In 2018, there were 593 motorcycle crashes in Montana. Of these crashes, there were 21 fatalities and 120 serious injuries. There were hundreds of other injuries, as well. The year was one of the lowest for fatalities in recent years, beaten out only by 2016 with 18 fatalities. Hundreds of bikers across the state were impacted by crashes. Many of these individuals were due compensation for their injuries. But as is so often the case, too few received fair compensation under the law.
After a crash, one of the first phone calls you will receive is from the insurance company. The adjuster will ask you about the crash and, after considering your injuries and the cause of the crash, will present you with a settlement offer. The insurance companies are in business to make money, so these offers often represent far less than you are entitled to under the law. Without proper legal representation, in fact, you will likely receive much less than you deserve.

When bikers take to the road, they do not expect to be involved in a crash. But motorists often fail to notice motorcycles. Another major cause of crashes is drivers who are otherwise occupied. Too often drivers are talking on their cell phones, texting, talking to others in the car, adjusting their stereo, or simply not attending to the road. These drivers make the road unsafe for everyone. When such drivers cause accidents, we believe they should be held responsible. Bikers who have been driving responsibly should be fairly compensated when they are hurt in crashes.
