Since 1975, we have helped hundreds of injured Iowans make financial recoveries from injuries. Unfortunately, in the last 40 years we have seen far too many hardworking Iowans make costly mistakes before they hired us because clients they did not know about their rights and responsibilities under Iowa law. While you may not need an attorney in your case, you should at least learn about your rights and responsibilities so you can avoid making a costly mistake.
We know that you probably have questions like:
- How long do I have to bring my claim? (Hint: in work injuries, it can be as short as 90 days. In motor vehicle accidents, it can be as short as six months!)
- Should I provide a recorded statement to the insurance company and sign papers for them?
- How do I know if the insurance company's settlement offer is fair?
- Who should pay for my medical bills?
- If I hire an attorney how do I pay them?
- Can I be fired for filing a work comp claim?
- What is the Iowa Second Injury Fund, and does it apply to my work injury?
Before you sign any documents for the insurance company, hire a personal injury attorney or make a potential mistake in your case, learn about your rights and responsibilities by downloading one of our FREE Books!
In order to protect yourself and your case, it's imperative you understand your rights and responsibilities under Iowa's laws. Insurance companies have legal teams working for them. What book or resource do you have to protect your rights? Who is looking out for your best interests? Sometimes insurance companies will take advantage of injured Iowans who do not know their rights by offering them low settlements or denying payment altogether.
Before you talk to the insurance adjustor, sign any forms, or hire a lawyer, educate yourself!
