Car accidents: Commercial vehicle crash injures 1, kills 1

Commercial vehicles are inherently larger and more difficult to maneuver than other vehicles. As such, drivers must use caution to adjust speed accordingly upon attempting to negotiate a sharp curve. Those who fail to do so may increase the risks that a dangerous incident will take place, and car accidents involving tractor-trailers can have devastating results. A recent crash in Montana left one person with serious injuries and claimed the life of another.

Asset division and your ranch in a divorce

If you are deciding whether to file for a divorce in Montana, the financial implications of the divorce process may be a significant factor in your decision. The process of asset division needs to be completed before a divorce can become finalized, and this often involves selling the family home. If a ranch is part of your marital property, asset division can become even more complex.

Car accidents: Whiplash injuries may take time to develop

While being in a collision can be scary, those who leave the incident feeling relatively unscathed may consider themselves fortunate. However, while a person in Montana might not experience immediate pain or discomfort shortly after the crash, there are some injuries that take time to develop. Whiplash is one of the most common types of injuries suffered during car accidents, and one might not develop symptoms of these injuries for hours, or even days after the collision takes place.

Divorce doesn't have to leave those involved with regrets

Going through the end of a marriage may rarely be an easy and stress-free experience. The outcome of a divorce can affect one's life in various ways, and it could also impact the lives of the kids as well. However, by seeking guidance from others on what they wish they knew before going through a divorce, individuals in Montana may be able to gain a better understanding of how to prepare for the process, as well as life thereafter.

Car accidents: Crash involving tractor-trailer injures 1

One person was injured in a recent collision involving a pickup truck and a tractor-trailer that took place in Montana. Due to the increase in size and weight of many commercial vehicles, other vehicles stand little chance of holding their own should a collision occur. As such, car accidents involving these large vehicles have a higher chance of placing the safety of everyone involved at risk.

Emergency crews respond to several car accidents in icy weather

When winter weather sets in, drivers in Montana and elsewhere may find it is more difficult to safely operate a motor vehicle. However, many individuals may still need to travel during this time, and they may choose to stay as safe as possible by using caution as they navigate the open road. Unfortunately, some drivers might not always use such sound judgment, and if drivers fail to adjust their driving behavior to match road conditions, the results of subsequent car accidents could prove disastrous.

Seeking advice on avoiding mistakes during divorce in Montana

Certain changes in life can be difficult to predict and may thus be challenging to prepare for. Individuals in Montana who are facing divorce may have entered marriage with the intention of staying together forever, and when this doesn't happen, they might be uncertain how best to approach the situation. Unfortunately, not being prepared for divorce proceedings could increase the risks of making certain mistakes, some of which could have devastating consequences.
