What should I do if I get in a motorcycle accident in South Dakota?
Being involved in a South Dakota motorcycle accident can be overwhelming and stressful. The first step is to check for injuries and request the necessary medical attention. You should also call the police and wait for them at the scene. Law enforcement will help you write an official accident report and exchange driver information. If you can, collect photographic evidence of the point of contact, road signs, road conditions, and other relevant factors.
What is the average settlement for a motorcycle accident in South Dakota?
Settlement amounts vary greatly from case to case, and much of the information is kept private. This means we unfortunately aren't able to provide a specific dollar amount. But when you work with Mighty's network, your specific case is evaluated based on factors such as medical expenses, severity of injuries, pain and suffering, and more.
While it can be frustrating not to have a ballpark figure, keep in mind that each motorcycle accident case is unique. You'll maximize your recovery the most by working with a personal injury lawyer from Mighty's network focused on securing you a fair offer.
Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in South Dakota necessary?
Hiring a South Dakota motorcycle accident lawyer is an entirely personal decision, but professional legal representation can help clarify an opaque, difficult process. You'll typically experience less stress, build a stronger case, and receive a higher settlement with legal help on your side.
How much does a South Dakota motorcycle accident attorney cost through Mighty Law's referral network?
Mighty Law works on a contingency basis, so you'll only pay if you win. For cases that settle directly, our pre-suit fee is 33% of the gross settlement amount. Cases involving a lawsuit have a post-suit fee of 40%.
If you work with a lawyer from our Mighty Law network, we'll also give you 10% back on total fees at the close of your case.
What does the process of working with a motorcycle accident lawyer from Mighty's network look like?
We're so glad you found us. We start the process with an initial screening where a Mighty representative listens to you—your story, your needs, and your concerns. If we can help, you'll then work with a case manager to gather documents and evidence. You'll also follow a personalized medical treatment plan during this time.
Once the medical bills are in, someone from our expert attorney network assembles your case and begins negotiations with the insurance company. Most cases settle, but if your rep can't reach a fair agreement, we may also help you file a lawsuit.
How long will it take to investigate a motorcycle accident claim in South Dakota?
The average personal injury claim takes 1.5 years to settle, but your specific timeline will depend on the complexity of the accident, the insurance company, and the possibility of a lawsuit, among other factors.
No matter your case, lawyers in our network work promptly. You'll receive client-centered legal help from day one. Under our 60-day no-strings-attached policy, if we haven't filed your lawsuit or demand letter in that time, you walk away without owing us anything.
What happens once my South Dakota motorcycle accident case is settled?
Once your case is settled, any outstanding fees—legal expenses, medical bills, and financial loans—are taken out of your gross settlement. You keep the rest for recovery. Even after the close of your case, we're always here to discuss options, provide resources, and sit down for a friendly chat.
