Can a car wreck paralyze you?

Winter has arrived in Montana, and with it comes more automobile accidents. Unfortunately, you stand a good chance of becoming involved in one of them and the results could be catastrophic. For instance, if you injure your neck or back in your accident, you could sever your spinal cord and become paralyzed.

Fatigued driving is preventable and must be stopped

Some adults think they are invincible and take risks that they shouldn't take. One example is driving when they are too fatigued to do so safely. This puts that driver, as well as anyone else on the road, in danger of being involved in a crash. Unfortunately, this doesn't stop fatigued drivers from getting out on the roads.

What is loss of consortium?

If your loved one loses his or her life in a Montana car crash or other catastrophic event, you can sue the negligent party responsible for the accident for wrongful death. As part of your damages that you can collect, you can sue for loss of consortium.

Truck driver clearinghouse designed to reduce accidents

Large trucks are a force to be reckoned with on the roadways. In addition to their massive size, large trucks may have multiple trailers or have big loads that can cause issues when driving alongside other vehicles on the road. It only makes matters worse when truck drivers operate their tractor trailers while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. Surprisingly, a number of truckers have been taken out of service after law enforcement officials found that they were driving under the influence. As a way to minimize the number of accidents caused by drunk truck drivers, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has developed a Commercial Driver’s License Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse.

How common is failure to diagnose?

When you get sick in Montana, the first thing you expect your doctor or the emergency room to do is to diagnose your symptoms. Then you expect them to give you the appropriate treatment and prescribe whatever medications you need to get you back to your busy life. Unfortunately, however, the health care professionals you trust may not live up to your expectations.
