Montana Truck Accident Lawyer
If you’ve been injured in a Montana truck accident, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Reach out to a lawyer to learn more about your claim.
Commercial trucks may be a common sight on the highway, but that doesn’t mean an accident involving one can’t turn dangerous or even deadly in an instant.
At Craig Swapp & Associates, we know these accidents can be devastating, and we know it can be difficult to recover when you’re hurt and suffering. Your Montana truck accident lawyer wants to help you recover a settlement when you’re struggling to get compensated fairly for your claim.
Who’s Liable for a Montana Truck Accident?
When you’re hurt by a truck driver, your first thought may be to seek compensation from the driver. They may have been distracted, for example, or they may have been drowsy while on a long haul.
But they’re not always the ones legally responsible for your injuries. You may instead need to seek compensation from their employer. Employers are responsible for their employees’ actions when they injure others. Determining who the driver works for can be difficult, so talk with your truck accident lawyer about identifying the at-fault party.
Compensation for a Montana Truck Accident
When you’re hurt by a truck crash, you need to know what your claim is worth before you go to court. You may find yourself paying out of pocket for your suffering if you don’t know what your damages, or the impacts and costs of your accident, are worth.
If you’ve been hurt in a Montana truck accident, talk to your lawyer about seeking compensation for your damages, which may include the following:
- Hospital costs
- Lost earnings
- Property damage
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
What if I’m Partly At Fault for the Truck Accident?
But you’re not guaranteed compensation just because you file a Montana truck accident claim. The at-fault party may claim you were partly responsible for the accident, for example, and if you don’t defend your claim, you may lose part or all of your compensation.
As an example, the at-fault party may claim you were 20 percent at fault for the accident. If you don’t seek evidence showing you weren’t at fault, you could only receive 80 percent of the funds you’re due.
Fortunately, that’s where your lawyer can help. We have the resources you need to defend your claim and get the full compensation you’re owed, not just a portion.
