly to bicycle riders. However, we at the Law Firm of Edmiston & Colton believe in creating a safe and injury-free environment as much as possible, especially with regards to human factors. While we have neither control over nor recourse against the weather, your bicycle ride should never turn into a costly medical bill or severe disability because of the negligent actions or omissions of another party.

The truth about the perception of plastic surgery risks

Many people in Montana view plastic surgery as a simple process to change their looks. However, the reality is that it is actual surgery. Some procedures may not be as evasive as others, but the bottom line is mistakes and complications can happen. 

The holiday season means more trucks on the road

The onset of the holiday season means more commercial vehicles are taking to roadways across Montana and the nation to transport goods and deliver packages, but the influx of trucks can also mean enhanced danger for motorists. This time of year, truckers are more likely to face tight schedules and experience fatigue, and when these factors combine with the inclement weather that is common during winter, the results can prove deadly. At the Law Firm of Edmiston & Colton, we understand the unique dangers involved with sharing the road with trucks around the holidays, and we have helped many clients who suffered injury because of another’s negligence.

Can my vehicle’s headlights be tinted?

You may wonder if your vehicle's headlights shine too brightly on Montana's roads, perhaps necessitating some tinting to dim the impact of your lights. At the same time, many Montana motorists understand automobile standards are carefully regulated by law, including headlight performance. As it turns out, Montana law does address the question of vehicle tinting, as well as provide guidance on the question of how bright your headlights should be.

How serious are penalties for texting while driving?

Setting aside any potential risks to your well-being that may exist, the consequences of texting and driving in Montana depend largely on the context of the event: specifically, the location. The jurisdiction in which you are alleged to be texting and driving must have a law in place prohibiting such action, and the penalties associated with violations depend on the relevant municipal code. You are unlikely to receive a ticket for texting while driving on state highways due to the fact that, at the time of writing, there is no statewide law against operating vehicles while using communications devices.
