3 Types Of Personal Injury Cases

Automobile/Motorcycle Accidents

When a car or motorcycle accident happens, it usually is because someone wasn’t paying attention or following the rules of the road. In many cases, one of the drivers may be driving carelessly and recklessly. If this is the case, the person who is not following the safety rules of the road can be held responsible for an accident that caused injuries to another. A personal injury case could prove the driver to be negligent and responsible for financial compensation to the injured party.

The same can be said for injured parties of motorcycle accidents.

Slips/Falls

Imagine you are walking through a grocery store and slip on a wet floor that was recently mopped by an employee who did not put up a caution sign to indicate the floor is wet. Imagine that the fall caused a broken leg or hip! Property owners are legally responsible to keep their properties safe and free of hazards that can cause injury. Though not all slip and fall cases determine the property owner to be held liable, many do! If it is unclear or undefined to you, it is best to consult with a personal injury attorney that can help you understand the law in Montana and how to best handle the situation.

Medical Malpractice

If you have been injured or suffer damages due to the neglect and/or low standard of care provided by a medical facility or staff, it could warrant a medical malpractice case. However, not reaching your desired results after a medical treatment does not always mean that the medical staff committed malpractice. There are many instances where treatment can be associated with risks or may not guarantee a desired outcome. Also, medical facilities typically make their patients well aware of dangers and risks associated with a treatment and let their clients know up front about how accurate the results can be. Medical malpractice claims can be difficult to win, but that doesn’t mean that all are lost.
