Piecing your life together after a Thanksgiving crash

Each year, families across the country come together to celebrate Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, this holiday can also increase the likelihood of a motor vehicle wreck happening. If you were hurt in an accident that occurred on Thanksgiving, your life may have been overturned in multiple ways. Perhaps you are reading this post in a hospital bed or maybe you have recently returned home. Either way, it is vital to know your rights and pursue any tools that can help you recover.

Can you become "mad as a hatter?"

Like most in Bozeman, you probably attribute the term "mad as a hatter" as having originated with the Mad Hatter character from Lewis Carroll's novel "Alice in Wonderland." Yet in actuality, the term was used long before then to describe an occupational illness. Felt was often used in the making of hats, and mercury nitrate was a common component used in its fabrication. This led to countless hatmakers contracting erethism due to mercury exposure, which is characterized by delirium, hallucinations and even suicidal tendencies. 

Understanding the Eggshell Skull Rule

Whenever someone in Bozeman loses a loved one due to another's negligent actions, it may be easy for most to understand the motivation to hold such negligent parties accountable through a wrongful death lawsuit. However, simply because negligence is alleged to have caused a death does not mean that those affected are automatically entitled to collect damages. It must first be proven how the allegedly negligent party contributed to the tragedy. 

Halloween celebrations and traffic accidents

During Halloween, the chances of auto accidents occurring may be even greater for various reasons. Aside from a noticeable increase in pedestrian and vehicle traffic due to trick-or-treating and other holiday celebrations, some people also get behind the wheel after drinking too much on Halloween. Sadly, these behaviors can increase the likelihood of a crash which may cause devastating injuries or even the loss of innocent lives. If you were involved in an accident that occurred on or around Halloween, this may sound all too familiar. Whether you are facing the loss of someone you loved or a serious injury, our law firm recognizes the importance of assessing different options on the table and moving forward.
