Our Approach

Our Iowa workers' compensation lawyers handle a range of small, medium, and large cases. However, our approach is the same for every case.

We know that it can be very stressful for our clients to be injured, and they have many questions. There can be bills, missed work, worries about the future, and the strain of dealing with the unfamiliar nature of the claims or litigation process. Therefore, we make it a priority to be available to either answer their questions immediately or promptly return their calls.

The legal system has many time deadlines and other requirements. Our experienced attorneys review each case to identify and comply with all applicable deadlines such as serving or filing:

  • Pre-petition notices of injury in workers’ compensation cases.
  • Dramshop claim notices.
  • Notices to insurance carriers of potential claims for uninsured motorist coverage or underinsured motorist coverages.
  • Petitions for civil suits or workers’ compensation claims.

We know that each case is unique. Therefore, our approach is to thoroughly investigate and research the facts and applicable law of each case. Our Iowa workers' compensation attorneys also take whatever steps are necessary to effectively present the case at trial such as deposing key witnesses, preserving important exhibits, and obtaining qualified experts.

Our objective is to prepare a winning liability case, and to also make sure that our clients are properly compensated for each type of damages to which they are entitled.

As we work on each case we always try to avoid or minimize any delays. Our goal is to prepare each case for presentation as quickly as possible, and keep it moving forward towards resolution at trial or through a negotiated settlement.

Our attorneys have over 90 years of combined legal experience and share this knowledge with each other. Our approach is to have one attorney primarily responsible for each case. However, all of our attorneys consult on each case and offer advice and ideas.
