If I have been injured in a car accident in Iowa are there things that I should not do?

Yes.  If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident then the chances are that the insurance adjustor for the other company will call you at some point.  Often the insurance adjustor will have "just a few questions" they want to ask you on the phone while they record your conversation.  This is called a recorded statement and is generally a bad idea for you to provide.  If you want to consider providing a recorded statement, tell the insurance adjustor that you will provide them with a recorded statement as soon as they make the other driver, their insured, available for you to take his/her recorded statement.  The point is that do you really want to answer questions from a trained insurance adjustor without knowing your legal rights, how the system works, what they will be asking you, etc.?
