Personal Injury Lawyer Missoula, MT
Wondering if you need a personal injury lawyer in Missoula? Frustrated by insurance companies giving you the runaround? Feeling pressured to settle, but suspect the settlement is unfair?
You’re in the right place.
Read on to learn what a personal injury lawyer does, why you should call one, and how we can help. With decades of experience with these claims, we can help you get fair compensation for your injuries.
What Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Do?
A personal injury lawyer helps people who have been seriously injured when someone else is at fault. Did someone hit you while texting and driving? Are you hurt and the insurance company is giving you the run around? Did they fail to shovel the snow and ice from their sidewalk, and you got hurt? Did they fail to keep their dog on their property, and it bit your child? We help you and your family get the justice you deserve and navigate the related insurance issues.
Personal injury cases often involve an automobile collision where one party is at fault and insurance issues begin to mount and frustrate innocent victims. That is what we are here for and it is our business to know how to navigate these claims. Significant physical and emotional injuries can not only cause you physical pain, but can keep you out of work, damage relationships, affect child care and supervision and generally cause a drastic change in your life. Several complicated situations can exist that will require the expertise of an attorney if you want to get what you deserve and maximize the value of your claim recovery.

What We Do
A car accident attorney helps you get compensation for those losses from the responsible party. Navigating these complexities and ensuring you get the full value of your claim can only be accomplished with an experienced lawyer on your side. We know how to navigate complicated insurance issues. For example, do you know what insurance company should pay your medical bills first, and why? The answer is: your own personal car insurance company’s use of med pay is first. This is first because after your insurance pays the bills, the responsible party’s insurance will also pay the same bill, and you get to keep that money because the provider was already paid. This gets complicated by health insurance and can be very problematic if you don’t know what you are doing. If you don’t know the answer to this, you could be literally missing out on tens of thousands of dollars that are owed to you just because of experience in the industry. Many complex insurance issues exist in Montana, so don’t try to handle these issues yourself, get some help. In the end, with the assistance of an experienced attorney, a client will typically make a larger monetary recovery – even after paying the lawyer, than without a lawyer at all.
As personal injury attorneys, our process involves getting ahold of relevant medical records, police reports, and witness statements as we build your case. We find experts to testify, if necessary, and look into similar cases in the past. We deeply research and investigate your case. We also advise you on whether to take a settlement or go to court. If we go to court, we’ll help you prepare and figure out exactly what to say.
Why You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer
Insurance companies are in the business of making money – not giving it to injured people. Don’t let their expensive commercials fool you, you are not in good hands with any of these corporations. The vast majority of clients that we see have grown so frustrated at an insurance company, they feel hiring an attorney is the only way to stop the insurance companies from being unfair.
The sooner an experienced attorney gets on board to help you, the sooner you can stop worrying about the insurance company and know all the right choices are being made on your behalf. Once a personal injury attorney represents you, the insurance company cannot contact you directly and must only contact your attorney. That way you’re protected from the insurance company using your statements against you.
Experience with insurance companies counts. Having a relationship with insurance adjusters and being able to identify their tricks and tactics is a very valuable asset to have on your side. The attorneys at the Judnich Law Office have this experience and are not afraid to sue the other side if you are not treated fairly or offered fair compensation. Our track record and willingness to file lawsuits to obtain favorable outcomes is the reason our clients trust us. Review our testimonials from prior clients we have helped to see for yourself.
What a Personal Injury Lawyer Can’t Do
Right after an accident, people often ask us how much their case is worth. The reality is that a competent personal injury lawyer cannot answer that question yet. Only after you’ve finished medical treatment and recovered to your pre-crash health can we evaluate the medical information and your claim’s ultimate monetary value. If you need extensive medical care and physical therapy, and you were very active before the accident, your case will be worth more than if the accident didn’t significantly affect your activity level and you only had minor injuries.
Honest personal injury lawyers will tell you each case is different. When determining adequate compensation for an injured party, we consider lots of variables, such as the following:
- How serious your injuries were
- How long treatment was
- How your injuries responded to treatment
- Level of pain of your injuries and treatment
- Inability to do activities pain free and range of motion
- Inconvenience to your life
- Pain management needs
- Whether you had prior injuries
- How much medical care you needed
- Comparable jury verdicts
Those are only a few factors we take into account. Don’t trust a personal injury lawyer who gives you a monetary figure for your case before you’ve finished medical treatment.
How We Can Help You
At the Judnich Law Office, our personal injury attorneys know far more about injury insurance law than the average Missoula resident. In most cases, our clients have inadvertently made an error in how to process their claim. We can ensure you get the correct insurance company paying your bills in the right order.
Plus, injured people often don’t realize areas of insurance money are available to them. This knowledge can frequently gain clients tens of thousands of dollars that they would have completely missed out on without an attorney. Unlike insurance companies, our personal injury lawyers are in the business of getting you fair compensation.
We’re sorry you got hurt. Now let’s make it right.

Clients Trust Judnich Law
“I was involved in an auto accident in 2011, I was referred to Marty with Judnich Law Offices.
After scheduling my first appointment and meeting with Marty, I left his office feeling reassured I had made the right choice in selecting an attorney.
I greatly appreciated the assistance I received from Marty, Vinnie, & Christy in the horrible situation I found myself in. Every time I met with Marty or Vinnie I was greeted with professionalism and hospitality from Christy and felt very welcomed.
Marty and Vinnie represented me in a manner that was extraordinary, as well very professional. They helped me to clearly understand what was going on in my situation and explained everything to me in a manner that I clearly understood. They expressed what the possible outcomes were and in full detail explained how we would approach each one.
I would recommend the Judnich Law Office any of my family or friends. I not only walked away from my experience feeling satisfied with the outcome and how I was treated but also feeling like I just made new friends for life in Christy, Marty and Vinnie.
Thank you Judnich Law Offices for all that you’ve done for me.”
