Slammed by a Semi? Settlement Secrets You Need to Know

May 18th, 2017|Car Accidents|

If you have been involved in an accident with a semi-truck, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages.

A collision with an 18-wheeler is unlike other accidents. The trucking industry is heavily regulated, with the intent to keep drivers safe on U.S. roads. When those safety standards are not met, the potential for vehicle damage and loss of human life is much greater. For these reasons, you should speak with a semi-truck accident attorney in South Dakota if one of these large transport vehicles has resulted in harm to you or a loved one on South Dakota roads.

What Is a Subrogation Claim? Why Should You Care?

April 12th, 2017|Car Accidents|

Unless you have been involved in an accident where your health or auto insurer was reimbursed for payments it made, you probably do not know what a subrogation claim is—but here is why you should.

The term “subrogation” literally means that one person stands in the place of another with regard to a debt. When a person or entity pays a debt that ultimately is the responsibility of someone else, the one who paid may be entitled to reimbursement from the one who owed the debt in the first place. Entitlement to that reimbursement, especially in the case of insurance situations, is called “the right of subrogation.”
