Accidents on the Road: Car, Trucking, Motorcycle, and Bicycle Accidents
Every time you drive you run the risk of being involved in a serious accident. While you may not give it much thought, mishaps happen every day, and when they do the consequences can be devastating. Physically debilitating injuries, medical bills, lost income and emotional distress are all issues that stem from vehicle accidents, and are often grounds for compensation if negligence and/or misconduct can be proven. If you have been a victim of one of the following accident types, we are ready to fight on your behalf:
Montana is a “fault” state, meaning that proving fault and liability is the most important part of your case when pursuing damages and compensation. In most cases, the driver found to be at-fault will be responsible for financial damages to the other injured party, typically through his or her insurance company. Motorists are responsible for driving safely each and every time they hit the road, and when a failure to do so causes injury to another driver, the at-fault party may be held responsible for the accident.
If you are found to be partially at-fault for an injury-causing accident, there’s a good chance your financial damages will be reduced. Montana’s comparative fault laws work on a percentage basis – for example, if it’s proven that the other driver was 60 percent responsible for the accident but you were 40 percent responsible, you will only receive 60 percent of the final awarded damages. Every situation is different, and speaking with a Montana auto accident attorney can help you decide what steps to take next.
Statute of Limitations
In the state of Montana, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury suit is typically three years from the date of the accident. If a driver is struck by a public entity on duty, such as a police officer or other public employee, additional action must be taken before you can file suit for compensation. It goes without saying that acting fast is crucial when seeking compensation for personal injuries sustained in an auto accident. Attorney Michael Rabb shoulders the burden for his clients by handling all the legal issues that may arise in such situations.
Trucking is often a grueling job. It can also be one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, as big rigs can cause significant damage and injury in an accident. Traumatic head injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, broken bones, disability and death are all potential consequences, and it’s for this reason that trucking accidents are some of the most complicated and delicate cases attorney Michael Rabb takes on. Montana is a hub for trucking traffic, with thousands of vehicles criss-crossing our roads each and every day. If you are a driver or have recently been involved in an accident involving a big rig in Montana, The Rabb Law Firm, PLLC can help you obtain the outcome you deserve.
Slip and fall accidents happen all the time on public, private and/or government property. Perhaps a spill wasn’t properly addressed, the ground was uneven or some other hazard caused an injury that could have easily been avoided with proper maintenance and care. Someone is at fault when an accident occurs on any type of property, and if the accident was a result of the property owner’s negligence and/or misconduct, a lawsuit may be necessary to receive just compensation. Attorney Michael Rabb has handled numerous personal injury cases regarding slip and falls. He has the experience and skill set necessary to advise you on the best solution for your situation, whether that be settling or taking the case to court.
Manufacturers prioritize profits above all else, and they will go to great lengths in order to avoid being held responsible for a defective product. They may try to pay you off to keep you quiet, but too often these quick settlements aren’t nearly enough to cover the costs your injury has incurred, and they certainly won’t help pay for additional complications that may arise in the future. If you have been injured due to a defective product, attorney Michael Rabb can help. Don’t settle for what the manufacturers want to give you — get every penny you deserve by allowing Michael to handle your products liability case.
