A legal claim arises when serious injury or even death occur as the result of the negligent (carelessness) act of another. Montana roadway collisions account for a large part of the wrongful injuries which occur Montana has one of the highest fatality rate in the nation. Montana was in fact ranked to most deadly in the Nation as with the highest fatality rate per mile driven than any other state according to the U.S. Census Bureau. In 2009 221 people were killed on the dangerous roadways. The total number of injuries was 7,351 and the number of severe injuries was 1,331. If you were involved in a roadway accident and you were injured, it is a good probability it was a severe injury and should be compensated as such.
There is an even higher probability that you were a victim of an intoxicated driver. 41.7% of all traffic fatalities in Montana involve an intoxicated driver. As former prosecutors, the attorneys at Bliven Law Firm, P.C. worked to keep intoxicated drivers off the street. We continue this work by representing victims of intoxicated drivers in civil actions against drivers who injure other while under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs or a combination thereof. Even driving while under the influence of legal drugs when it impairs driving is a serious matter.
In the case of Wrongful Death there may be additional claims brought on the part of the estate and on the part of loved ones. The statute of limitations can be very short, possibly as short as a year. A statute of limitations is a time period which is set by law to bring a claim for wrongful injury or death. If a claim is not filed on time, then it will be barred and there will be no recovery allowed. As a result, if wrongfully you should contact competent legal assistance as soon as possible. It does not matter how serious or how bad or wrongful the conduct if a legal claim is not filed in Court in time.
