Rapid City personal injury lawyer

If you were injured because of another person's negligence, you have legal options. Someone else's carelessness can cost you a fortune in lost wages, suffering, medical bills, repairs, long-term injuries, and worse. As a victim of personal injury, you must quickly protect your claim. 

Whether you have been injured in a traffic accident by a negligent driver, by a defective consumer product, or in some other scenario, you have the right to be compensated for your losses and damages under South Dakota personal injury law.

Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Personal injury cases can occur in various ways but all are based on the underlying cause of negligence or wrongdoing. They involve someone who owed you a reasonable duty of care that was violated leading to your injuries. 

An example of this is a distracted or reckless driver whose actions behind the wheel result in a traffic accident in which you are injured. 

Our Rapid City personal injury attorney handles various personal injury cases, based on the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective pharmaceuticals
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Defective and unsafe consumer products
  • Other negligent property owners  (premises liability)
  • Dog bites/attacks
  • Industrial/workplace accidents in which third parties caused/contributed to your injuries

Have you suffered a personal injury in Rapid City? Contact Zephier & LaFleur for a free consultation about your case with a Rapid City personal injury attorney at (605) 349-1993 to get started. We fight for the compensation you deserve.


Compensation in Personal Injury Cases

Compensation for your injuries in these cases can include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Property damage, such as to your vehicle
  • Lost wages/income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Damages related to permanent disability and disfigurement
  • Emotional trauma

Should I Settle with an Insurance Company After a Personal Injury?

Fighting for the compensation you deserve can be frustrating and difficult when dealing with large insurance companies. While their representatives may appear to be accommodating, they are trained to seek the best interests of their employers by paying out as little as possible.

You may be pressured into accepting quick settlement offers that undervalue what your claim is worth. Acceptance of such offers results in signing away your rights to further compensation should your injuries later require additional financial outlay.

Get started today by contacting us online or call our Rapid City personal injury lawyer at (605) 349-1993. We're here to advocate for you.
