Walker Works for Car Accident Victims
Leveling the Field Between Injured Iowans and Insurance CompaniesTM
The laws in Iowa car accident cases can be confusing and overwhelming especially if you have never been injured before. You may be wondering:
- Should my medical bills be paid by the other driver’s insurance?
- Who will pay my lost wages while I cannot work?
- How much compensation should I receive for pain and suffering?
- Should I hire a personal injury attorney in my case?
For the answers to these questions and much more information about car accident cases, Iowa personal injury lawyer Corey J. L. Walker has a book. He offers his car accident book at no cost, risk or obligation because after having represented hundreds of Iowans involved in accidents he has seen people make costly mistakes before they knew what they were doing.
For example did you know?
- It may seem like a good idea to tell your doctors to submit your medical bills to the insurance company for the other driver, but in reality this is a big mistake because they will not pay your bills as they are incurred. I know the insurance adjustor has probably told you “send the bills to me”, but that does not mean they will pay them. The only time the insurance company for the other driver will pay is if you sign away your rights and settle your case.
- Hiding past injuries or accidents from your medical providers can cost you thousands of dollars because the insurance company will eventually have access to all of your medical records both before and after the car crash.
These are only two examples of avoidable mistakes that Iowans make each year.

Today’s busy lifestyle has everyone multi-tasking wherever possible. Studies show that regardless of how busy you are, however, you should not combine anything with driving. When you are on the road, 100 percent of your focus should be on the road. This means not only leaving cell phone calls, texts and grooming for when the car is parked, but also eating. It has become all too common to drive through the local drive-thru and eat your lunch or dinner while you drive. Eating while driving not only takes your hands off of the wheel, but also your concentration, putting you at high risk of a car accident in Waterloo, Iowa.
Depending on what drivers are eating, the action could take your eyes, hands and focus off of the road. Whether you are eating or drinking, your hands are not on the wheel, not to mention your eyes. This … (keep reading)
