When an individual suffers a burn injury in South Dakota, the opportunity to recover damages for losses sustained is dependent upon the circumstances of the injury. South Dakota law, consistent with all other jurisdictions, permits a person who has suffered physical injuries due to the negligent act(s) or omission(s) or another individual or entity to attempt to secure compensation from the individual or entity for the injury and any related damages.
South Dakota has multiple courts with jurisdiction over civil claims. Selecting which court to file a burn injury claim will depend upon the particular details of your case as well as the amount of damages you are seeking. An experienced personal injury lawyer can advise you of the appropriate venue in which to file.
