We Help Injured Parties Maximize Their Recovery
Serious injuries can happen in seconds and disrupt lives for years. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you should not have to suffer financially. At Christensen Law Office, PC, in Sioux Falls, we advocate aggressively for injured parties to help them stand up to insurance companies and recover the amount they deserve.
Attorney Renee Christensen has devoted her career – more than 25 years – to helping injured individuals in Sioux Falls, surrounding communities and throughout South Dakota. She understands that being injured and unable to work while facing substantial medical bills and the costs of everyday life can be stressful.
Renee also knows that insurance companies cannot be trusted to be strong advocates for injured parties. They are for-profit businesses that are most concerned about their own bottom line, which leads them to frequently undervalue injury claims or deny a valid claim entirely. That is why it is always a good idea for injured parties to enlist the help of a knowledgeable attorney who will advocate aggressively on their behalf.
We Represent Clients In A Wide Range Of Cases
Attorney Christensen represents clients in all types of injury cases, including:
- Premises liability accidents, such as dog bites or harm due to insufficient security
- Car and truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
- Farm accidents
- Dangerous and defective products
- Wrongful death
What You Can Recover
Under South Dakota law, damages in personal injury cases are divided into two categories – economic and noneconomic. Economic damages that can be recovered include current and future medical costs, lost wages, property loss and the cost of household services that you are unable to perform while injured.
Noneconomic damages refer to nonmonetary harm for which you are able to recover damages. This includes physical and emotional pain, loss of companionship, emotional distress and disfigurement. Determining both economic and noneconomic damages is a complex process. This is when having an experienced injury lawyer in your corner is critical.
Our aim is always to recover more for you than you would recover without legal representation, even after our fee is paid. It is important to note that we only get paid if we help you obtain a recovery, either through negotiation or a trial verdict.
Speaking of trials, while most personal injury cases are resolved without the need to litigate, having a trial-tested attorney like Renee Christensen in your corner allows for an aggressive approach to negotiating. She prepares every case as if it will go to trial, and insurance company representatives understand that she will not settle for less than her clients deserve.
