Iowa follows a modified comparative negligence rule in personal injury cases. What does this mean in practice?

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.

By Noyes Law Office, P.C. |

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

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.
