The driver who hit you will probably not admit to it. They know that they could get in serious trouble if they do, especially if they were breaking the law when they hit you. You will probably have to fight them with a convincing claim, which our attorneys can build for you. Using various types of evidence, we can see about making your case more powerful, so the opposition feels compelled to offer a fair settlement amount.
Evidence that could help your case includes:
- Police reports: If the police showed up at the scene of your crash, then the reports they file later could be crucial for your claim. It is difficult for insurance companies to refute evidence from a commonly trusted source like a law officer.
- Dashcam footage: Video footage captured by your dashcam could be the best form of evidence. Let us review the footage to see if it captured the moment that the other driver did something negligent or reckless that then caused the crash.
- Eyewitness testimonies: Please let our attorneys talk to any eyewitnesses who stopped to help after the crash. If they saw anything useful, then we can interview them to find out what and how that applies to your case.
- Medical records: Your medical records can prove that you suffered the injuries you have cited in your claim. Furthermore, your doctor should have noted how your injuries occurred and when.
In Iowa, you cannot pursue a car accident claim if you are found to be 51% liable (or greater) for the accident. In other words, you cannot be more at fault than the other driver or drivers involved. Furthermore, any award that you are given will be reduced by your liability percentage if you can file a claim. For example, if your liability is determined to be 15%, then the total amount of compensation owed to you will be reduced by 15%.
