Our Advantage

What Makes Us Different?


1

Over Four Decades of Trial Experience

We have over four decades of experience resolving disputes, whether through negotiated settlements or favorable trial verdicts. While the vast majority of that time has been spent representing claimants, we also have over 15 years of experience as defense litigators, giving us unique insight into the strategy and tactics of our opponents.  Our record of success and our extensive resources allow us to handle all facets of complex personal injury cases and business litigation.

2

In a Crowded Field, Our Success and Experience Makes Us Stand Out

There are many so-called trial lawyers, but your claim needs someone with the experience to maximize its value. Someone who cares, and someone who has proven themselves in court. The ability to react and respond to unexpected developments is part of what makes an effective trial lawyer. Our extensive trial background gives us the tools necessary to act decisively when new challenges and opportunities present themselves during a case.

3

Client-Oriented Service

Client-oriented legal service that is compassionate, patient, and comprehensive is the foundation of our firm.  Unlike many of our competitors, we view our  client’s problems as our own, and consider the client to be our partner. This deeply client-oriented perspective is the bedrock philosophy of our law firm. It’s what drives us to secure impressive results.

4

Aggressive Approach

Many attorneys describe themselves as “trial lawyers” despite never having taken a case to trial. This lack of courtroom experience should be a serious concern when you are trying to secure the maximum possible compensation for your losses.  Our willingness and ability to try a case has a direct bearing on our ability to negotiate a fair and just settlement for you. Insurance companies keep track of who actually tries cases versus attorneys who avoid trial, and the amount of their settlement offers reflect this most important factor. At Ragain & Clark, PC, we take an aggressive approach to dispute resolution. From the moment we accept a case we look ahead at the prospect of trial. This proactive approach ensures we are well-prepared so we never have to accept less than maximum value for your claims.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a time limit for bringing a lawsuit?

Yes. Injury claims have a statute of limitations deadline by which they must be filed. Failure to meet the filing deadline could lead to the dismissal of the claim, and therefore an inability to recover damages. In Montana, the general statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years from the date of injury, but some facts and circumstances can either shorten or lengthen this time period.

The insurer wants to settle my claim. Should I engage with them?

Insurance companies are not your friends. Their interests are in direct opposition to yours. Moreover, any statements you make regarding your circumstances or the facts of your case  could be used to undermine your claim. If an insurer is attempting to engage with you, do not engage back. Contact an attorney immediately. Your attorney will serve as the point of contact, ensuring that all communications are guided towards a resolution that is favorable to your interests.

How do contingency fees work?

Most personal injury firms (including our own) work on a contingency fee, which is a percentage fee paid out of the total monies recovered for you. A contingency fee is paid only if you obtain compensation. This fee arrangement incentivizes  the law firm to secure a “win” on your behalf. If you do not obtain any compensation, you will not have to pay your attorneya fee.

Why is it important to work with an attorney early on in the claim process?

The earlier you secure the assistance of an attorney, the better. An attorney will ensure that your claims are properly evaluated and filed within the statute of limitations deadline, and that all necessary procedural requirements are met. Further, the attorney will begin the investigation process and reach out to witnesses in a timely fashion to secure the evidence and  testimony that supports your case.

Testimonials

Jim Ragain helped me when my life savings were stolen from an escrow account due to the negligence of another attorney. He was thoughtful, creative and compassionate. I am very grateful for his persistent efforts on my behalf.

Ragain and Clark found insurance coverage that applied to my case that I did not even know existed.

The brief you filed was readable and easily understood. Polite, yet demanding. I have a new appreciation for the great job you and your team did with our response. Nice work! Please share my appreciation with all who helped.

You just may have changed our opinion of attorneys! Thank you for helping us put our lives back together.
