When you are seeking compensation from the party at fault of an accident, you may need to think outside the box. At Odegaard Kovacich Snipes, our Montana injury lawyers focus on helping plaintiffs seek compensation from third parties who may be partially responsible for their accident.
For example, if you are involved in an accident while driving a delivery truck, the obvious choice may be to pursue a workers' compensation claim.
What you may not know is that you also have the right to sue an individual who was individually responsible for the crash. For example, you may be able to sue a distracted driver, the city if dangerous road conditions caused the accident, or even the manufacturer if there was a defect in your vehicle.
Our Montana accident lawyers can also conduct their research to determine which third-party claims have the most merit, and will then pursue those claims.
For instance, we can help you contact an insurance carrier and notify them that an accident occurred with one of their policyholders. Our firm will then provide additional details about the accident; if the third-party insurer agrees that its policyholder caused the accident, then the insurance company may pay for your accident expenses. In some cases, you won't even need to involve your insurer if the other driver carries the proper type of insurance and amount of protection.
Odegaard Kovacich Snipes is focused on helping you with your case regardless of your situation, and will advise you on your case and help determine if there are any other individuals who were responsible for your accident.
