These Rapid City lawyers go to bat for you
If you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by the negligence or wrongful action(s) of another, the services of a personal injury lawyer can be critical in helping you to receive a fair and equitable settlement. Without a personal injury lawyer, there’s a better chance that you’re going to get a settlement that comes up short when it comes to covering all of the expenses that result from your physical and emotional injuries.
A personal injury lawyer has knowledge of the insurance claim process, knows the type of evidence needed in a personal injury case and how to go about gathering it. He or she is familiar with the formulas used to calculate the damages in these types of cases — “special damages” which include any medical treatment, loss of wages, property damage, and additional out-of-pocket expenses. These expenses are easier to put a dollar figure on than “general damages.”
General damages include pain and suffering and other mental and emotional effects from your injuries. The bottom line? Personal injury lawyers know how to fight cases on the behalf of you and your family. If you live in the Rapid City area or are a South Dakota resident, you need a personal injury lawyer that is knowledgeable about the personal injury laws in South Dakota.
