Motorcycle Accidents Representation That Will Fight for You Every Step of the Way

Rapid City Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Strong Legal Representation for Accident Victims

There are many pros to riding a motorcycle, from saving on gas to getting where you need to go faster. Unfortunately, there are also some cons as well. In an accident between a car and a motorcyclist, the motorcycle rider tends to suffer much more severe injuries since they are significantly more vulnerable. If you or a loved one were injured in a motorcycle accident, you may have suffered life-altering injuries. You may be worried about how you will pay for emergency medical care, rehabilitation, and lost wages. Our Rapid City motorcycle accident attorneys at Whiting Hagg Hagg Dorsey & Hagg, LLP, are here to help.

Do not hesitate to call our firm at (605) 250-3003 to pursue your legal rights.

South Dakota is an At-Fault State for Motorcycle Accidents

While some states operate under a "no-fault" system which requires injured motorcyclists to turn to their own insurance companies for compensation after a crash, South Dakota holds negligent parties responsible under a traditional fault-based system. An attorney from our firm can review the circumstances that led to your crash and identify all parties that may be held legally accountable.

Call us if someone caused your motorcycle accident and you suffered any of the following injuries:

  • Road rash
  • Whiplash
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Concussions / head injuries
  • Cuts / lacerations
  • Amputation

How Long Do You Have to File a Motorcycle Accident Claim?

Like any type of personal injury claim, motorcycle accident injury claims are subject to a strict legal deadline known as a "statute of limitations" that limits the amount of time you have to take legal action. In South Dakota, injured motorcyclists have three years from the date of their accident to file a claim in court against the responsible party. If a motorcyclist was killed in a crash, this same three-year deadline also applies to families who wish to pursue a wrongful death claim in court. Finally, property damage claims stemming from motorcycle accidents must be filed within six years of the collision to be heard in state courts.

Whichever deadline applies, if you attempt to file a claim after the statute of limitations period has passed, your case will almost certainly be dismissed and you will effectively lose your right to pursue compensation. Even if you are confident that your case will be resolved through an insurance settlement, you will want to give yourself and your attorney plenty of time to file a lawsuit if necessary. If you think you may be approaching the filing deadline, it is important to discuss your situation with a knowledgeable South Dakota motorcycle accident attorney.
