Surgical errors and the human factor

Montana residents of all ages and stages of health might end up facing the need for a surgery for a variety of reasons. Whether part of a treatment regimen for a disease, reconstruction after an accident, the choice for personal reasons or something else, patients need to trust in the care of their surgical teams. The reality always remains, however, that errors can and do happen during surgeries. In some cases, these errors leave patients with long-term complications. Other patients die due to surgical errors.

Are drivers always to blame for bike accidents?

Bike accidents in Montana sometimes result in major medical bills and other types of losses: all things that you would probably not want to pay for if you had a choice. A lawsuit might help you recover some of the damages you suffered, but that is not truly the purpose of the legal system.

Social-media silence is golden

What you say matters, especially when it comes to legal disputes in Montana. Almost anything that anyone involved in a case says could make a difference in the negotiations or the final outcome. In this day in age, that general rule also extends to social media, texting and other online interactions. That is why, at Edminston and Colton Law Firm, we often advise our clients that, when it comes to talking online about an accident, silence is golden.

Voice-activated devices: What you should know

In this day and age of advanced technology, drivers are able to speak to their vehicles. You are no longer required to manually switch the radio station, make a phone call or compose a text. Instead, in-vehicle technologies work by understanding verbal commands and can carry out a myriad of tasks with just the sound of your voice. This technology, however, is not foolproof, and defects in voice-activated technology features may cause a significant amount of cognitive distraction. 

What is the average car crash settlement in Montana?

If you were injured in a car crash in Montana, the amount of money you may be able to reclaim would probably be based on your own situation. Even an experienced auto insurance professional or a personal injury attorney would probably have to look at the details of your case before making any sort of estimate as to how much money you may need to put your life back together.
