Personal Injury Overview

If you have been injured in an automobile accident, slip and fall, animal attack, medical negligence, or other personal injury, the Thomas J. Reilly Law Firm can help you get the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to under the law.

Many injured people believe that the insurance companies will deal with them fairly. They also believe that the insurance companies keep an injured person’s best interests in mind. This is simply not true.

When an insurance company receives notice that you have been injured in an accident, an adjuster is assigned to the case. The adjuster will call you to get a “fact statement.” Often the adjuster has marching orders to solicit information from you that will assist the insurance company in denying any claim you make for compensation for your injuries. Insurance companies have three main objectives: delay, deny and defend. The adjuster will often be extremely nice to an injured party, with the hopes that they can get the person to sign away their legal rights before talking to an attorney. Almost no offer made by an insurance adjuster is equal to the full amount that an injured person would be entitled to by law.

The Thomas J. Reilly Law Firm has over fifty years of combined experience in dealing with insurance companies. Our staff includes individuals who have previously worked for large insurance companies and insurance company lawyers. Our staff’s experience provides inside knowledge and experience to assist us in helping you get the best result in your case.

Workers' Compensation Overview

If you have been injured at work, the Thomas J. Reilly Law Firm can help you get the full amount of compensation that you are entitled to under the law.

Many injured people believe that their employer and their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company will deal with them fairly. This is often not true.

When an employer and their insurance company receive notice that you have been injured at work, they will usually assign an adjuster to your case, as well as a case nurse manager. The adjuster or employer will call you or meet with you to get a “fact statement.” Often the adjuster or employer has marching orders to solicit information from you that will assist them in denying any claim you make for compensation for your injuries. The case nurse manager is often involved to attend doctor appointments with you and provide pressure on medical providers to return you to work as soon as possible without any limitations on what you are able to do. The fact of the matter is that an injured worker is often outnumbered and too frequently outmatched by the employer, their insurance company, and the insurance company’s representatives. The employer and insurance company often do not inform injured workers of their full rights under Iowa’s laws, do not pay full amounts due to injured workers, and delay, deny, and defend work injury claims. The injured worker suffers as a result.

The Thomas J. Reilly Law Firm has over fifty years of combined experience in helping injured workers, and we have experience in the intricacies of Iowa’s workers’ compensation laws. Our staff includes individuals who have previously worked for large insurance companies and insurance company lawyers. Our staff’s experience provides inside knowledge and experience to assist us in helping you get the best result in your case.
