Major attacks on Iowa’s workers compensation system are coming to the Iowa legislature.
from Andrew Mertens, Communications Director – Iowa Association for Justice
Iowa lawmakers are pursuing a major “tort reform” agenda at the Statehouse. The “Loser Pays” bill from earlier this year is currently in limbo, but lawmakers just filed a devastating bill that would practically wipe out medical malpractice lawsuits, and major cuts to the work comp system will be proposed in the coming days or weeks.
You¹ll be asked (multiple times) to call and email your legislators about these bills throughout the legislative session. But there is something else you can do.

Good morning, I wanted to take just a minute to write former and current clients of this law firm about an important issue that impacts your legal rights. State lawmakers are considering several bills this year that threaten the rights of injured Iowans in the courts and workers’ compensation system. These are not minor changes, these are major attacks on the legal rights of Iowans.

This doesn¹t cost you anything, ever. You are simply agreeing to receive 5-6 emails between now and May that alert you to dangerous legislation that you can encourage your lawmakers to oppose.
