Frequently Asked Questions
Not every accident requires an attorney. However, if the accident resulted in injuries or significant property damage, it is a good idea to contact a lawyer. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you navigate the claims process, which can be lengthy and complex. Your attorney will build your case, keep track of your medical records, negotiate with insurance companies, and represent you in court if necessary. Studies have shown that accident victims who hire a personal injury lawyer can receive settlements up to 3.5 times larger than if they settled on their own.
The best way to know if you have a case is to speak with an attorney. The Advocates offer free consultations—you can speak with a qualified legal team to understand what your case is worth without paying a dime. Once you have decided to hire an Advocate, we will investigate your accident to firmly establish liability.
Your initial consultation with us is always 100% free. There are never any upfront costs or hidden fees when you hire The Advocates.
Our attorneys work on a contingency basis, which means that our attorney fees are calculated as a percentage of your settlement. You will not pay us unless we win your case, and you receive a settlement.
Every personal injury case is different. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to accident claims. The length of the claims process will depend on the severity of your injuries, the willingness of the other party to settle, the court’s caseload, and more.
In general, personal injury cases can take anywhere from several months to a few years. It’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible to get your case started. Each state has a statute of limitations for personal injury cases, after which you will lose your right of action.
When you hire The Advocates, we will begin investigating your accident immediately while you finish medical treatment. Once all evidence and medical records have been compiled, your attorney will send a demand letter to the other party’s insurance company. At this point, negotiations will begin.
In many cases, a settlement can be reached during negotiations. If the other party refuses to make a fair offer, you may choose to file a suit. In the litigation phase, your attorney will represent you in court in front of a judge, jury, and/or arbitrator.
Your Team of Advocates
The Advocates are not just personal injury attorneys. When The Montana Advocates take your case, you get an entire team that will see your claim through to the very end. Your team will be there for you every step of the way to answer your questions, explain the claims process, contact medical and insurance providers, and make sure you obtain the settlement you deserve.

Caity Jones | Salt Lake City, UT
When I first got in my accident my family had no idea where to turn to. Doug at the Advocates is a very easy going person and was willing to deal with the insurance company so I didn't have to. Looking for an attorney can be difficult, but the advocates are ready and willing to help you fight to get what you deserve. Without the advocates, I wouldn't have been able to be treated by a chiropractor for my injuries. After a year of going against one of the worst insurance companies to deal with he was able to get a settlement. Not only did he get a settlement from the at fault party, but is now fighting my insurance company due to her underinsured policy. If you're looking for an insurance attorney, your best bet is the advocates. If they believe you have a case, they are willing to fight for you.
Doug and his team are so amazing. My daughter was in a major car accident that nearly took her life and left us with alot of really high bills. They took over the headache of dealing with auto and health insurance companies and all the bills that just kept coming in. They worked hard for us for 2 years and in the end my daughter came away with a settlement which was completely unexpected. So glad we had "Advocates" on our side.
Couldn’t be happier with my experience start to finish with The Advocates. I partially chose them for the band which strongly resonated with me in my situation where I felt I did not have an advocate and was overwhelmed by all the injuries sustained with no recourse. Contacting The Advocates gave me hope. From the first consultation to the checking in to see how I was recovering, they were kind and professional. Although it was a long process, the results speak for themselves. Thank you Kathryn for wrapping up everything and being a great first-time Lawyer experience for me. Cassidy, thank you for always being there for me and assisting throughout the waiting!

When Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney in Montana?
It’s true that not every accident requires an attorney. However, if you experienced serious injuries and property damage, a Montana personal injury lawyer can help.
After an accident, you may be able to seek compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses (in the case of wrongful death)
However, if you attempt to settle your case on your own, you may be leaving money on the table. Many insurance companies actively fight to avoid offering you a fair settlement.
The Advocates have more than 30 years of experience negotiating with insurance providers. We can tell you what your personal injury case is worth, and fight to make these multi-million dollar corporations pay you fairly.
