Understanding the damage caps in wrongful death cases

If you’ve had a family member die prematurely in Bozeman, then you may left scrambling trying to recover from the void that he or she may have left in your life. Many come to us here at Cok Kinzler PLLP following the death of a loved seeking legal recourse, yet unsure if the potential reward from any action can adequately compensate for their losses. No monetary judgment will be equal to having your loved one back in your life, yet a wrongful death settlement may come close to easing the burden he or she left behind. Before seeking such a reward, however, you may find it beneficial to understand any potential judgment limitations the state of Montana has in place.

Assigning liability when nursery products injure children

Parents of newborns and toddlers in Bozeman no doubt go to great lengths to ensure their nursery products are safe. Yet no amount of product research can eliminate the dangers that certain items may pose to infants. Should a baby or toddler be injured or killed by a nursery product, one might inevitably question who is to blame.

Detailing the legal doctrine of negligent entrustment

Many in Bozeman may joke about how you will need to watch out once their teens start driving. While the notion of reckless teenage drivers is often presented as a joke, many of those that we here at Cok Kinzler PLLP have worked with may have firsthand experience of the risks that newly licensed drivers pose. If you have been involved in an accident that was caused by a teen, then you could potentially be placed in the position of having to hold him or her legally responsible. Yet does the legal liability for your accident only extend to the teen, or can it also be applied to his or her parents?

Evaluating healthcare-associated infections

Most in Bozeman head to the hospital or doctor’s office expecting to find relief from their ailments, not to have their problems exacerbated. However, many may find out that the mere act of seeking treatment can put them in harm’s way. According to information shared by the World Health Organization, healthcare-associated infections are the most commonly reported adverse event related to healthcare in the entire world, with seven out of every 100 patients in developed countries at risk of acquiring one.
