Tips to help bicyclists stay safer on the roads

Riding bicycles is a fantastic way to get some exercise, experience the outdoors in a new way, save gas and reduce pollution. Bicyclists in Montana need to take additional precautions when they ride on roads that they share with automobiles. When cyclists collide with a car, the results can be devastating from traumatic head injuries to broken bones and death.

Could you be in danger from a truck rollover?

Large trucks are a common sight on interstates and city roads. While you know that trucks are essential to move goods through Montana and across the country, you are also aware that they can pose a danger to you and your family, especially when you are traveling at high speeds. You might wonder if rollovers are one of these dangers.

Will your doctor reveal a surgical mistake?

When you undergo surgery in a Montana hospital, you do not expect that anything will go wrong during your operation. Unfortunately, however, medical errors do occur in the operating room and other departments of hospitals throughout the country. Today, more than 250,000 patients die annually from them, making medical errors the third leading cause of death in the United States.

State Supreme Court rules on expert witness dispute

One of the more important elements of medical malpractice cases is expert testimony. Most people in Billings may lack the medical knowledge and expertise needed to challenge a clinician's actions or decision-making. Thus, one who has similar expertise as those who are the subject of a medical negligence claim is typically needed to offer an educated opinion as to whether said parties acted appropriately. The process of qualifying an expert witness goes beyond simply saying one is so, however. Plaintiffs must follow the state's processes for doing so or risk having the basis of their cases challenged.
