Navigating Iowa car accidents without legal counsel can be possible in certain scenarios. For instance, if you've experienced minor injuries. Requiring only a few medical appointments and you make a complete recovery with no lasting effects/scarring. Or if the accident resulted in property damage alone.
Handling your case by yourself might be an option. Opting to represent yourself can be sensible for smaller cases where legal assistance might not significantly benefit you. Why give up a portion of your potentially modest settlement to hire an attorney?
If your situation involves substantial medical intervention like physical therapy, surgery, pain management care, or other invasive procedures, it would be advised to consult a seasoned Iowa Car Accident Lawyer. Having an experienced car accident attorney looking out for your best interests, protecting your rights, and leading you through the process will not only relieve your stress but also will likely result in more money for you.
Have you considered:
- Identifying the appropriate settlement value for injuries resembling yours from a car accident?
- Assessing the insurance coverage of the at-fault driver and exploring alternative means to cover your injuries if their coverage falls short?
- Determining if additional insurance policies could potentially compensate you, particularly if the other driver has only the state-mandated minimum coverage of $20,000 per person.
An accomplished car accident attorney will be able to evaluate your case based on medical records, police reports, and other essential documents, and should provide a feasible range for your case's value.
What else should an injury attorney do for you?
1. Conducting a comprehensive case investigation, which might include hiring a private investigator for witness interviews and engaging with investigating officers.
2. Serving as the point of contact for insurance adjusters on your behalf.
3. Request and obtain your medical records and bill
4. Managing subrogation claims pertinent to your case.
5. Handling communications with collection agencies and medical providers regarding bills.
6. Clarifying the legal process and guiding your decision on filing suit or trying to settle first.
7. Offering a realistic case valuation after reviewing medical records and knowing the facts in your case.
