Millions of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents each year – many very seriously. According to statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, someone in the United States is involved in a car accident every 10 seconds. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you need an experienced car accident lawyer to help you preserve your rights and to fight for the compensation you are entitled to get under Montana law for your medical and other accident-related expenses and for your injuries. There are so many variables involved in car accidents that affect the outcome of any claims arising from them, and the best way to handle a particular auto accident case is different, depending on the individual circumstances. As a result, it is essential to seek advice from a lawyer who has a broad range of experience with many types of accidents and injuries to make sure your rights are fully protected and you are compensated for all of the injuries you sustained.
It is also critical that procedural and filing requirements are handled the right way because a victim has one opportunity only to seek compensation for all injuries and damages that arise from an accident. If a deadline is missed or an injury is not properly documented by gathering information from witnesses, taking photographs, and seeking the appropriate medical treatment, for example, the chance to recover damages may be lost forever.
The cost of car accident-related medical treatment can reach well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the severity of injuries suffered can range from temporary discomfort to chronic problems to permanent disability or even death. The risk is too great not to seek the advice of an experienced car accident lawyer if you’ve been injured.
