Third Party Claims

Filing A 3rd Party Lawsuit in Montana

When you are seeking compensation from the party at fault of an accident, you may need to think outside the box. At Odegaard Braukmann Law, PLLC, our Montana personal injury lawyers focus on helping plaintiffs to seek compensation from third parties who may be partially responsible for an accident.

For example, if you are involved in an accident while driving a delivery truck, the obvious choice may be to pursue a workers' compensation claim.

What you may not know is that you also have the right to sue an individual who was individually responsible for the crash. For example, you may be able to sue a distracted driver, the city, if dangerous road conditions caused the crash, or you may even be able to sue the manufacturer if there was a defect in your vehicle.

Our Billings Personal Injury Firm Will Do What It Takes to Fight for You

Odegaard Braukmann Law, PLLC is focused on helping you with your case regardless of your situation, and will advise you on your case and help determine if there are any other individuals who were responsible for your accident. Our Montana accident lawyers can also do conduct their own research to determine which third party claims have the most merit, and will then pursue those claims.

For instance, we can help you contact an insurance carrier and notify them that an accident occurred with one of their policy holders. Our firm will then provide additional details about the accident; if the third party insurer agrees that its policyholder caused the accident, then the insurance company may pay for your accident expenses. In some cases, you won't even need to involve your insurer if the other driver carries the proper type of and amount of protection.

Looking for Creative Avenues in Injury Lawsuits

If the party-at-fault does not have enough insurance to cover you accident, then you may want to sue him or her directly in the court system. The lawyers at Odegaard Braukmann Law, PLLC are not afraid to go to trial if necessary to get you the financial compensation you deserve.
