Truck accidents are often very serious and result in severe injuries due to the sheer size and weight of trucks. On average, trucks can weigh up to 20 to 30 times heavier than passenger vehicles, which means that in a collision involving a truck and a passenger vehicle, occupants of the passenger vehicle are more likely to die than occupants of the truck.
If your truck accident injury was the result of negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you suffered.

Why You Need a Truck Accident Lawyer
Truck accidents are very serious and can result in serious, catastrophic injuries, or death. The process for getting compensation for injuries sustained in a truck accident can be very complex and confusing.
In Montana, a truck accident victim must prove fault in the accident to succeed in getting compensation for their injury. Because Montana has adopted the modified comparative negligence standard for recovery of damages, an injured person can only recover damages if they are less than 50 percent at fault for the accident that caused their injury.
The insurance companies will try to avoid liability by apportioning fault to the victim. You need an experienced truck accident lawyer to investigate the accident, gather evidence from the accident scene and the truck maintenance records, and negotiate with the insurance companies to get you the largest compensation possible in your case.
