Accomplished Sioux Falls Personal Injury Lawyer Advocates for Clients’ Needs

Dedicated attorney seeks maximum damage awards for victims of motor vehicle accidents and other incidents in South Dakota

When you are suffering the effects of a personal injury, your focus should be on getting well and getting your life back in order. But that can seem impossible if you’re worried about how to pay bills, and you face constant interruptions from insurance companies asking questions and lawyers demanding statements. That’s why it’s essential to have an experienced legal advocate on your side. At Flynn Law Firm, I bring more than three decades of experience to bear in representing accident victims in Sioux Falls and the surrounding areas. When someone else’s actions have led to your injury, I will press for damages that fully account for the harm you’ve suffered. Let me deal with the insurance companies and legal questions so that you can move forward with your life.

Skillful legal representative fights for clients’ rights in auto accident cases

If you have been injured in a car accident in South Dakota, there are certain key facts to keep in mind when pursuing a personal injury claim:

  • Statute of limitations — The state’s deadline for filing a claim for a personal injury is three years from the date of the accident. After that time, your claim will not be allowed to proceed. Because it is easier to collect and preserve evidence early, it is wise to secure legal representation as quickly as possible after your car accident.
  • Slight/gross comparative negligence — South Dakota follows a unique comparative negligence rule when determining liability in vehicle accidents by using a metric based on “slight/gross” levels of fault. If two drivers are both partially to blame for an accident, the injured driver may still recover damages from the other driver (minus the plaintiff’s percentage of the fault) if the fault of the driver seeking damages is “slight” compared to the other driver’s fault. But if your liability exceeds 30 percent, a threshold determined by the South Dakota Supreme Court as constituting a “gross” level of fault, you may not be able to pursue damages at all.

That’s why it’s essential to have a knowledgeable South Dakota personal injury attorney representing you. I will work to uncover valuable evidence and present that evidence in the best possible light to facilitate the maximum damage award to cover medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Seasoned litigator works to recover maximum damage award in truck accident cases

Special laws apply to trucks because the extra weight and stopping distance required by them pose a serious hazard to occupants of much smaller vehicles. But truck owners, truck drivers, trucking companies and maintenance firms do not always follow these rules, and that failure can lead to devastating consequences. If you have been injured in a trucking accident, I know how to conduct a thorough investigation and hold all liable parties responsible to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Experienced advocate represents victims of slip and fall accidents

Every day, people in the Sioux City area are injured by slipping and falling in stores, apartments, office buildings and other premises due to hazardous conditions. When those conditions are caused by the negligence of the property owner or person responsible for maintaining the property, that party may be held liable for your injuries.

Damages which I can help you recover in premises liability and other personal injury cases include money to cover the cost of past and future medical bills, amounts for lost wages and diminished future earning capacity, and compensation for intangible harm such as pain and suffering and emotional distress.
