My town has eflex for filing a small claim and after the 5th or 6th time of it being returned for missing information I let my frustrations break me down and put it aside to regroup, now I believe it may be too late.?
Generally speaking, a personal injury claim in Iowa must be filled within two (2) years of the date of the incident at issue. You should immediately contact an Iowa attorney who handles personal injury claims to discuss your situation.
My sister left no will and left me as the benefiiciary on her life insurance. The life insurance company said I need to set up an estate, how do I do this for a small estate? My sister has no realestate, nothing else.
Usually if you were named as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy upon providing proof of death and identification the funds will be paid directly to you. I suggest getting clarification in writing of exactly what it is they want.
I got pulled over for going over the speed limit while overtaking a vehicle. An officer was going 60 in front of a vehicle ahead of me. I overtook the car and after overtaking I slowed back down to the same speed the officer was going.
Speed limit violations in Iowa are, unfortunately, strict liability (e.g. you're guilty if you are operating a vehicle on a public roadway that exceeded the posted speed limit regardless of your subjective reasoning, intent, or knowledge of doing so). Inability to overtake another vehicle without...Read more »

I am not highly trained in this region but I think I can make it work. I made my own design for a motor creating electricity by means of magnets moving other magnets. I want to find out how I could claim my design so it can't be replicated.
I am not sure that I understand your idea. Most electric motors operate through the interaction between the motor's magnetic field and electric current in a wire winding to generate force in the form of rotation of a shaft.
Nonetheless, once you finish your invention, hire a patent...Read more »

It appears that the owner of the company is asserting that you are an independent contractor rather than an employee; there are many factors which determine this. You should immediately contact an Iowa attorney who handles employment / workers’ compensation claims.
An Iowa attorney could address your post the best, but it remains open for three weeks. Although there wasn't a question here, if you were wondering about your legal rights, contact an Iowa personal injury attorney. Many offer free initial consults for such cases if they are interested in...Read more »
I was purchasing the home from my landlord on contract I’m fine with losing that money it’s not worth it especially since he’s filing bankruptcy. The auction is coming up soon. I would like to know how much time I have (if any) after the auction?
It varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and can vary from one situation from another. Simply put it is a false statement that hurts a person's reputation. You are allowed to express an opinion and you are allowed to state facts - everything else is a grey area. Yes, you can be sued even if what...Read more »
