Family of four killed in catastrophic car accident

Thanksgiving is generally a time when families get together and celebrate. Many motorists travel during this time, and inclement weather conditions can make it difficult to get to one’s destination. As the roads are filled with holiday travelers, it is crucial that people take caution when navigating the roadways around other motorists. While it is generally a happy time of year, unfortunate tragedies occur.

What is patient dumping and how is it harmful?

As you know, medical emergencies are rarely predictable. You might be taken to the hospital in an ambulance without having your identification with you, or your elderly parent might be admitted but, due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, is unable to inform the nurses and doctors of whom to contact to pick him or her up. It can be frightening to think that patients are discharged from hospitals in uncertain conditions, but unfortunately for people in Montana and elsewhere, this type of thing happens.

Montana vehicular fatalities on the decline

People in Montana enjoy some of the most amazing natural beauty to be experienced anywhere in the country. The wide open roads can bring a sense of freedom and safety that sometimes is not accurate. Whether in town or on rural roads, car accidents can and do happen and may cause serious, lifelong injuries or even death. Records from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that vehicular fatalities across Montana have actually declined. While this is very positive, clearly more is needed to continue this trend and too many people continue to die on Montana roads and highways.
