Fatal Car Accidents

Losing a loved one can be a traumatic experience under any circumstances. But when a loved one dies in a car accident due to someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior, the flood of emotions can be overwhelming, including anger, sadness and frustration.

Knowing what to do in such circumstances in South Dakota can be overwhelming. Even knowing what your legal options are as a surviving family member might not be clear. That’s why it’s important to talk to a car accident lawyer who understands how the legal system works here and knows what needs to be done to make things rights.

Our experienced attorneys at Northern Plains Justice, LLP in Sioux Falls can help you every step of the way. We know how the legal system works in South Dakota when it comes to fatal car accidents. That’s because we have worked with many families dealing with serious auto accidents throughout the state.

Common causes of fatal car crashes

Like all motor vehicle accidents, fatal car accidents happen for many different reasons. Whether it’s a highway car accident, head-on collision or multi-vehicle crash, some of the most common causes include:

  • Speeding drivers
  • Distracted drivers (especially texting drivers)
  • Reckless driving (including illegally passing another car)
  • Asleep at the wheel drivers
  • Drunk drivers

Whatever the cause of your loved one’s accident, no matter how straightforward or complicated it might seem, it’s important to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible to learn more about all the legal options available to you.

We’re here for you

You might think you don’t need a lawyer if another driver clearly caused your loved one’s accident. The police are surely investigating the crash and you’ve probably already been contacted by insurance companies associated with the accident.

But it’s important to remember that police officers are only concerned with determining the cause of the crash, not whether your family is fairly compensated. And insurance companies often only care about one thing – paying accident victims and their families as little money as possible or nothing at all.

We know how to deal with insurance companies and hold them accountable. And if they refuse to negotiate with us, we’re prepared to file a lawsuit against them and take them to court. We put your family’s needs first at Northern Plains Justice. Find out how we can help you. Contact us today and schedule your free consultation. We’re here for you when you need us most.
