Personal Injury Attorneys in Iowa

Accidents happen. In the blink of an eye, a slip of judgment can change your life for weeks, months, years or forever. The aftermath can be overwhelming. Do not make the mistake of thinking that it is the responsibility of the insurance company to educate you, guide you, or least of all, advise you of your legal rights. When mistakes happen, make sure you have the right people on your side. You need honest, practical and timely advice from experienced personal injury attorneys.

The team of skilled personal injury lawyers at Mueller, Berg & Schmidt, PLLC, has over 50 years of combined experience in personal injury law. There are numerous benefits to having professionals assist you after you've been injured through no fault of your own.

  • Legal representation ensures that your rights are protected
  • You are treated fairly throughout the claims and litigation process
  • You get a settlement that is fair and just under the law

Personal injury lawyers also take away the burden of dealing with the insurance companies so you can focus on what is most important-healing, getting back on your feet and continuing on with your life.

How to Know When You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

No two accidents are exactly the same, so each circumstance is unique. You should never assume that you may not have an injury claim until you speak with a qualified, professional personal injury lawyer. We will be happy to provide an overview of the process and give you an unbiased, honest assessment of your injury claim. Our personal injury lawyers in Des Moines advise our clients on the options available to them under Iowa law. We will also give you the essential do's and don'ts and what to expect in the initial contact with the insurance company, whether it is your own insurance company or the at-fault party's insurance company.

Under Iowa law, an injured party is entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering. Under certain circumstances, punitive damages and losses of consortium may be applicable. The law is complex and without the proper legal advice from your personal injury attorney, you will not know if you are receiving all the compensation you are entitled to. Our experienced personal injury lawyers in Des Moines will be happy to fight your case so you can claim what's rightfully yours.

  • Motorcycle accident
  • Semi truck accident
  • Premises liability (slip and fall injury, animal attack)
  • Brain injury
  • Wrongful death

After a motor vehicle accident, property damage is a separate claim from the injuries and is first to be addressed so you can get back on the road. Property damage can generally be handled directly, but MBS lawyers in Des Moines are here to provide any advice and assistance needed.

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Are By Your Side

MBS offers a variety of legal assistance, but one of our primary focuses is on personal injury cases. When you choose our personal injury attorneys to represent you, you can count on having an experienced lawyer who is well-versed in this type of case. We assist injured persons across the state of Iowa. While it is beneficial to all parties to resolve a claim in settlement negotiations, we have no hesitation in proceeding into litigation to ensure our clients receive the compensation they deserve. Each of our personal injury attorneys are well-respected in the legal community and jury-friendly. We care about the outcome of our clients, and that quality shines through in our work.

If you choose to represent yourself and retain counsel, that is your choice. You can handle a claim independently and take the chance of not receiving all the compensation you are entitled to under the law. On the other hand, you can partner with the experts at MBS Law who will ensure that you receive the assistance and guidance necessary for you to make educated and informed decisions for a successful outcome.
