There are many reasons that you should be represented by counsel following an accident. These are just a few:

Our attorneys will make certain you understand your rights. Montana accident claims are complex because all drivers are required by law to obtain liability insurance, but many fail to do so. As a result, claims can be made not only against the driver, but also under your policy without negative impact to your insurance claim rating. In addition, claims will be made for the payment of your medical bills, not only through your health insurance carrier, but also through medical payment coverage which may be available not only through your policy but also while making a claim for damages against the negligent driver.

Attorneys at Datsopoulos, MacDonald & Lind, P.C. have decades of collective experience in valuing automobile accident claims. When you make a personal injury claim after a car accident, the case could be resolved in different ways. One way is to settle out of court for an agreed-upon sum. Another way is to sue and let a judge or jury decide what you deserve.

In order to determine whether you should settle – and for how much – you need to know what your personal injury claim is actually worth. This can be difficult to determine. While every personal injury case is different, there are certain things you should be compensated for in a car accident lawsuit including pain and suffering, hospital, medical bills, and lost income or wages. At Datsopoulos, MacDonald & Lind, P.C., our lawyers have decades of experience in car accident claims in Montana and will help you estimate the value of your claim. Knowing the value of your case is essential to make sure you do not leave money on the table and that you get enough compensation to allow you to rebuild your life after suffering a serious car accident and personal injury.

Our attorneys can negotiate with the insurance company. Insurance companies are not looking out for your best interests. They are not trying to make sure you are fairly compensated for all your losses. Insurance companies want to hold on to their money so they can be profitable. They have a team of lawyers and experts who help them do that. This is true both when you are trying to get money from your own insurance company and when you are trying to get money from another driver’s insurer.

You deserve to have a knowledgeable advocate who can deal with the insurance companies on your behalf. Datsopoulos, MacDonald & Lind, P.C. attorneys understand car accident laws and insurance laws and can review and interpret your policy and value your claim.

Settling out of court could be preferable to avoid the time, stress and expense of a trial – as long as a fair settlement is reached.

Datsopoulos, MacDonald & Lind, P.C. can take your case to court to get you the money to which you are entitled. When the insurance company will not offer a fair settlement or when it acts in bad faith, we will bring your claim to court to ensure you get just compensation.

The payment does not come out of your own pocket; instead, it is deducted from the check insurance company writes if and when we obtain a recovery for you.
