Motorcycle accident cases are those which concern instances in which a motorcycle rider is injured through the carelessness of another driver. The difference between motorcycle accidents and other accidents, unfortunately, is that motorcycles are much smaller and lighter than other vehicles, meaning that when a motorcycle is struck by a car or truck, the motorcycle rider almost always loses. The same accident that would perhaps cause little or no injuries to the occupant of a car can mean serious injury or even death to a motorcycle rider.
Insurance companies often have biases against motorcycle accident victims. A Montana personal injury attorney with experience representing motorcycle accident victims can help motorcycle riders receive fair compensation for their injuries.
Heavier and larger than other vehicles with which they share the road, semi-trucks present unique hazards to other drivers. When large trucks are involved in auto accidents, affected drivers may be severely injured and saddled with expensive medical costs. Truck accident cases involve unique issues because truck drivers are professional drivers who have duties beyond the regular driver. They are required to maintain log books and rest at regular intervals. Unfortunately, as a former over-the-road truck driver, I know that trucking companies can put demands on truck drivers which result in unsafe conditions. And, when a semi-truck is involved in an accident with a motor vehicle, the motor vehicle occupant almost always is at a risk of sustaining serious injuries.
Accidents involving trains don’t happen often, but when they do, the damage caused can be catastrophic. When a train collides with another moving vehicle, the lives of passengers and bystanders can be devastated by trauma, severe injury, or death. Often, injuries are permanent or require life-long medical treatment.
At every construction site in Montana, there are multiple parties responsible for ensuring safety. When an accident does occur, everyone from the owner of the property to the contractor can potentially be held liable if their failure to meet the safety standards imposed by law results in an injury.
