Car accidents: Weather and other issues often factors

When motor vehicle collisions occur in Montana or anywhere, investigators often have to work for weeks to determine who or what may have caused a particular crash. Car accidents the result in fatalities are especially tragic. In fact, a recent report published the names of four victims who died in a two-car collision last month.

Medical negligence: Is it connected to worker fatigue?

In Montana and throughout the United States, many people reside full-time in nursing homes. A majority of residents are elderly, while some have perhaps never fully recovered from car accident injuries or other adverse health situations, thus prompting a need for assisted-living care. Regardless of exact events that lead a person to transition to nursing home residence, every patient currently residing in such facilities deserves high quality care. In short, there is no excuse for medical negligence.

Do hands-free devices really help avoid car accidents?

Advanced technology has definitely added convenience and ease to modern life. For instance, Montana travelers no longer have to try to spread road maps out in the front seat when they can simply GPS their way to a destination instead. Cellphones and other electronic devices can place drivers at risk for collisions although many people say hands-free devices are much safer to use and can help avoid car accidents, which begs the question: Is that true?

Double-check any trucking company settlement offer

While it is unfortunate, fact is that you will probably not find any of the responsible parties leaping out of their seats to fully compensate you for your injuries after a truck accident in Montana. Yes: You may receive offers that seem reasonable at first. You may even receive pressure to accept those offers from family, friends and the parties involved in your incident.
