Automobile accidents happen on Iowa roads every day. But when you're injured from being hit by another vehicle, there's nothing routine about how your life can be affected. You may suffer significant injuries that prevent you from working. Your injuries may require extensive and expensive surgeries or treatments. You may even be afraid to get behind the wheel of a car again. At Luneckas Law, we want to help.

Whether bad weather, a driver on a cell phone, or simple negligence contributed to the conditions that caused the accident, the fact remains that you're injured. Hurting. You need to heal. No matter what the cause, no one is ever prepared for the emotional and financial toll a car crash can create.

When someone harms you in an auto accident, that person is responsible for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. At Luneckas Law we’ll help you receive the compensation you deserve.

When you file a claim for damages, you must first prove you’re entitled to compensation. You must show that:
The other driver acted negligently, recklessly, or intentionally
The other driver’s actions caused the accident
You suffered injuries that can be compensated
Your injuries were caused by the accident

When you’re the victim of a car accident, the other party may refuse to accept responsibility, doctors may deny treatment without immediate payment, and insurance companies may fight every step of the way to avoid giving you the compensation to which you’re entitled.
Those billion dollar insurance companies with experienced claims managers may not take you seriously without the help of a car accident lawyer, and may even suggest you don’t really need one. You’ll appreciate the experience and professionalism of Luneckas Law, P.C.

After an accident, your primary concern should be getting well. We’ll work with your medical providers to assure you receive the care you need. We will also negotiate with the insurance companies to secure the compensation you deserve. We understand many of the techniques insurers use to try to avoid paying accident victims. Even if an uninsured or underinsured motorist hit you, we’ll pursue every possible source of compensation to pay your medical bills. Then you take care of the important business of healing and recovery.

Timing and organization are critical. After your injury, you will submit a claim to the other driver’s insurance company. The more documentation you supply, the easier it is for us to help you. When you seek our help, we complete a thorough investigation of the crash. The professionals at Luneckas Law compile evidence, gather testimonies, request accident reports, study medical bills, and seek other documents to support your claim.

We find out the answers to many questions, including:
Was the other party ticketed?
Did the police investigate and determine that the other person caused the accident?
What medical treatment have you received?
What medical treatment is anticipated in the future?
Are there any witnesses willing to sign an affidavit about the auto accident?

At Luneckas Law, we prepare every case for trial, even before we file a lawsuit. Many times, this in-depth preparation prevents a trial. Why? We can settle out of court because we can prove it’s in the insurance company’s best interest to offer you a fair settlement. When the insurance company settles, you receive a check and the matter is closed.

However, if the insurance company refuses to settle, a lawsuit may be necessary. As your counsel, we take care of all the details. We file the lawsuit, go to court on your behalf, present arguments to the judge, and attempt to negotiate a pre-trial settlement. If the case goes to trial, we represent you in court and present a compelling case to convince the judge or jury that you deserve compensation.
