What should I do if I get in a truck accident in Des Moines?
The first step is to check for injuries and request medical care. Then, notify the police and move your vehicle to a safe area if you can. Once law enforcement arrives on the scene, they'll write an official report and help exchange driver information. Be sure to take photos of the point of contact, any noticeable truck safety violations, road signs and conditions, and other potentially relevant factors.
What is the average settlement for a truck accident in Des Moines?
It's almost impossible to provide a specific settlement amount for average Des Moines truck accidents. These cases vary greatly, and your settlement will depend on medical expenses, the presence of lasting injuries, and the possibility of truck safety violations, among other factors.
Settlements can range from the tens of thousands to the millions. When you work with a Des Moines truck accident lawyer from our network, we'll value your case and investigate options for maximizing your offers.
Is hiring a truck accident lawyer in Des Moines necessary?
You decide whether or not to hire a Des Moines truck accident lawyer. While it's not mandatory, a skilled attorney can help you maximize your settlement and simplify your recovery. Lawyers from Mighty's network bring years of experience in identifying truck safety violations, negotiating rigorously with third parties, and critically evaluating settlement offers. Professional legal representation may give you the best chance of receiving the compensation you deserve.
How much does a Des Moines truck accident attorney cost through Mighty Law's referral network?
We work on a contingency basis, so you only pay if you receive a payout. The fee is 33% of the gross settlement amount for claims that settle directly. If your case involves a lawsuit, the post-suit fee is 40%. You'll also also get 10% back on the fee for using a lawyer from our referral network.
What does the process of working with a truck accident lawyer from Mighty Law's network look like?
Once you've filled out our simple online form, a Mighty representative will reach out to hear the full story about your case. If we're a good fit for your situation, we'll then work together to collect the necessary documents, including medical expenses, accident reports, photographs, and more. We'll also help you set up a treatment plan, so you can heal on your terms.
When your medical bills are in, your lawyer will assemble your case and file a claim with the insurance company. Most cases end with a settlement. We may also help you file a lawsuit where needed.
How long will it take to investigate a truck accident claim in Des Moines?
The average personal injury case settles in 1.5 years, but your specific truck accident claim will vary. Such cases are often complicated, as they involve communication between both the insurance and trucking companies. Expect at least multiple months of negotiations, with the possibility that your claim could last several years.
What happens once my Des Moines truck accident case is settled?
Once your case is closed, we'll deduct any outstanding payments—legal fees, medical bills, and loans—then leave the rest of the settlement to you. If you used our network to find your lawyer, we'll also reimburse you 10% of your total costs. We want to send you on the road to recovery with as many options as possible.
