Why Choose Mighty?
Enjoy higher-quality personal injury lawyers for lower fees with Mighty Law. We're a holistic network of legal, financial, and medical services designed to support you after a Iowa truck accident. Ease into all-around recovery with our personalized treatment plans, flexible loan options, vehicle repair assistance, and of course, steadfast legal advocates.
If you’re hurt in an accident, the most obvious course of action is to get medical treatment. But getting treatment after an accident has implications that go beyond just your physical health. People get pressure from their attorney to get treatment, even though their attorney may not disclose that often medical treatment from an accident isn’t covered by health insurance, and your legal settlement may depend on the treatment you get.

What should I do if I get in a truck accident in Iowa?
Being involved in a truck accident can be overwhelming, and it's important to take care of yourself first. Check for injuries and request immediate medical care. Notify law enforcement as soon as possible, too. Once the police arrive at the scene, they'll write an official accident report and exchange driver information. If you can, collect photo evidence, gather witness statements, and jot down any road or vehicle abnormalities.
What is the average settlement for a truck accident in Iowa?
Unfortunately, we're not able to give a specific dollar amount for average truck settlements in Iowa. Settlement information is often kept private and amounts vary greatly. Some cases settle in the tens or hundreds of thousands while others may reach the millions.
When you work with a Iowa truck accident lawyer from our network, one of our top responsibilities is to value your case accurately. Your specific case depends on the required medical expenses, severity of injuries, and lost income, among other factors.
Is hiring a truck accident lawyer in Iowa necessary?
Hiring a Iowa truck accident attorney is not always necessary, but truck accidents are often serious and complex. A skilled legal team can guide you through paperwork, build a compelling case, and provide valuable context for evaluating offers. Usually, you'll be able to recover with less stress and a higher payout.
How much does a Iowa truck accident attorney cost through Mighty's referral network?
For starters, you only pay if you receive a payout. We're transparent about the next steps too: cases that settle directly include a pre-suit fee of 33% of the gross settlement amount, while cases involving a lawsuit have a post-suit fee of 40%.
If you use a lawyer in our network, in most cases we offer a 10% reimbursement on the legal fee at the end of your case. Because our network is your network.
What does the process of working with a truck accident lawyer from Mighty's network look like?
No matter how you arrived here, we'll start with an initial screening to learn the facts about your case. If we're able to lend a helping hand, a Mighty case manager will then collect important documents such as accident reports, medical expenses, and insurance information. We'll also create a personalized treatment plan to help you heal.
Once the medical bills are in, your truck accident lawyer will assemble a strong case and begin negotiations with the insurance company. Most claims reach a settlement. In some situations, if there's no agreed-upon offer, they'll also file a lawsuit on your behalf.
How long will it take to investigate a truck accident claim in Iowa?
The average personal injury case settles in 1.5 years, but truck claims are often complicated cases involving various parties. While some cases settle within a year, many last multiple years. Your specific situation will vary depending on the length of medical treatment, the response time of the trucking and insurance companies, and the necessity of a lawsuit.
What happens once my Iowa truck accident case is settled?
Once your case is closed, you're good to go! At the end of your Iowa truck accident case, we'll deduct any outstanding fees. These may include medical expenses, loans, and legal fees. You'll keep the rest of the settlement. And if you used a lawyer in our network, we'll also give you 10% of your total costs back.
