Southeast Iowa Personal Injury Attorneys
If you have suffered an injury through an accident, medical malpractice, violent act (e.g. assault), use of a defective appliance, product or drug, or due to some other wrongful act, you may be entitled to a large recovery under Iowa state law. At the Noyes Law Office in Fairfield, we have helped many Iowans just like yourself recover from huge debts due to high medical bills and lost wages and win damages for the pain and suffering they have endured. Do not hesitate to contact our Southeast Iowa personal injury attorneys to find out how we can help you and your family get the maximum compensation you are owed for your injury.
How Do I Know if I Can Recover for My Injury?
In Iowa, an injured plaintiff must be able to prove that the defendant acted wrongfully by negligently, recklessly, or intentionally causing the plaintiff’s injuries. Many defendants will try to argue they did not act wrongfully, or that their actions were not the cause of the plaintiff’s injuries. By contacting us as soon as possible after your injury, we can begin to investigate the injury and the defendant’s actions to make your best case for recovery in a settlement or at trial.
What if I was Partially at Fault in Causing the Injury?
Under Iowa law, even if the plaintiff was partially at fault in causing the injury, he or she will still be able to recover so long as the plaintiff’s fault was less than the combined fault of all defendants. While your total recovery may be diminished based on your fault, we will fight to prove that you are entitled to the maximum recovery possible.
How Much Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Suit?
In a personal injury suit, you may be entitled to the following damages:
- Past and future medical expenses, including rehabilitation
- Lost wages, both past and future, including reduced income potential as a result of the injury
- Pain and suffering experienced throughout your lifetime
- Loss of consortium
- Punitive damages (in limited cases)
Do You Bring Wrongful Death Matters?
Yes. Where a person has died due to the wrongful acts of another, we will represent the deceased and his or her family in bringing suit for the losses suffered by the family as a result of the death. Damages available in a wrongful death suit include:
- Damages suffered by the deceased prior to death, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering
- The lost income that the deceased would have earned over his or her lifetime
- The loss of family services provided by the deceased
- Funeral and burial expenses
Can I Bring a Suit If I Can’t Afford to Pay an Attorney?
Absolutely. We handle cases on a contingency basis, meaning we don’t charge a legal fee unless you recover. We can discuss all fee-related matters during your free initial consultation.
I’ve Already Been Offered a Settlement, So Why Would I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
Insurance companies and defendants want you to settle for the least amount of money possible. The fact that they’ve offered you a settlement is testament to the fact that you likely have a strong case for personal injury, and they are hoping you go away with a small settlement without asking for more. By hiring an Iowa personal injury attorney, you are involving a professional who knows exactly what you are owed under the law and who will fight to force defendants and insurers to pay you the true value of your claim.
I See So Many Ads for Injury Lawyers, So Why Should I Work with Your Firm?
