Only with comprehensive evidence will you be in a position to establish fault and hold another party legally liable for your accident. 

Injured Victims Deserve the Maximum Financial Compensation

  • Medical expenses; 
  • Physical rehabilitation; 
  • Lost wages;

Personal Injury Cases in Iowa: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Iowa?

Under Iowa law (I.C.A. § 614.1), you generally have two years from the date of the injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. What happens if you wait too long to take action? You could lose out on your rights. Be proactive: Consult with an Iowa personal injury attorney right away. 

How Does Comparative Negligence Work in an Iowa Personal Injury Claim?

Under Iowa law (I.C.A. § 668.3(1)(b)), personal injury claims are subject to a modified comparative negligence standard. You can still recover compensation as long as you are liable for no more than 50 percent of your own accident. However, your recovery will be reduced proportionately. 

Will Insurance Policy Limits Affect My Case?

Insurance policy limits can affect your case. The defendant’s policy limit is the maximum amount their insurer will pay. If your damages exceed this limit, you may need to explore other avenues for compensation. An experienced Iowa personal injury lawyer can help. 

How are Pain and Suffering Damages Calculated?

Pain and suffering damages are calculated based on the severity and impact of your injuries. Factors include the nature of the injury, the level of pain, and how the injury affects your daily life and future. There is no set formula to calculate pain and suffering in Iowa.
