South Dakota is believed to be a pure comparative fault state,

with varying time limits for filing a lawsuit against an auto accident.

The statute of limitation in the South Dakota auto accidents is as follows.

  • Six years for a crash involving the property damage.

The state uses the pure comparative fault law,

to clear the at-fault driver disputes that arise during the case hearings and settlements.

This way, even the at-fault driver can collect some compensation for the recovery from the other minor at-fault drivers.
