About Montana Car Accidents
Car accidents are a leading cause of personal injury, loss, and accidental death in Montana and nationwide. According to state statistics, 433 individuals in Montana alone were injured in motor vehicle collisions in 2015, and an additional 224 victims were killed. The number of deaths represents a startling increase of 17 percent over the previous year. Accident statistics become all too real when you are a victim of an accident or lose a beloved family member to a motor vehicle crash. The fallout can include painful, debilitating injuries such as severe burns and brain injuries, significant medical expenses, loss of income, and much emotional stress and trauma.
Determining Liability for Recovery
Many accident victims suffer through no fault of their own, but are casualties of someone else’s behavior. The primary causes of serious accidents are excessive speeding, impairment by alcohol or drugs, and distracted driving. These actions are considered negligent, reckless, or even criminal, and victims may be entitled to substantial compensation.
If you are the victim of a careless driver, it is in your best interest to speak to an experienced attorney at Murphy Law as soon as possible. Insurance adjusters are in the business of deflecting blame from their clients and avoiding paying high-dollar claims. Our attorneys know how to ensure liability is placed exactly where it should be.
Determining liability is very important in Montana, which is a modified comparative fault state. This means the amount of blame for an accident attributed to each party affects the amount of recoverable damages. If you are found to be 20 percent at fault for a crash, your damages are decreased by 20 percent. If the other party successfully claims you are 50 percent at fault, your damages can drop to zero.
