We get it at Braukmann Law, PLLC. We know how complicated accidents can be. That’s why we want to help. Personal injury attorney Matthew Braukmann knows the law and understands how the legal system works in Montana. Put your trust in a personal injury lawyer who won’t back down from a tough case.
When do I need to take legal action after an accident?
You have a limited amount of time (known as the statute of limitations) to take legal action. In Montana, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is three years. However, we strongly recommend acting much sooner than that, because personal injury cases are won and lost based on evidence—and the evidence you need to build a strong case might not be there if you wait too long. Memories fade. Witnesses move away. Camera footage is deleted or overwritten. Physical evidence is washed away over time by weather.
That’s why it’s critical that you contact us right away. Attorney Braukmann will go the extra mile to build a strong case and advocate for your rights while you focus on getting better.
How much does it cost to hire a personal injury lawyer?
Most attorneys who handle personal injury claims work on a contingency fee basis. That means injury victims only have to pay their lawyer if the attorney obtains a financial settlement or verdict for them. If the attorney doesn’t get their client any money, they don’t have to pay their lawyer a cent.
Our law firm works this way because we realize that injury victims already have enough to worry about after their personal injury accident. When you hire us to handle your injury claim, you don’t have to worry about whether or not you can afford an experienced personal injury lawyer. We can handle your case while you can focus on what matters most – recovering from your injury.
What can I be compensated for?
Your injury claim should cover all your injury-related expenses. What you might not realize is just how many expenses you can and should be compensated for after your accident. It’s not just short-term expenses like emergency surgery or other medical care at St. Vincent Healthcare or Billings Clinic. You should also be compensated for long-term expenses, even if they occur years after your injury. Such expenses can include:
- Physical therapy
- Prescription medications, such as for chronic pain
- Replacement income if you cannot work while you’re recovering from your injury
- Lost future income if you cannot return to work due to a permanent disability
- Pain and suffering in many circumstances
Remember, you didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior. Demand the money you deserve. Talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer today.
How much is my injury claim worth?
There’s no set dollar amount when it comes to injury claims. Some might be worth a few thousand dollars. Others might be worth significantly more. Even similar accidents and injuries can be worth very different amounts.
The bottom line is you should be financially compensated for all your injury-related expenses, past and future. Unfortunately, insurance companies often only take into account short term expenses. That’s a deliberate strategy so that they can make lowball settlement claim offers soon after an injury.
This is why it’s important to talk an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. Your attorney can review the details of your case and provide you with an accurate estimate for how much your injury claim may be worth. Your lawyer can then work with you to demand the money you deserve to recover and live your life on your terms.
We handle all types of personal injury cases
Accidents in Billings can cover a wide range. We stand up for people who are hurt due to property owners’ negligence, an area of law called premises liability. This includes slip and fall accidents, negligent security, dog bites, and other matters caused by dangerous conditions.
We also represent victims of medical malpractice in hospitals, doctor’s offices or any other medical setting, as well as nursing home abuse and neglect. You have every right to expect a medical provider to meet standards of care when treating you or a loved one, and you have the right to legal recourse when those standards of care aren’t met. And we represent families in wrongful death matters when negligence leads to a fatality.
In short, if you’ve been injured or lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence, whether in Billings or anywhere else in Montana, we can answer your questions and protect your rights. Find out how we can help you. Schedule your free case evaluation right now at Braukmann Law PLLC.
Put your trust in a personal injury attorney who puts your needs first
You might think you don’t need a lawyer if someone did something to cause your injury or accident. Because they clearly did something wrong, their insurance company will financially compensate you, correct?
Don’t be so sure. In many cases, many personal injury accidents and other legal cases turn out to be far more complicated. The person responsible for your injury might deny doing anything wrong. Their insurance company will often do anything they can to reduce or deny your insurance claim.
You have too much at risk to leave your future to chance. Accident-related expenses often add up to thousands or even millions of dollars. If your accident claim is denied, you could end up having to pay all those bills out of your own pocket – even though you did nothing wrong.
We can help you demand the justice you deserve. Contact our law firm and schedule an appointment, free of charge, with an experienced personal injury lawyer who puts your best interests first – attorney Matthew D. Braukmann.
