A: A South Dakota attorney could advise best, but your question remains for two weeks. In terms of your question on what you should do, there are a number of issues to sort out here. I hope no one was injured here, but if you were, reach out to attorneys to discuss your options there. Without insurance, recovery could be limited in most jurisdictions across the nation, but that's something a South Dakota attorney should advise on. You could also discuss with the attorney if there is anything to be concerned about in terms of legal action from the other side. About the no-insurance issue, by now you may have already responded or discussed with attorneys. If not, you could reach out to local attorneys. If you haven't already obtained the police report, try to get a copy. It could make your discussions with attorneys more productive. Good luck
