Flathead Reservation And Flathead Lake – Polson Montana Lawyer
Duckworth Law Office was originally located in Ronan, Montana and moved in 2020 to Polson, Montana. Both Polson and Ronan are on the Flathead Reservation, home of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT). The CSKT has a long a rich history in the area and throughout Western Montana and the Flathead Reservation was established by the Hellgate Treaty of 1855.
The Flathead Reservation is home to Flathead Lake, where locals and tourists flock to the beautiful lake in the summer seasons. Flathead Lake is the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River and a rare gem of crystal clear water and open spaces. Our population in Polson explodes in the summertime months as a result of Flathead lake. Many people come here from in state and out of state. Some have second homes on Flathead Lake, and others come just to visit and enjoy our beautiful summertime weather and lake activities.
Polson Montana Lawyer for Car Accidents
Polson, Montana is located on Highway 93, a beautiful but dangerous Montana Highway. Highway 93 has the the unfortunate distinction of being one of the most dangerous highways in Montana. Highway 93 is the most dangerous for animal-vehicle collisions, but is also a dangerous highway for vehicle to vehicle collisions. At Duckworth Law we focus on preventable accidents, meaning auto accidents caused by the negligence of a driver.
We are not proud of the fact that Highway 93 cases keep us busy. On the contrary, our hope at Duckworth Law is that our work makes a difference. We aggressively pursue negligent drivers in hopes that we can effect change, by holding responsible drivers accountable. If we can make the difference for one drunk driver, distracted driver, or texting driver, then that is one life potentially saved. Highway 93 will likely continue to be a dangerous highway just due to the geography and weather conditions, but hopefully we can make it at least a little safer for all Lake County residents and families.
