Des Moines Personal Injury Lawyers Dedicated To Maximizing Your Recovery

Every day, in almost every city in Iowa, someone is injured due to another’s negligence. The vast majority of these accidents result in very minor injuries, but serious injuries are not uncommon. If you are injured in an accident caused by someone else, you need a law firm that understands how to help you protect your injury claim. Whether a car accident, a slip-and-fall accident or a dog bite injury, we advocate for the maximum possible compensation our clients deserve. At Loney & Schueller, LLC, we represent people throughout Iowa who have been injured as the result of negligent acts by others. Based in West Des Moines, our attorneys often travel at our clients’ convenience to meet their legal needs. We provide compassionate service and personalized representation to each of our clients and represent their best interests as if they were family.

Put Our Personal Injury Experience To Work For You

Attorneys Eric Loney, Randy Schueller and Sarah Kouri have more than 50 years of legal experience working to protect the rights and dignity of personal injury victims. They work tirelessly on behalf of our clients to obtain the settlement or court verdict they deserve. At our firm, we understand that injuries change lives. We help present a clear picture of the injuries caused by the accident and why you should recover the compensation you are requesting from those at fault for your injuries. When a settlement of your case is not possible, we have experienced trial lawyers, ready to present your claims in the courtroom. We are not afraid of insurance companies. We will not let them push you into a bad settlement just to resolve your claim.

Do Not Accept An Insurance Settlement Until You Talk To Us

Many of our clients come to us on referral or after an insurance company has made an initial settlement offer to cover their injuries. It is critical to speak with one of our experienced attorneys before accepting a settlement, making a statement or signing any document from an insurance company. You could be signing away rights to benefits you might need.

I was involved in a car accident. After speaking with my medical providers they recommended Attorney Eric J. Loney to handle my personal injury case. Eric was aggressive in my case and took the time to explain the process. At the time of settlement, Eric negotiated with the insurance company and the medical providers so that I was comfortable in the amount of settlement. I recommend that others use him for their personal injury cases.

How does a personal injury attorney help me?

A personal injury case involves much more than simply “telling it like it is.” Instead, the process to recover the fair and just compensation you need involves complicated legal rules that in some cases have developed over the course of more than 100 years.

In addition to exchanging answers to written questions called interrogatories, the law requires an exchange of documents. Your attorney will help you when it is time to provide a statement under oath. This is called a deposition. Your attorney not only defends you in your deposition but also interviews the opposing side’s witnesses and key players. Ultimately, the investigation involved in building your case will enable your attorney to advise you regarding your legal options. Those legal options may include settlement, further negotiation and even trial. Whatever option you choose, you want to know you are relying on attorneys with seasoned legal judgment.

What Happens In A Personal Injury Case?

Very few people who come to us want to go to court. Generally, personal injury cases settle and do not proceed to court. However, you need an attorney who is prepared to take your case to trial if the insurance company is not willing to make a reasonable offer. To settle your case or prepare for trial, your attorney will deal with the insurance company and the parties responsible for your harm to secure the compensation you need and deserve. To do that, your attorney will work with you to investigate your case to gather facts and documentation that will best position your argument.

Gathering facts and documentation occurs during a phase of a case called discovery. During discovery, your attorney sends written questions, called interrogatories, to the other side. These questions will ask the other side about the facts of your case to clarify matters. It can also be helpful in determining whether going to trial is necessary. The other side will most likely send interrogatories for you to answer. Additionally, your attorney and the other side will probably exchange documents along with these interrogatories. Where necessary, you and the other party may also give statements under oath to discuss the issues in your case. These statements are called depositions.

You Do Not Have To Go It Alone: We Understand Your Fear.

All phases of litigation involve technical rules. You will need an experienced lawyer who understands these rules and how to navigate the complexities of litigation to ensure maximum recovery. Not surprisingly, many people fear this system. It seems overwhelming. If you are afraid, we understand. We have helped people just like you to manage and overcome this fear and protect their rights. At Loney & Schueller, our Des Moines personal injury attorneys bring more than 50 years of combined legal experience to the table on every personal injury case we handle. For that reason, you can rely on us with confidence. You will know when we give you advice regarding settling your case or taking your case to court that you are receiving advice from attorneys who understand how the personal injury legal system works.

Why Aren’t Insurance Companies Helpful After An Accident?

You faithfully paid your premiums. You notified all the right parties. You may have even prepared yourself by taking the time to understand the terms of your insurance policy and how the insurance company wanted you to proceed in the case of injury. So why won’t the insurance company help you? You are not alone in asking that question. Many people throughout Iowa come to us wondering why an insurance company will not assist them and deliver a service they agreed to provide after they have been injured in an accident.

Looking Out For Their Own Best Interests

Generally speaking, insurance companies are committed to protecting their bottom line like any other business. To best protect profits, insurance companies seek to pay out as little as possible. The insurance company allows you to believe the insurance adjuster is there primarily for you. But that is not the case. In fact, the insurance adjuster’s goal is to pay you as little as possible. You may become frustrated trying to obtain the compensation that you believe you are entitled to receive under your policy. If your insurer is not meeting their specific obligations after an accident, it is important to understand that you do have options available to you.

We Are There For You, Not The Insurance Company

For that reason, you want someone in your corner who is there for you and you only. The attorneys at Loney & Schueller in West Des Moines can help you understand what is happening. Our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to standing up for your rights. You can count on us to represent your interests.

Randy vigorously negotiated my case and I received a lump sum payment in excess of $200,000. He worked extremely hard for me and made sure I was taken care of. I am more than pleased with the outcome of my case.

Rusty from St. Augustine, Florida

Without Eric’s help and guidance I am not sure where I would be. I thank the person who referred Eric to me every day. I recommend that others use Eric for their workers’ compensation cases.

Terry of Iowa

Sarah also obtained a settlement from homeowner’s the insurance company. I would certainly recommend Sarah to represent you with regard to injuries received due to a dog bite.
