A Guide to Traumatic Brain Injuries

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a very serious condition that can have lasting health effects. In some cases, long term treatment may be required and for some injury victims it's impossible to return to their former state. The following includes the common causes of TBI and the different types of complications can occur.

Driving uninsured: the cost

No matter the severity, car accidents can be frightening, to say the least. After all is said and done, Montana drivers are often left in a confused state in regard to the steps that ensue. What will happen to monthly insurance premiums? Will those premiums increase, even when a driver was not at fault? What if there was no insurance to begin with?

Explaining negligent entrustment

Every day, new drivers take to Missoula's streets looking to increase their skills to the point of joining the ranks of Montana's responsible motorists. Most (having once been in the same position themselves) understand that new drivers need time to acclimate themselves to the road. Thus, they may be willing to give teen motorists a little leeway. Yet statistics show that teen drivers have been proven to present heightened risks to those on the road around them. Indeed, information shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that while those age 15-19 only account for 7 percent of the population in the U.S., they account for a whopping 11 percent of the country's car accident injury expenses. 

What is comparative negligence?

Turn on the news in Missoula, and you are likely to hear at least one story detailing a lawsuit in which a large settlement was given. If you been the victim of another's recklessness and are thinking of seeking such a settlement yourself, you may first want to understand the standard by which negligence is measured, and how it can effect what you can recover.
