Williston Car Accident Lawyers
Recovering Compensation for Injured Car Accident Victims in Williams County and across North Dakota
North Dakota is routinely ranked as one of the United States’ 10 most dangerous states to drive in because of the number of car accidents that occur here. But what is worse, we almost always rank 1 or 2 for the most drunk-driving fatalities. In fact, nearly half of the deaths in North Dakota caused by a car accident were related to alcohol. This means that if we are consistently ranking at the top for car accident deaths, and ranking in the top ten for most dangerous states to drive in, then the non-fatal accidents that occur in our state are surely producing many serious injuries.
These injuries often leave the people of Williston, Williams County, and North Dakota as a whole, with chronic pain and life-changing consequences that can take a serious toll on their health, well-being, and finances.
Working with an experienced Williston car accident attorney can help you get the compensation you need to ensure you and your family are not suffering any more than you have to.
Sand Law, PLLC has assembled a team of knowledgeable North Dakota car accident attorneys who are dedicated to the pursuit of justice by getting our clients the compensation they deserve while being caring and compassionate.
What to do after a North Dakota Car Accident
After you have been involved in a car accident, especially one in which you were injured or think you may have injuries, it is extremely important to take certain steps to protect you and your family in the future.
Make no mistake about it, your insurance company, and the other driver’s insurance company, are definitely not on your side. They are on the side of profits and will do anything they can to delegitimize your claim. In order to protect yourself, one of the first things you can do is begin to document the evidence of your Williston car accident.
Follow These Steps after a Williston Car Accident
- Take photographs and videos of the accident scene, of your car and any damages, photos of any injuries, and photos of anything around you that could help prove your accident claim later. Your attorney can always choose not to use a photo, but they can’t create a photo that was never taken. And document all of the details you can as soon as you can, such as eyewitness accounts and license plate numbers.
- Immediately get the medical care that you need, regardless of how bad you think you were injured in the accident. In fact, seek medical care even if you think you aren’t injured, since adrenaline and shock can cause serious injuries to not show up until later.
- Contact law enforcement as soon as it is safe so that they can document the motor vehicle accident in order to provide later evidence for your car accident case.
- Collect information from eye witnesses to your car accident. Get their name, phone number, and email address, if possible. Witnesses to the actual collision will go a long way in helping your auto accident attorney provide you with the best legal representation later.
- Finally, seriously consider contacting a Williston injury attorney who is experienced with car accident claims and who has a reputation for actually taking their cases to trial, when necessary. The longer you wait to hire a car accident attorney, the more evidence will be lost and the harder it will be to build a successful personal injury claim.
Keep Records for Your Car Accident Claim
Be sure to create a folder where you can keep each and every record that pertains to your accident injury case. For example, keep copies of medical records, police reports, documents from your insurance companies, correspondence with anyone regarding your claim, and a log of time spent on the phone, time at doctor’s offices, and so on.
Getting Maximum Compensation for Your Car Accident Case
Car accidents are extremely stressful and expensive events. They are always unexpected and almost always threaten to ruin, or serious disrupt, someone financially, emotionally, or physically. Getting compensation for your car accident damages is the best way to ensure that you and your family are not suffering years later because of the accident.

- Medical bills

- Lost wages from missed work
- Future loss of earnings
- Costs of future surgeries
- Pain and suffering
- And so many others, depending on the case
