Many Montana personal injury lawyers claim to be trial attorneys, that is, lawyers who willingly take cases to trial when insurance companies make low offers to settle cases. If these insurance companies know that your law firm has taken many injury cases to trial and received very significant and substantial verdicts, they are much more inclined to pay the value of the injured or deceased client’s claims. Our law firm has proven time and again that we are more than willing to take Montana personal injury and wrongful death cases to trial, with the results being very favorable for our clients. In making your decision as to the type of law firm you want to hire for your catastrophic personal injury case, it is strongly suggested that you review the trial results obtained by the Montana personal injury lawyer you intend to hire.

Areas of Litigation

The verdicts we have obtained for the clients we have represented in Montana fully support our expertise in a vast number of areas of litigation, including:

Our firm operates on a contingent fee basis, meaning there is no fee unless you receive compensation.

Among the nation’s top railroad attorneys, Blewett has bested Amtrak, Union Pacific, Montana Rail Link and Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
