Our law firm represents injured people in workers’ compensation cases and civil personal injury cases all over the state of Iowa.

Set out below is a list of some of the primary topics in workers compensation and personal injury law. This is only the tip of the iceberg of the complex legal issues that our lawyers deal with continually. Our lawyers are constantly researching and analyzing the law to figure out the best approach for our clients.

In addition to knowing the law, our lawyers have a great deal of experience in figuring out who are the best expert witnesses to use in different types of cases. This gives our clients a tremendous advantage in litigation.

Our lawyers work very hard to get the best possible outcomes for our clients. Our philosophy is to prepare every case as if it is definitely going to be tried.

By thoroughly preparing our cases and obtaining quality expert witnesses, we are frequently able to obtain settlements that fairly compensate our clients for the injuries they have suffered.

If the defendants are not willing to pay the value of the case all of our prep work allows us to move forward easily and try the case to obtain a fair award.

Our lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience. There are very few problems or issues that we have not dealt with on behalf of our clients.

Our lawyers also have the ability to explain complex legal problems in an understandable way that allows our clients to make informed strategy decisions concerning their cases.

Being injured is always difficult. You have to deal with the pain, the physical limitations and the worries about the future. Our lawyers make the time to listen to your problems and answer your questions about how your case will be handled.

We provide free consultations in all workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. We handle work comp and personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis.
