Call 911 or ask someone else to call. Police officers from local law enforcement or the South Dakota Highway Patrol can make sure that everyone is safe and get help for the injured. Be sure to get medical attention, even if you seem to feel fine. Some injuries have delayed symptoms. Police officers will also gather information and conduct an initial investigation. They will then complete a Motor Vehicle Traffic Accident Report. Get a copy of this report as soon as it is available. The information it contains can help when you file a claim for financial compensation.
