When Does an Iowa Employer Have to Pay “Penalty Benefits” in a Workers’ Compensation Case?

Workers’ compensation is supposed to ensure employees receive timely medical and wage replacement benefits if they are injured on the job.

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.

Just as important, the discharge also prevents a creditor from taking any further legal action to collect the debt. If the creditor… Read More »

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.

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