Need advice about Personal Injury Law? Personal injury law covers many different situations and provides the opportunity for an injured person to sue another person at fault for those injuries.
Some areas of the law our attorneys can help you with include:
- Dog bites
- Spinal injury
- Brain injury
- Bicycle accidents
- Third party wrongful death
- Product liability
- Recreational injury
- Automobile negligence
- Catastrophic injury
- Commercial vehicle liability
- Electrical injury
- Head injury
- Motor vehicle accidents and injuries
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian injuries
- Severe burns
Catastrophic injuries arise in different forms. They include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, damage to sight, or nerve damage to name a few. Whether it is the result of a slip and fall, an auto accident, a victim of a drunk driver, a defective product, a work-related accident, or other intentional or negligent cause, the financial and emotional effects to a victim can be enormous. Often such injuries result in a lifetime of medical treatment and continuous life-care support. Victims may also face years or decades of lost income because of disability. Such injuries, in short, can lead to drastic changes in the lives of individuals.
A plaintiff who is successful at making a personal injury claim may be entitled to lost income, past and future medical costs, pain and suffering and emotional distress compensation. Many personal injury claims settle out of court, sometimes at a Settlement Mediation. If an out of court settlement does not occur, the personal injury case may make it to a judge or jury who will decide first on fault and then on damages.
Because of the potential great damages involved in catastrophic injuries, it is particularly important that the injured claimant retain a law firm with exceptional expertise, an established record of proven successes. The attorneys at Spoon Gordon, PC can help you determine your legal rights, give you examples of personal injury settlements and give you an idea of your chances of receiving compensation for your losses.
Unfortunately, injuries happen. Although they come in all different shapes and sizes, compensable injuries can include slip and falls, pedestrian/bicycle/motorcycle incidents, recreational accidents, traumatic brain injuries, and even wrongful death. It can be tough to know when should you hire a lawyer for yourself or a deceased loved one. We have a reputation for getting results. If fact, our firm has secured millions of dollars for our past clients and is always available to provide free consultations to those with questions. All personal injury and wrongful death matters are handled on a contingency fee basis – you pay nothing unless and until we win or settle your case.

It can be tough to make the leap, but our caring and knowledgeable attorneys and staff will be there every step of the way. We aggressively advocate for our client’s rights under Montana law and take the stress of dealing with insurance companies and hospital bills off of your plate.
I Was Injured, But Haven’t Pursued Medical Attention. Is It Too Late?
No. Often times, it can be hard to tell what your injuries are immediately after an accident, such as a slip and fall. It can be days or even weeks to fully feel and appreciate the injuries you may have sustained. It is not too late to seek treatment, and we always tell our clients that getting your health back to where it was pre-accident is the #1 priority.
What Can I Do To Help My Case?
Document everything and keep detailed records. Keep your attorney up to date on your treatment and your healing process. We frequently recommend our clients keep journals about major life changes or adjustments they have had to make, and even daily impairments that they or their loved ones notice. The more detailed and self-reflective you are, the easier it will be for your attorney to accurately explain and document your injuries later down the road because memories fade and it can be difficult to recall the full impact of an injury months or even years later.
Can I Still Hire An Attorney If My Loved One Passed Away?
Absolutely. The personal representative of the estate, often times the executor of the will, may bring a claim for damages against the person or entity who caused the death. Wrongful death occurs when a person dies because of another person’s actions, either intentional or negligent. If you have had a loved one die due to someone else’s negligence, call us today – we will help you through every step of this difficult process.
