Montana law maintains certain obligations for property owners and businesses to protect guests from unsafe conditions on their premises. If a business or individual fails to exercise their legally required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. At Moriarity & Badaruddin, PLLC, our attorneys employ a practical, caring approach to help our clients seek full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. We represent individuals in the Missoula area and across Montana in premises liability cases where the negligence of property owners caused them to be injured.
Being injured on the property of another person or business can be a scary and stressful experience.

For example, evidence must be shown that you were legally on the property and that a dangerous condition on the premises caused your injury. In addition, generally at least one of the following must be true:
Depending on state law, a property owner or manager may owe a different standard of care to different classes of visitors, such as business visitors or social guests. The attorneys at Moriarity & Badaruddin, PLLC will help you understand your chances of recovery based on the specific facts of your case.
Our goal is to reduce your emotional burden by developing a solid and reliable legal argument on your behalf. We will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your incident and may visit the premises where the accident occurred. There, we may gather crucial evidence, photograph the scene and interview witnesses. We may also consult with knowledgeable and respected expert witnesses, such as physicians and chiropractors. With their assistance, we can pursue the best settlement available. If your case goes to court, these witnesses are available to deliver clear, professional testimony so the jurors can understand the cause of the accident and the extent of your injuries.
By immediately consulting an attorney after your accident, you can help ensure the collection of valuable evidence. With significant delay, you could forfeit your right to file a claim by missing the deadline set by Montana law.
If you were injured on someone’s poorly maintained property, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain. Call the Missoula office of Moriarity & Badaruddin, PLLC at 406-203-0569 or contact us online to schedule your consultation.
