North Dakota Car Accident Attorneys
Motor vehicle accidents occur every day in North Dakota. There are many traditional factors such as North Dakota’s often unpredictable weather that play a factor into how many accidents occur during a given time. During the winter, snow storms create hazardous driving conditions that can cause car accidents. Spring brings with it not only April showers, but slick roads that can be bothersome for drivers. Summer and fall have their own effects on driver safety as well.
It’s true that over the years safety improvements to both roads and vehicles have reduced the number of serious injuries compared with a few generations ago. However, new distractions such as texting and driving, the use of electronic devices while behind the wheel and other negligent acts still cause serious, injury-producing motor vehicle accidents on a regular basis.
The car accident lawyers at Sand Law are experienced in fighting against insurance adjusters and defense attorneys to secure the compensation you deserve.
What Are My Rights If I Have Been Involved In An Accident?
If you have been injured in a car accident you have the right to seek compensation for your losses and injuries. In the law, we call these damages. Under North Dakota law, if you have been involved in a car accident and sustained damages – you can recover money compensation for pain and suffering, emotional harm, disfigurement, and humiliation. You can also recover damages for medical expenses, lost income, and property damage.
The best way to go about enforcing these rights is to hire a car accident lawyer that is familiar with the local court system. There are many ins and outs of the legal system that requires the expertise of an experienced attorney. At Sand Law, we always advise our potential clients that whether you hire us or another law firm – it is imperative to employ the services of a car accident attorney.

North Dakota Rideshare Accidents – Uber or Lyft Injuries
Ridesharing has completely changed the transportation industry, making it easier and more convenient than ever for computers to find a ride and for individuals to earn money driving. However, one of the main drawbacks that companies like Uber and Lyft now face is that more and more rideshare accidents are occurring and it is unclear who is responsible and how injured victims should be compensated. If you have been involved in a rideshare accident, you should consult a qualified Uber and Lyft accident lawyer to learn your rights and options.
Injury claims involving Uber and Lyft collisions require a special kind of experience and legal skill. At Sand Law, we have obtained large settlements and fair compensation for rideshare injury victims.
You may be able to file an injury claim after a rideshare accident if:
- If you were a passenger in a rideshare and the ridesharing driver was at fault.
- If you were in another vehicle that was hit by a negligent rideshare driver.
- If you were a rideshare driver that was injured in an accident in which someone else was at fault.
- If you were a passenger injured in a rideshare accident and the other driver has little or no insurance.
