Do I need a lawyer to handle my car accident claim?
Although car accident claims share many characteristics, each accident is unique and deserves a thorough investigation and assessment. For a very minor car accident, you may not need a lawyer. But even if it turns out you don’t need a lawyer, initial consultations are always free.
It is important to understand that insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests when they offer a settlement. Insurance companies are businesses: they make profits by paying out less in settlements than they receive in premiums. Their goal, therefore, is to pay you as little as possible. Our goal is the opposite. Insurance companies know you can’t file a lawsuit without a lawyer, and they exploit that fact. Give us a call and one of our attorneys would be happy to evaluate your accident claim for free.
What should I look for in a car accident lawyer?
For starters, competence, knowledge, and experience. But what else? Someone who can relate to you, someone you feel comfortable with.
Our award-winning attorneys are highly regarded for their knowledge, expertise, and willingness to fight all the way through trial if necessary. That’s why former clients and Helena residents regularly select our attorneys as the best in Helena for the Helena Independent Record’s “Best of Helena” annual survey.

Most Vehicle Crashes are not “Accidents”
The word “accident” usually means an event that could not have been prevented. That is why the Montana Highway Patrol calls motor vehicle collisions “crashes”— the vast majority of crashes are preventable when drivers follow the safety rules. We believe car and truck crashes are a safety epidemic can be lessened when unsafe drivers know there will be serious consequences for breaking the rules.
Safe drivers understand there is a binding safety contract that protects drivers. If we follow safety rules and other drivers follow safety rules, we will all be safe. Distracted, drowsy, and drunk drivers choose to violate safety rules and threaten public safety. The Montana Department of Transportation’s 2016 crash statistics show the consequences of safety rule violations:
- Impaired driving: 3834 crashes, 128 fatalities, 297 serious injuries (9% of all crashes)
- Speeding: 5659 crashes, 47 fatalities, 146 serious injuries (13% of all crashes)
- Careless Driving: 16515 crashes, 76 fatalities, 331 serious injuries (38% of all crashes)
- Young Drivers (Age 14-20): 10903 crashes, 18 fatalities, 159 serious injuries (25% of all crashes)
- Elderly Drivers (Age 65 and older): 8617 crashes, 34 fatalities, 156 serious injuries (20% of all crashes)
