Air ambulance costs are an expensive part of serious injuries

The scenery is pristine as you and your outfit rumble up the mountains. The engine of your ATVs is the only sound that interrupts the peace of the moment. Led by your guide, your group embarks up a steep path knowing that the trail will be rough, but the view on the other side will be magnificent. As you make your way up the face of the mountain, you come across a particularly rough patch. You're not sure if you should keep going with your ATVs or hike the rest of the way. Suddenly, your partner gives their ATV a little too much gas and they roll.

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.

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.

When poor vision causes a crash

There are a smorgasbord of reasons why people are involved in motor vehicle crashes, whether they happen because of intoxication or roads that have been covered in ice. However, our firm realizes that other causes, some of which are ignored by certain people, can result in a fatal collision or an accident that leaves victims with debilitating injuries. For example, someone whose eyesight is poor may cause an accident if they ignore their problems with vision and get behind the wheel.

Those who are just learning to drive on Bozeman's roads may need time to build up their skills to the point of being considered truly competent behind the wheel. Until then, one might expect their lack of experience (and in some cases, perhaps even a certain degree of recklessness) to make put them at a greater risk of causing or being involved in accidents. 

Detailing the duty to render aid in Montana

Certainly no one in Bozeman wants to be involved in a car accident. Perhaps even more than the fear of injury or sustaining damage to their vehicles, people want to avoid accidents simply because they do not want to have to deal with the consequences that come with them. It may be this desire more than anything else that prompts people to leave the scene of an automobile collision before the authorities can arrive. Indeed, according to information shared by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, as many as 11 percent of accidents reported to the law enforcement involve at least one driver who flees the scene. 

What are the consequences of distracted driving?

Each day, drivers become distracted while they are in control of a vehicle for various reasons. Often, cell phones are the reason why a driver becomes distracted, whether they are responding to a text message, reading an email or talking to someone. However, there are many other types of behavior that can result in distracted driving, which has serious consequences for people across the state of Montana.

Rollover crash near Bonner claims 2 lives

To have to suffer through the loss of a loved one in a car accident in Bozeman may be unbearable. What might make such an ordeal even more so is if it is later learned that the negligent or reckless actions of another might have contributed to such a tragedy. Often, people assign the blame for car accidents to either other motorists one the road or, in the case of single car crashes, the actions of the drivers themselves. Yet what about instances where the unexplained acts of a passenger contributed to a collision?
