Injured In A Car Accident? Let Us Help You!


If you have been in a car accident and are having surgery, the first thing you need to do is talk with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Finding the right lawyer is one phone call away. Over the past thirty-nine years we have filed or settled thousands of claim and lawsuits. We file suit in order to get you the award you deserve.


PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. We are not a volume law firm with lawyers who take on just any case, but never have the time to speak with our clients. We take cases where there are serious personal injuries, which usually involves surgery. (Broken bones, some sort of surgery, a spinal cord injury including ruptured discs, brain damage, quadriplegia, paraplegia, burns, blindness, deafness, loss of an arm, a leg or an eye or hearing.) This firm is selective about what cases it takes. We are not after volume. We are about doing serious work for serious clients.


Filing A Claim After A Car Accident


If you have insurance coverage, first place your own insurance company on notice of the accident by calling your agent; most insurance companies have a toll-free number to report an accident. Call a knowledgeable car accident attorney. But before you provide a recorded statement hire us.


Injured In A Car Accident


Here at the Lombardi Law Firm we are dedicated to working with you to ensure the other driver’s insurance company, doesn’t attempt to strong-arm you into settling for less than what your injuries are worth after blaming you. We understand how insurance adjusters think and work when it comes to car accidents, and frankly, we know their goal is to pay you the least amount of money for your personal injury claim.


  • The attorneys of the Lombardi Law Firm are able to assist you with all of the following involving your case and more:
  • Photographs to show the damage to the vehicles.
  • Photographs of the cars, trucks or motorcycles involved
  • Photographs of the location of the collision.
  • Photographs and measurements of any skid marks or scuffs on the road's surface.
  • Photographs and measurements of anything that obstructed your vision along the roadway.
  • Towing bill.
  • Damage repair estimate with details of what was damaged or the total loss report. If the car, truck or motorcycle was a total loss then a photograph of it's condition just previous to the collision and the odometer reading.
  • You may need the bill of sale when you purchased the car, truck or motorcycle.
  • Car rental receipt or invoice if you had to lease a car while yours was getting repaired.
  • The police officer’s report of the accident; investigating officer's report.
  • Medical records from the medical service providers that show your conditions, diagnoses, prognoses, tests and other treatments.
  • Medical bills for all expenses for which you will make a claim.
  • Wage loss statement from your supervisor.
  • Medical reports indicating whether you have permanent impairment.
  • Doctor's slip saying you had to miss work.
  • Witness names and contact information.

Injured In A Truck Accident? Let Us Help You!


Finding room for tractor trailers and passenger vehicles to share the road is difficult and often dangerous. A total of 4,136 people died in large truck crashes in 2018. Sixteen percent of these deaths were truck occupants, 67 percent were occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles, and 15 percent were pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists. Some crashes involved both a tractor-trailer and a single-unit truck.


Although all vehicles on the road must obey the same rules, truck drivers face several significant disadvantages: wider turn radiuses, larger blind spots and slower acceleration times. Truck drivers also face problems with fatigue, grueling delivery schedules, overloaded shipments, the potential for a heavy load to become unbalanced, and other drivers’ impatience with tractor trailers on highways.


Trucks Cause Significant Accidents and Serious Injuries to Our Clients


Because of a tractor trailer’s size and weight, the potential for causing damage to everyone involved in a truck accident—especially those in a much-smaller car—is great. Personal injuries from a truck accident can be relatively common (bruising, lacerations, sprains, or fractures) or very severe (internal bleeding, damage to organs, whiplash, brain injury, spinal cord injury, loss of limb, or death). These injuries can certainly cause some long-lasting mental and physical trauma. Just as importantly, however, they can affect your relationships with your family and friends, especially as you face the added burden of financial concerns, insurance claims, lost pay, and potentially life-long medical problems.


Truck Accidents Are Expensive. Your Insurance Probably Won’t Be Enough


Bigger than what our clients drive. A lot heavier than what our clients drive. And trucks do not stop as fast or maneuver quicker than a car or pickup truck, the damage is tremendous.


