Montana Dangerous Property Lawyers

Pursuing Damages for Accidents on Dangerous Property

The personal injury lawyers of Edwards, Frickle & Culver advise people throughout Montana about their legal rights following injuries suffered on unreasonably dangerous property. Contact us in Billings to learn how we can investigate the case and present your claims.

We don't normally handle the slip-and-fall cases that many people think of when they hear the phrase "premises liability." Instead, our attorneys concentrate on the serious or fatal injuries that can result from improper building maintenance, irresponsible waste disposal, insecure construction sites and other hazards related to property ownership or repair.

Our law firm has advocated effectively for Montanans since 1980, and we've earned Martindale-Hubbell's AV peer review rating* and listing in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. We take a sophisticated approach to the proof of liability and damages in dangerous property cases of all kinds, including:

  • Building collapses
  • Elevator malfunctions
  • Logging site and sawmill injuries
  • Mine and quarry accidents
  • Oil and gas accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • School or playground injuries
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Injuries in warehouses or freight yards
  • Traffic accidents caused by loose pets or livestock
  • Injuries caused by negligent security in apartment buildings, hotels or other facilities

The crucial issue of fact in a lawsuit involving dangerous property conditions usually turns on the relative ability of the victim and the property owner to prevent the accident. In other words, what played a bigger role: the owner's alleged negligence or the victim's alleged carelessness?

Our experience with the development and presentation of evidence on this point can represent an important advantage for our client in a premises liability case.
