When you are injured in an automobile accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation and damages from the at-fault driver. However, the legal process associated with such a lawsuit can be daunting, particularly if you attempt to handle it alone.

Frederick Overby, we will work tirelessly to help ensure your rights are protected and you obtain the damages you deserve. Mr. Overby will personally make sure every witness is questioned and all evidence is properly examined and investigated ― including the accident scene.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Regardless of whether you are dealing with a car wreck or truck collision, it is typically inaccurate to label it as an "accident". After all, to call a car crash an "accident" implies that no one was at fault, when that is simply not the case in most instances. In fact, a great deal of auto wrecks are caused by a negligent individual, such as a:

  • Distracted or texting driver
  • Drunk driver
  • Reckless or speeding driver
  • Fatigued truck driver

Not only may these drivers be held legally accountable if they cause you injury, but you may also be able to seek damages if a car accident leads to the death of a family member.

Employers May Also Be Liable For Employee Misconduct

Under Montana law, it is possible that a company/employer may be liable when you are injured by one of its employees ― a legal tenet known as vicarious liability. For instance, this type of liability may apply when an employee is acting within the "scope" of his or her employment at the time he or she causes a car accident or other injury.

In a similar nature, police departments and/or the government may be liable when an individual officer negligently causes a wreck. However, as with all legal disputes, it is best to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney if you believe you may have a legitimate claim.
