Personal Injury Law Lawyers In Mission South Dakota

*Mission is a city in Todd County, South Dakota, United States, and the Rosebud Indian Reservation. The population was 904 at the 2000 census. Mission is home of the Sinte Gleska University. It is the largest incorporated community in the county, but is smaller than the unincorporated community of Rosebud, which is the capital of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe. It is named for one of the many missions established by religious groups in the late 1800s to assist the Sicangu Lakota (Rosebud Sioux) and other AmerInd nations. It is the major market center of the county, and is located at the junction of US-83 and US-18 (the Oyate Trail, the home of Todd County School District, Cherry-Todd Rural Electric Cooperative, and various federal/tribal agencies). On episodes of The Price is Right, Bob Barker denoted that Mission was the town in which he spent his childhood while his mother worked as a teacher on the Indian reservation. Mission is also the home of Neal Wanless, who won a South Dakota–record $232.1 million (annuity value; he chose the cash option) in the Powerball drawing of May 27, 2009.

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury includes injuries to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property. If the negligence of another person can be proved, the person who is injured may be entitled to monetary compensation from that person who was negligent. Attorneys often represent clients on a contingency basis, in which the attorneys fee is a percentage of the compensation the plaintiff receives, payable when the case is resolved. Cases involving people who have suffered an injury for which someone else (an individual or business) may be legally liable -- may include injuries caused by car accidents, medical malpractice, dog bites, slip and fall incidents, and emotional distress.
