CAR ACCIDENT LAWSUITS IN IOWA
It is important to remember that driving a motor vehicle is not a right, it is a privilege. Motorists have a legal responsibility to obey traffic laws, to drive safely and in accordance with the road conditions, and to respect other motorists, motorcyclists, and pedestrians. If a motorist causes a car accident because he or she was negligent, driving under the influence of a controlled substance, was inattentive, or was driving with a wanton disregard for the safety of others, he or she can be held liable in a civil court for losses and expenses sustained by the involved parties.
At our Des Moines, Iowa law office, car accident attorney Fredd J. Haas can advise you of your rights and suggest a plan for obtaining financial compensation in the event that you were injured in an Iowa car accident or trucking accident.

Compensation in an Iowa Auto Accident Case
Each civil case is different and we cannot accurately determine what compensation you may be eligible for without first thoroughly reviewing your claim. In a typical car accident case however, depending on the circumstances surrounding the claim, the plaintiff may be able to file for compensation relating to medical costs, rehabilitation costs, loss of wages (including future wages), inhibited earning capacity, pain and suffering, and punitive damages in the event that the defendant acted with gross negligence.
