It borders upon the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan.

No matter your interests, Montana has something for everyone to explore. National parks, historical monuments, resorts, battlefields, and natural and animal preserves.

Glacier National Park is a must-see if visiting Montana, with over seven hundred miles of trails, educational programs, tours, fishing, boating, horseback, and more. Even though only 3% of Yellowstone National Park is actually in Montana, it’s another beautiful park to explore.

There’s also the Lewis and Clark Caverns State park if you can’t get enough of adventuring outdoors. For those who are more laid back, there’s the World Museum of Mining, the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center, the C.M. Russell Museum Complex, the Historical Society Museum, and more.

Unfortunately, while adventuring through the state, some snowbirds will be injured in a car accident in Montana.

Car Accidents In Montana

In Montana, car insurance is not required. However, if you do choose to purchase car insurance, you must have at least the following coverage:

  • $25,000 for injury or death of one person in an accident
  • $50,000 for injury or death of two or more people in an accident
  • $10,000 for property damage in an accident

In Montana, you have three years (3) from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit for injuries sustained in the accident. If you do not file a lawsuit within this time period, you will likely be barred from suing for damages related to the accident.

Montana is a modified join and several liability state.  If a plaintiff is 50% or more at fault for the accident, defendants are only responsible for their percentage of fault.  In situations where the plaintiff is not at fault, joint and several negligence applies to all defendants who acted in concert for the accident.  

We do not wish this upon you, but if you are involved in an accident give us a call.  We are ready, willing and able to help.
