Montana trauma centers treat accident-related injuries

All Montana hospitals are equipped to provide trauma care to crash victims with accident-related injuries. However specific trauma facilities exist to offer a higher level of treatment to victims in severe situations as necessary. The financial burdens that often accompany extensive treatment at a trauma facility can be staggering for a person who has accident-related injuries inflicted by another driver.

A person who has experienced multiple accident-related injuries may be facing a life-threatening emergency and require extensive care beyond the capabilities of a general emergency room. Transfer to a trauma center could allow treatment for a myriad of dangerous damage that was inflicted. Surgeons, physicians, ICU availability and rehabilitation specialists are able to provide care in one location, potentially making a difference in the survival of a car accident victim.

When a victim with accident-related injuries is transported to a trauma facility, the staff is notified as the patient is in route increasing response time and success. Trauma centers often have access to the most updated processes available, increasing the success rate of patients treated. Hospitals with trauma centers are listed with different levels of care; level one and two. Montana does not retain a level one facility, but has four level two trauma locations.

A victim from with accident-related injuries is vastly different from someone experiencing cardiovascular emergencies. This may warrant a transfer to a Montana trauma center so a victim can receive the necessary medical attention for their car accident trauma. When a person is faced with extreme medical expenses for treatment caused by the negligence of another driver, they may be eligible to seek restitution for the financial burdens through a personal injury lawsuit.
