More than most any other state, Montana residents love snowmobiles. Estimates show that potentially as many as 100,000 Montanans may ride snowmobiles each year. With over 4,000 snowmobile trails throughout Montana it’s no suprise to see so many riders hitting the trails each winter. Unfortunately, snowmobiling and other snow recreations, such as skiing and snowboarding, are rather dangerous activities. From collisions to avalanches, winter sports often lead to long-term injuries or even death. If you’ve suffered an injury in a snowmobile accident or another snow sport caused by another person’s negligence, you will almost certainly need a skilled attorney to help with your recovery.

The Advocates Accident Claim Process

Step 1: Investigate the Accident

The first step The Advocates will take is to investigate your accident. Our attorneys do this by requesting a police report about your accident, examining any videos or photographs of the crash scene, and by contacting any relevant witnesses to the accident. Once we have firmly established liability, we will begin the hard work of building your injury claim.

Step 2: Build Your Claim

Building your car accident injury claim is one of the most time-consuming steps in the entire process. Our staff must wait until you are finished receiving treatment for your injuries before we can compile a comprehensive medical record of the injuries and costs associated with your accident.

Step 3: Negotiate a Settlement

Once you are finished treating your injuries and your medical records have been gathered, your attorney will send out a demand package to the at-fault party’s insurance. Afterwards, negotiations with your attorney will begin. If we are unable to negotiate a fair offer, then you will have the option to file a lawsuit.

Step 4: Litigate If Necessary

Time wise, litigation is the longest step in the claim process, possibly extending the life of your claim one or, even, two years. If you do decide to file a lawsuit, be prepared to potentially appear before a judge and jury.
