When you’re hurt in a serious accident, you may have trouble determining who’s at fault for your injuries and suffering. You may need help recovering compensation for the injuries you suffered.

Compensation for a Great Falls Injury Claim

When you’re suing after a serious injury, you need to know what compensation you’re due for your injuries. If you don’t know what your claim is worth before you take it to a Great Falls court, you may find yourself settling for less than you’re owed. 

Great Falls residents may be eligible for compensation that covers some or all the following damages, among others: 

Can I Sue on Behalf of the Injured Party?

You may not have been the injured party—a loved one may have been injured, but they’re unable to sue. They may be unable to handle their own case because they’re a minor, or they may suffer a disability that prevents them from acting on their own. 

Your Great Falls personal injury attorney can help you act on their behalf. They can help you seek permission from the judge to act as their guardian ad litem. This designation means you and your lawyer can take their claim to court, getting them the compensation they’re due. 

Montana Laws Impacting Your Injury Claim

Even if you’re eligible and prepared to sue, state laws can impact your claim. Great Falls residents may have trouble getting compensated if they don’t consider Montana state laws. 

For example, your time to sue is limited. You only have three years after the date of the injury to sue. Some claim types may have even shorter deadlines. Because of this, you may need a lawyer’s help to act on time. 

You may also need help getting compensated if the at-fault party tries to place the blame on you. For example, you may have been distracted when the accident happened. The at-fault party may claim that, because you were distracted, you didn’t prevent the accident. If you don’t build a strong defense with your lawyer’s help, your compensation may be reduced or even dismissed completely.