That’s why it’s important to contact an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible after a crash or wreck. If you are injured in an accident involving a tractor trailer along the highways of central Iowa, Steve Lombardi and Katrina Phillip of the Lombardi Law Firm in Des Moines can help you handle these troubling times. With over 35 years of experience behind him, Steve is well-equipped to navigate the court system and fight the insurance companies that want to pay as little as possible on your claim. With Steve Lombardi and Katrina Philip on your side, you can rest assured we will fight for you and your right to be fully compensated.

Injured In A Motorcycle Accident? Let Us Help You!


Every year since 1981, this firm has handled motorcycle, bicycle and ATV accidents for Iowa clients. Injured people need us and we are here to help them. Every accident is different and requires a unique approach to maximizing the recovery.


We focus only on SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY CASES. Recently, one of our client's case settled for
$6.1 million. Well over 2,000 client cases have been favorably resolved and each involved a client who suffered an accident with serious personal injury. The more serious injury cases involve semi-trucks, high-speed collisions, bikes, ATVs, mopeds and motorcycles.


Serious Personal Injury Cases - Quadriplegia & Paraplegia


Motorcycle, ATV and bicycle collisions are different than car and truck accidents. They can be unique accidents in several ways. Because it is a motorcycle, bike or ATV, everyone wants to blame the rider and driver, but especially the rider - but not the car driver. Damages can be catastrophic and often include broken bones, head trauma, traumatic brain injury, death, loss of limbs, loss of a limb and a whole lot of road rash. Most of these cases require several experts just to set up the liability portion of the case. Damage experts normally include trauma surgeons, emergency room doctors and orthopedic surgeons. We handle it all, just like we have done for the past thirty-five plus years. We focus on serious personal injury cases.


Serious Personal Injury Cases - Death Cases


Handling hospital bills and insurance claims is technical and requires knowledge of the right laws. Are you tired of not getting answers and feeling like you’re getting the run-a-round? Are you tired of bill collectors hounding you to pay the ambulance bill? Hospital bills? Doctor's bill?


If you are injured in a motorcycle, ATV or bicycle accident anywhere in Iowa, call Steve Lombardi or Katrina Phillip of the Lombardi Law Firm, attorneys with motorcycle accident experience. We can help you. With 35 plus years of experience in the courts, Steve is very knowledgeable about personal injury law and well equipped with the best way to approach the courts to get the result you will need. We focus on serious personal injury cases.


Serious Personal Injury Cases - Brain Injuries


In motorcycle, bike, and ATV crashes, injuries are common in the head and neck area. Broken necks can cause quadriplegia, lower level spine compression can cause paraplegia. And of course skull fractures can cause brain injuries lasting a lifetime. Many states have accordingly mandated helmet laws (think of them as being similar to safety belts in cars). Iowa does not mandate helmets, but permits riders to choose to wear or not wear a helmet. We focus on brain damage cases.

Serious Personal Injury Cases - Call Today


If you should find yourself involved in a motorcycle, moped, bike, or ATV accident in Iowa, don’t wait. In the state of Iowa, personal injury claims must be brought to court within two years.


Contact us online or call us directly at 515.222.1110 for your free consultation. It’s essential to have an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side to fight for your rights, to help you recoup lost pay, and to help you pay for the medical bills incurred by a potentially severe injury.

Were You Denied A life Insurance Claim?  Let Us Help You!


We assist beneficiaries, widows, widowers, children, estate administrators and executors in the recovery of life insurance benefits after a denial by the insurance company to pay.


We have recently successfully resolved a 598.20A Beneficiary revocation – life insurance, claim favorably for our client. This code section voids an ex-spouse’s beneficiary status following the entry of a divorce decree. There are way’s around this, but they are few and very specific.


In another case the client came to us thinking she had life insurance coverage, which was being denied, in the amount of $250,000. Due to our efforts her coverage was in excess of $950,000.


In a third case the widow’s husband who purchased life insurance through his employment was being denied due to the insurance company’s misunderstanding of the cause of death. We successfully obtained the full benefits and at the family amount, which the client was unaware it existed.


These are just a few of the cases we have successfully resolved for our clients.

If we can help you give us a call.
