Experienced South Dakota Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

At the Christensen Law Offices, we know that motorcycle accidents cause emotional suffering as well as physical pain and financial loss. We have represented resident and non-resident victims of personal injury throughout Western South Dakota and the Black Hills for over 30 years. We also work with residents and nonresidents who have been hurt while attending the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally or vacationing in Western South Dakota.

Because the most common types of motorcycle accidents involve a collision with a car or truck, the injuries suffered are often catastrophic. When the driver of an automobile fails to see a motorcycle, the ensuing crash can cause traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, paralysis and other serious injuries.

In 30 years of practice, we have handled all types of personal injury. We know how to establish liability and prove damages for even the most serious types of accidents.

If you have suffered serious injury in a motorcycle accident, you need an attorney who understands the culture of biking and the people who ride. At our offices, we know and understand bikers, and we work hard to protect their rights.

We have represented many nonresidents who have been injured while attending the Sturgis Cycle Rally. We also handle defense of criminal charges, including DUI/DWI, theft and assault, for out-of-state visitors attending the cycle rally or vacationing at one of the local casinos.
