Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

An experienced personal injury attorney will properly investigate every claim. They will evaluate insurance policies, calculate damages, and manage all communications and documentation with the court, opposing counsel, and other parties. Personal injury claims can start off small and become more complex as the investigation unfolds, which is why having a skilled attorney on your side is often necessary.

The main focus after an accident is recovery, and an attorney’s main focus will be to get you the compensation and justice you deserve. Generally, compensation for an injury sustained from the misconduct or negligence of someone else will include:

These are the common types of damages, but you could also be eligible for additional compensation and losses.

Filing a Personal Injury Case in Montana

It is always important to know how much time you have to file a case. In Montana, the time limit or statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit is three years from the date of your accident or injury. Also, it is possible that both parties in the lawsuit (you and the wrongdoer) can both be found partly at fault. This is known as a modified comparative fault rule.

Additionally, there is a cap, or limit, on damages for personal injury claims. Damages are in place to make the victim whole again, which is why courts will prohibit award amounts that are unconscionable.

An investigation leading up to filing a claim for personal injury will likely determine the fault and expected damages. After an attorney has established the client’s case, they will then file the necessary documents with the court. Usually, a case will start with settlement negotiations to avoid the court process.
