Iowa is an “at-fault insurance state.” This means that the person who caused your accident is responsible for paying the damages.

I would recommend meeting with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your case. In Iowa, you generally have 2 years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file a lawsuit within 2 years, your claim may be forever barred.
