Defective Products

Many personal injuries are caused by products that are defective or that don't contain proper warnings of their dangers. In personal injury law, these cases are known as product liability cases. If you've been hurt by a defective product, our personal injury attorneys can thoroughly investigate the cause of your accident and identify all of the parties that are potentially liable for your damages.

Premises Liability

If your injury is the result of a property owner being negligent in his or her duty to reasonably safeguard others who rightfully access the premises, let our attorneys seek compensation for you.

Wrongful Death

If you have lost a loved one due to an act of negligence, we are truly sorry. Our personal injury lawyers understand that no amount of money can truly compensate for your family's loss. Nevertheless, we can work with you to hold the negligent party accountable and to recover the financial resources you need to move forward.

Unafraid of Insurance Companies

It's important for personal injury victims to remember that insurance companies are not interested in paying them what they deserve. Insurance companies make money by denying or undervaluing claims, and their initial settlement offers are almost always less than what victims of serious injuries truly deserve.

When your family is seeking compensation after a personal injury, you need a lawyer who is unafraid of large insurance companies. You need the attorneys of Tipp Coburn & Associates in Missoula, MT.

Our attorneys know personal injury law in Montana, and we know how to fight back against insurance companies that try to rip off innocent victims. We'd recommend consulting with us before you even contact your insurance company, but no matter where you are in the insurance process, you can enlist the aid of our personal injury lawyers to greatly increase your chances of success.

Statue of justice holding scales
You are not alone. The lawyers at Tipp Coburn & Associates may be able to represent you.

Your personal injury case may have complications, but our legal team can help. 

What If the Other Driver Didn't Have Insurance?

Truck accidents, car accidents, and motorcycle accidents can be devastating. Unfortunately, victims may also have to deal with another complication: being injured by an uninsured driver.

Though being caught without auto insurance physically with you is a misdemeanor in Montana, our roads still see uninsured drivers.

Thankfully, even if the driver at fault in your car, truck, or motorcycle accident doesn't have insurance, you still can pursue two options.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage

When you signed up for your insurance, your company offered you uninsured motorist coverage, as required by Montana law. It may be able to help you now.

Personal Injury Lawsuit

You may have decided to reject uninsured motorist coverage. If this is the case, then you can likely pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver.

If I'm Partially at Fault for My Road Accident Can I Still Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Motorcycle, car, and truck accidents can be complex.

Montana law recognizes that, which is why we have a specific legal rule in place.

Essentially, if you have 50% of the responsibility or less in a car accident, then you may be able to receive damages. So, if you are somewhat at fault for the case, you may still be able to receive compensation.

Depending on your degree of fault, though, the damages may be reduced in value.

Still a little confused? Our attorneys can help you navigate the law and pursue fair compensation.

My family and I are forever indebted to Ms. Lockwood...She was consistently straightforward, held no punches, providing us with information and her legal advice in a respectful manner.  Her candor and sincerity were both immediately evident, and did not waiver...In short, the best $ our family has ever spent. We truly cannot thank Ms. Lockwood and her staff enough.

I can not say enough nice things about Brett and everyone else in the office. He actually listened to what I had to say, knew exactly how to help me, and took the time to walk me through my options and what needed to happen next. It's hard to know who you can trust and who's just telling you what you want to hear, but I never had any doubt Brett was giving me his honest opinion. I would never go anywhere else.

Medical Malpractice Can Lead to a Personal Injury Case

We trust doctors to care for us, but sometimes, sadly that trust is broken.

This can result in medical malpractice, a type of personal injury caused by any type of medical professional. Doctors, nurses, administrators, and other medical care providers can be responsible for medical malpractice.

If you or a loved one have experienced any of the following and damage has occurred as a result, you may need a personal injury attorney:

Not all personal injury cases are directly caused by another person. Instead, they may be caused by products.
