Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Cases

However, our attorneys at Galligan Law are here to guide you through the personal injury claims process. You can trust us to provide the support you need to move forward. Please see some answers to frequently asked questions about Iowa personal injury claims.

How long do I have to file a claim for a personal injury in Iowa?

In Iowa, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. It is vital that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible after your accident to get started on your case.

What kind of compensation can I obtain through an Iowa personal injury claim?

In Iowa, you can file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for the economic and noneconomic damages caused by your accident. Economic damages include compensation for your medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, lost future income and earning capacity and any other measurable monetary losses. Noneconomic damages compensate you for any pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement or mental anguish suffered.

Should I accept a settlement offer from the insurance company?

Soon after an accident, you may start receiving calls from the insurance company offering you a settlement to quickly close your claim. However, it is vital that you do not accept any settlement offers without first speaking to an experienced personal injury lawyer. Insurance companies will always try to settle your claim as quickly and cheaply as possible. When you accept a settlement offer, it typically is for much less than you deserve.
