I live in Minnesota and was injured in a car accident near Sioux Falls, South Dakota. What should I do?

If you have been injured in a car accident in South Dakota, the claims process could be somewhat complicated.

To help you avoid these difficulties, take action with these three steps:

  • Take care of yourself. If you have been injured, take care of yourself right away. Don't wait around to see if things will just "get better." Even if you believe your injuries are minor, visiting a doctor ensures that you get the medical care you need. 
  • Visit with your insurance company. Your car insurance most likely protects you no matter where you are in the United States. However, it's important that you understand your coverage and report any accidents. 
  • Contact an experienced attorney in South Dakota. An attorney with experience in helping South Dakota accident victims can walk you through each step of the process by gathering the information you may need in the future and being available to answer your questions in language you understand.
