Our Montana Legal Team Can Help You Decide If You Need a Lawyer After a Car Accident—and Provide Effective Representation When You Do

You’ve been involved in a serious accident and suffered painful injuries. Now what? Many people are hesitant to contact a lawyer—worried they’ll fall victim to a dishonest attorney. It’s a fair concern. Many accident cases can be handled on your own, and too many attorneys provide expensive, unnecessary services.

At Foust Law Office, our legal team is here to protect accident victims who are truly vulnerable—those who have suffered serious injuries due to someone else’s carelessness and who are being pressured by an insurance company to accept a quick settlement offer. In some cases, a settlement is the best choice, but when it’s not, Lucas Foust can provide legal representation to ensure that no one takes advantage of you.

When You Need a Lawyer for Your Montana Car Accident Claim

It can be difficult to know whether an attorney can make a real difference in the outcome of your case. That’s why we are here. Contact us and we’ll help you understand your legal options. If we can help, we will! We’ll investigate your case, negotiate with the insurance company, and go to trial when necessary. If we don’t think your case would benefit from our representation, we’ll give you our honest opinion about how best to move forward on your own.

While every case is unique and the specific facts of your accident will determine what’s best, you should seek legal advice if:

  • You suffered serious injuries
  • Your medical bills exceed $15,000
  • You will require future medical treatment for your injuries

We understand why accident victims may hesitate to seek legal advice. Lawyers don’t exactly have the most trustworthy of reputations, but we are committed to being different. Even if you aren’t sure what to do or what you need, contact our Bozeman office today to talk to Lucas and find the information you need to make the best decision about your case.

Protecting You From Insurance Companies and Healthcare Providers Who Don’t Play Fair

As a hardworking, honest Montanan, you probably expect that everyone plays by the same rules. However, when it comes to insurance companies and medical providers, that’s just not true. Insurance companies will employ any number of tactics to protect their own bottom lines. This includes:

  • Pushing for a quick settlement.  Insurance companies will try to close your case as quickly as possible, even before the full extent of your injuries are known and before anyone has a chance to review your situation.
  • Offering a low settlement. While they may deny it, insurance companies routinely offer settlements that are much lower than what an injury victim deserves. A fair recovery can help injury victims obtain the medical care they need both now and in the future, as well as provide financial security when injuries prevent them from working.

Before you speak with an insurance representative or sign any document, let Lucas Foust provide you with free information about your rights. Get informed and make the best decision possible about how to move forward with your claim—with or without the help of an attorney.
