Even if you know that the other driver was solely at fault for causing the accident in which you were injured, it is critical that you take the right steps to ensure that your right to compensation is not jeopardized in the future. Many times, an accident victim will be forced to settle for a lower amount of compensation simply because the person did not protect his or her rights from the very beginning. Let us handle the legal stresses from the start so that you can focus your attention on getting back on your feet.
How Do I Know If I Am Entitled to Compensation for an Accident?
Depending on the circumstances of the accident in which you were injured, you may be entitled to compensation—either by filing a claim with the other driver's insurance company or by pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. A talented attorney can help you prove that is was the other party's negligence acts that led to your accident.
Some of these acts can include the following:
- Texting or talking on a cell phone while driving
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs
- Operating a vehicle at reckless speeds
- Driving while severely fatigued
- Eating or drinking while behind the wheel
- Inadequate maintenance of the vehicle
Taking the Right Steps After a Car Accident in Iowa
You need to keep a few things in mind when dealing with the aftermath of a collision. First and foremost, you should avoid admitting any fault, or even giving an innocent "I'm sorry." The other party's insurance company may use manipulative tactics to do just that—they want to bully you into taking an unfair offer—but you must know that you do not have to give any sort of statement without first consulting with a lawyer.
Second, take pictures of the damage that was done in the accident. By taking the time to snap a few photos of the scene with your cell phone—including close-ups of the damage that was done to both vehicles and of any injuries that were sustained—you will have solid evidence that you can use in your favor later on.
Finally, take the time to speak to any witnesses that were present at the time of the accident. Take down their names and contact information so that you will have their testimonies readily available, as you may soon be involved in contentious legal proceedings with the other driver's insurance company.
