Protecting Your Rights Against Uninsured Or Underinsured Drivers

As of March 2024, the minimum coverage in South Dakota for motorists is set at $25,000 for bodily injury per person, $50,000 for bodily injury per accident, and $25,000 for property damage. Yet, even with these requirements, you may find yourself in an accident where the other driver is uninsured or underinsured.

In these cases, our lawyers at Christensen Law Office, PC, are here to ensure that you are not left to bear the financial burden alone. At our Sioux Falls office, we help clients throughout the state recover from injuries where they are not able to expect compensation from the liable party’s insurance, whether they do not have enough coverage or any coverage at all.

Uninsured Versus Underinsured Situations

An uninsured driver is one with no insurance coverage at all, which is against the law in South Dakota. On the other hand, an underinsured driver has insurance, but their policy limits are too low to cover all the damages caused by the accident. In both scenarios, you are faced with potential out-of-pocket expenses, through no fault of your own.
