Personal Injury Cases We Handle

No one can truly be prepared for an accident. By definition, they are unplanned, and no time is the “right time” for a serious injury. Whether it is a car accident on your way to work, a serious fall at your neighborhood grocery store, or a dog bite from the new pup next door, these events are often painful, as well as unexpected. To make matters worse, injured individuals and their family members are often left to repair damages and pay necessary bills following an injury. At LaMarca Law Group, P.C., we know how devastating these unexpected costs are, especially if you did everything possible to prevent the accident. Our attorneys have spent decades fighting for people in situations like yours, and we want to help if you were the victim of negligence. In legal terms, negligence occurs whenever a person acts recklessly, carelessly, or in a way a reasonable person would not act. Read on to learn more about the cases we take on, your possible compensation, and why you might consider hiring a personal injury lawyer.

Personal injury cases cover a wide range of incidents with varying levels of severity. Over the years, we have taken on small cases as well as those with settlements in the millions. Many people assume their case is too insignificant to require legal action, but a lawyer can make sure to help you and your family receive what you deserve following an accident.

Iowa Personal Injury by the Numbers

Two of the most common causes of injury are traffic accidents and medical malpractice suits. These injuries are often serious and traumatic. We have compiled some of the official data available on these topics to show you how large of a problem these issues really are. In Iowa and across the nation, countless innocent people are hurt during these incidents.

Car Accidents

Because traffic accidents can involve cars, trucks, bicycles, and pedestrians, everyone can be affected by them. So many of us spend a large amount of time in vehicles commuting, traveling, and running errands, making car accidents extremely common.

According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, there were:

  • 337 total traffic fatalities in 2020, an increase of .6% from 2019
  • 1,099 distracted driving accidents in 2019, leading to 538 injuries and 3 fatalities
  • 43 motorcycle accident fatalities in 2019, most of which occurred in June and August
  • 319 traffic fatalities and 18,178 traffic injuries in 2018
  • 56,670 total traffic accidents in Iowa in 2018

To make matters worse, data trends show that the rate of traffic accidents leading to injuries and fatalities has steadily been increasing in Iowa over the last five years.

Medical Malpractice

We all trust our doctors to do their best work and act with honesty, integrity, and competence when they treat their patients. Unfortunately, many Iowans receive a poor standard of care from physicians, nurses, dentists, and other medical professionals. A medical malpractice claim can follow from improper treatment, birth injuries, or even surgery performed on the wrong body part.

According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services National Practitioner Data Bank, this data represents numbers from 2006 to 2016 in Iowa.

  • 934 medical malpractice payment reports
  • 4,980 adverse action reports
  • 6,226 total reports

Medical malpractice payment reports are indicators that medical practitioners had to pay money to certain patients for their claims. Adverse action reports are similar to medical malpractice reports, but they are a less serious offense.

Record of Success

At LaMarca Law Group, P.C., we are confident that our results speak for themselves because we fight hard for every client we choose to represent. Many attorneys will offer you hypotheticals about how a case could go, but we want to tell you about how some of our verdicts actually happened.

  • $2.74 million settlement for a 24-year-old woman who suffered multiple pelvic fractures and a concussion after being run over by a DART bus in downtown Des Moines.
  • $4.3 million trial court ruling against the Iowa Department of Transportation for negligent maintenance of a highway resulting in a head-on collision seriously injuring 2 members of the Drake University women's basketball team.
  • $2 million medical malpractice jury verdict after a spine surgery operation left a 55-year-old woman partially disabled.
  • $4.4 million trial court ruling for fraud by a developer who diverted loan proceeds rather than pay a construction firm which built subdivision infrastructure in reliance on loan proceeds. The ruling consisted of $1.1 million in actual damages and $3.3 million in punitive damages.

The scenarios above are just a handful of the numerous cases our attorneys have tried and won over the years. It is important to remember that these cases did not involve extraordinary circumstances. These were regular people who ended up in bad situations through no fault of their own. If you were also hurt because of the reckless actions of another party, we may be able to help you as well.

Have Questions?

Available 24/7 to Provide Answers
  • How much is my case worth?

    It is difficult for our attorneys to determine the answer to this question without knowing the details of your case. When it comes to a personal injury claim, several factors can help you determine how much your case will be worth. Such factors include your age, the type of accident, where you live, whether or not you have insurance, and the severity of your injuries. Without knowing all of these details and the specifics of your situation, we cannot make an accurate assessment. With that in mind, do not hesitate to contact our offices with this question. We may be able to evaluate your case once we have more information.

  • Why should I seek compensation?

    An accident is hard for every person involved. One incident can lead to weeks, months, or even years of struggle for you and your family. Especially if you did not cause the accident, you should not have to pay for another person’s mistake. We can help you recover damages for medical bills, insurance payments, property damage, lost income, and pain and suffering. These are common issues following traumatic events and we do not want you to have to handle them alone. Seeking legal assistance and fighting for compensation ensures that you get the money your case is worth.

  • Why should I choose LaMarca Law Group, P.C.?
