do I need a lawyer after a wrong-way accident?

The accident was straightforward. You were driving in your travel lane when another car entered your lane going the wrong way and caused your car crash.

The wrong-way driver was responsible for your accident. You might expect the wrong-way driver’s insurer to quickly agree about liability and pay you fair damages for your accident injuries. The case may seem so simple that you don’t need an attorney.

But You May Need an Attorney to Get Fair Compensation

Insurance adjusters know what tricks to use to minimize recoveries even when liability seems obvious and you suffer significant injuries. An attorney can help you by:

  • Gathering evidence to clearly establish liability. This evidence could include photos from the accident, video from nearby surveillance cameras, witness statements, pictures of the damaged vehicles, and expert witness testimony.
  • Gathering evidence to prove the extent and value of your injuries. This evidence will include your medical records and could include other evidence, such as expert testimony, to establish the value of your past and future medical costs, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, physical pain, emotional suffering, and other damages.

Additionally, an Iowa car accident lawyer can take the stress of negotiating with the insurance company or going to court off of your shoulders. You can focus on your recovery, family, work, and the things that you enjoy while your lawyer makes sure that your legal right to a fair recovery is protected.
