When bringing a claim against State, County, municipal, School and other governmental entities, a notice of intent to bring a claim must be given to the proper government entities within 180 days of the incident under South Dakota Codified Law 3-21-2, which states:
No action for the recovery of damages for personal injury, property damage, error, or omission of death caused by a public entity or its employees may be maintained against the public entity or its employees unless written notice of the time, place, and cause of injury is given to the public entity as provided by this chapter within one hundred eighty days after the injury.

The written notice must contain certain specific information. Failure to give the proper notice to the proper government official will result in your personal injury claim being barred under state law.
