No one ever expects to be in an accident, but accidents happen when you least expect them. You might hurt yourself in a slip and fall accident, or you or your child could be injured in an animal attack. There are countless ways you or a loved one can sustain a severe injury without warning.

What Type of Injury Do You Have?
Some of the most serious injuries we regularly deal with include:
Concussions, skull fractures, and permanent brain damage are just some of the injuries people sustain in accidents that happen through no fault of their own. We can help you with whatever type of head injury you or a loved one has suffered. From filling out insurance forms to negotiating with insurance companies, we're prepared to do whatever it takes to help you get full compensation for your losses.
An injury to the neck can significantly impact your life. Depending on the severity of the injury and its location, you or a loved one might experience serious pain and suffering, muscle spasms, and a loss of the ability to move parts of your body temporarily or permanently.
Common neck injuries include neck sprains, broken or fractured neck bones, nerve damage, disk injuries, and fractured vertebrae. Whatever type of neck injury you're dealing with, you can count on us to provide exceptional representation.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Depending on the location of your spinal injury and its severity, you or someone you love might not be able to walk or move normally ever again. Spinal cord injuries are among the most severe injuries we deal with at our law firm. That's why we take such cases so seriously. We realize that many people who sustain a spinal cord injury permanently lose movement in their legs (paraplegia) or arms and legs (quadriplegia). If someone else's actions or inaction caused your injury, we can help you hold that person or company accountable.
There are 33 vertebrae (bones) in the spinal column, each cushioned by an intervertebral disc and surrounded by muscle, ligaments, and tendons. Any of these could be injured in an accident. Vertebrae can fracture, and discs can slip or bulge. Nerves can get pinched. Muscles, ligaments, and tendons can tear or sprain. Back injuries are often painful and can severely limit your mobility. They can also leave you unable to work or function normally. Recovery can take weeks, months, or years. Our personal injury attorneys help you get financial compensation so you can get the treatment you need.
Leg injuries cover a wide range. From broken or fractured bones in the leg or foot to amputation of part or all of a leg, it's a serious matter when you or a loved one sustains a leg injury in an accident. Depending on your job, you might not be able to work for several weeks or months if you can't walk due to your leg injury. During that time, medical bills and other expenses can add up fast. Contact our Sioux Falls law firm right away and find out how we can help move your case forward.
Injuries Requiring Surgery
Many accidents require injury victims to undergo surgery. From back surgery due to slip and fall accidents to facial reconstruction surgery due to a vicious dog attack, these operations can have serious long-term effects. The financial impact of such surgical procedures and the recovery time afterward can often be significant. Make sure you don't have to pay for someone else's careless or reckless behavior. Contact our legal team so we can guide you toward the result you deserve for your injury accident.
Partial or total hearing loss due to an accident demands strong legal action. If you or a loved one has lost the ability to hear in one or both ears, you should not have to worry about how you will be able to pay for hearing aids (which can cost thousands of dollars) or medical treatment associated with your accident. We want to help you hold the person or company that caused your accident responsible for their actions. We have years of experience investigating complicated cases, and we will not rest until justice is served.
If you or a loved one has lost the ability to see due to a serious accident, knowing what to do afterward can be overwhelming. Such cases can often be extremely complicated. That's because the stakes are so high in blindness accidents. We have years of experience investigating complex personal injury claims, and we're prepared to do whatever it takes to move your case forward.
Some accidents are so severe that the victim's arm, leg, or other body part must be amputated. Amputation injuries sometimes are the result of reckless or negligent behavior. Perhaps safety measures were not in place that should have been there. Or perhaps you or a loved one severely injured an arm or leg that had to be amputated due to infection or some other medical complication. Whatever the circumstances, we want to help you effectively address your serious personal injury accident. We're here for you when you need us most.

If you or a loved one has sustained a serious or fatal injury due to someone else's careless or negligent behavior, you must take strong legal action now. With most personal injury cases in South Dakota, you have three years or less to file a lawsuit. That deadline starts the second your accident took place. In Iowa, the statute of limitations is only two years.
