What Happens When a Creditor Ignores a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Discharge Order?

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is designed to allow Iowa residents and businesses to discharge their outstanding debts.

What Happens When an Iowa Jury Returns an Incomplete Verdict?

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

In an Iowa personal injury lawsuit, the plaintiff is entitled to a trial by jury. This means the jury is charged with deciding who is legally responsible for the underlying accident.

Can Iowa Workers Sue a Workers’ Compensation Claims Administrator for Acting in “Bad Faith”?

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

Iowa courts have long permitted “bad faith” lawsuits against insurance companies with respect to first-party claims.

Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help you in keeping secured assets such as your home or other real property with an outstanding mortgage.

What Happens When You Negotiate an Auto Accident Settlement with a Negligent Driver’s Insurance Company?

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

If you are injured in an auto accident caused by someone else’s negligence–say, a driver runs a red light and hits your car–Iowa law allows you to seek compensation for your damages. In many cases, this means dealing with the negligent driver’s insurance company. These insurers are often quick to offer a settlement, which… Read More »


Do I Need “Medical Evidence” Before Requesting Alternate Care Under Workers’ Compensation?

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

Unlike many other states, In Iowa the workers’ compensation system allows the employer–not the injured employee–to choose the medical care you receive. If you object to the employer’s choices, or you simply believe your injury requires additional care beyond what the employer says it will provide, you can file a petition for “alternate care”… Read More »


The Consequences of Lying in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Case

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

Many Iowa residents are forced to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy because they are faced with a large civil judgment they simply cannot pay.

Iowa Court of Appeals Upholds $127 Million Personal Injury Verdict

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

Most personal injury claims are the result of reckless or negligent behavior. But sometimes, personal injury cases are the result of criminal activity.

Some debts cannot be discharged in Chapter 7 bankruptcy. One of the better-known categories of non-dischargeable debt is student loans.
