Deadwood Personal Injury Attorneys
Has Another Person Caused You Injury in Deadwood?
In the 1800s, Deadwood was known for its lawlessness. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. But if you suffer a personal injury due to another person’s failure to take reasonable care, you can demand justice and receive compensation for your losses.
Steven Titus & Associates, P.C. is experienced in a wide range of Deadwood personal injury cases. We pursue the maximum compensation for our clients, whether through a trial or by reaching a settlement. Don’t be tempted to sign an agreement for compensation with an insurance company and waive your legal rights before you speak to our attorneys.

How Do Deadwood Personal Injury Claims Work?
To receive compensation for an injury, another person needs to be at fault. That is most commonly through negligence where a person fails to take reasonable care to prevent an incident from occurring.
You can receive compensation for economic loss (medical expenses, loss of wages) and non-economic loss (pain or trauma). While not all cases go to trial, analyzing how much you could receive at trial is necessary to ensure you get a fair sum if a settlement agreement is reached.
While it is possible to sort out these claims directly with the at-fault party’s insurance company, they will likely give you less compensation than you are entitled to.
What If I Contributed to the Injury/Accident?
South Dakota uses a modified version of the “comparative negligence” rule that measures the amount each party contributed to the accident. If your negligence (failure to take reasonable care) was more than “slight,” you cannot receive compensation. If your contribution to the accident was only “slight,” your compensation is reduced by the percentage you are determined to have contributed to the incident.
What Types of Incidents Can I Take Legal Action For?

My Injury Happened a While Ago. Can I Still Get Compensation?
