Experienced Motorcycle Accidents Attorney Representing Montana Personal Injury Victims
Traveling by motorcycle is fun, cost-efficient, and exhilarating. Unfortunately, it also leaves its riders and passengers more vulnerable to injury than those commuting in cars and trucks by design. It also seems as though many motorists are less sympathetic to motorcycle accident victims than victims of accidents involving other vehicles. At The Rabb Law Firm, we believe all clients deserve the best possible representation and pledge to provide that to you.
Seeking Compensation Following a Motorcycle Accident
If you or a passenger has sustained injuries in an accident caused by another driver, we can most likely help you collect compensation from the other involved parties. Financial damages are intended to cover your resulting medical expenses, lost wages, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering in the most severe cases.
Understanding Applicable Laws
In Montana, motorcycle riders are not required by law to wear helmets. That being said, we cannot stress enough how much safer it is to wear one. Whether you or your passenger were wearing a helmet or not, we can still prove fault on behalf of the other driver.
It is also important to remember that Montana is a comparative negligence insurance state. What this means is that, as the plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit, you can only collect damages if it is determined that your actions contributed less than 50% of the blame for the accident. For example, if the judge determines you are 10% responsible for the accident, you may only collect 90% of the damages named in the suit.
