Our Areas of Practice

Our Areas of Practice

Our range of services are listed below. We are skilled and unintimidated when fighting for your justice, recovery and compensation– and look forward to the opportunity to advocate on your behalf.

Car Accidents

An ordinary day can turn into a life-changing moment for any driver in the blink of an eye. Injuries from a car accident can range from immediate to gradual, spanning months before your symptoms make themselves known.

Truck Accidents

The sheer magnitude of a truck poses a risk to drivers on all road types, and we trust in various institutions – from government to logistics – to ensure that all contracted drivers and their trucks are in suitable condition to operate.

Southeast Iowa experiences high volumes of interstate drivers. Any collision or accident with an 18-wheeler or other type of truck has, more likely than not, devastating consequences for the victim. If you’ve been in an accident with a truck, you must take every opportunity to document your experience and get evaluated by appropriate medical professionals in case of immedate or late-onset injuries.

Unsafe truck driving conditions include:

  • Corporate or financial pressures
  • Poor vehicle maintenance
  • Time constraints for perishable goods or livestock
  • Sleep deprivation

Motorcycle Accidents

As a motorcyclist, negligent automobile drivers pose a large risk to your safety while sharing the road. Has the negligence of a car driver caused you harm in an accident? We’re versed in your circumstances and are ready to fight for your recovery and full compensation.

Dog Bites

In Iowa, the law states that a dog is only as good as the training, discipline and care it receives from its owners. In kind, an aggressive dog who bites is a liability to its owners, even if it’s the first time.

IOWA Code 351.28
Dog owners are liable for all injuries and damages that their dog causes.

Premises Liability

Laws and policies uphold your right to safety and peace of mind in almost every dwelling in southeast Iowa. Have you injured yourself due to the negligence of a property owner? In most cases this answer is yes. Danny Cornell and his team assess cases in the community free of charge. Once retained, the Cornell Injury Law team will work tirelessly to ensure you receive full justice for your injury as well as the effect it had on your quality of life.

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one due to the negligence or recklessness of another party is the ultimately devastating form of personal injury. Although they have passed, this doesn’t mean you cannot find justice in the eyes of the law. Together we will advocate in honour of your lost loved one in an effort to make peace with the loss, pain and suffering. Insurance companies do not want to face Danny and the Cornell Injury Law team, because we are known, furious fighters who stop at nothing to achieve the justice your family deserves.

Medical Malpractice

At times, the Hippocratic oath is broken in medicine, causing harm to a doctor’s patient. Various pressures and interests that must, by law, come after a physician’s dedication to their patient’s health and safety, may be prioritized. We hope not to disparage your view of healthcare, but this is a character flaw no human is immune to. If you have fallen victim to medical malpractice, you rightly deserve compensation in order to restore your health and dignity, as well as the standards that keep our community healthy and happy.

Nursing Home Abuse

Did the decision to place your loved one into a care facility go wrong? Nursing home abuse is deplorable although its not uncommon. Do not hesitate to protect your vulnerable loved one. At Cornell Injury Law, we will ensure that your loved one remains in dignity, investigating every and any instance that may have contributed to their mistreatment. You can rely on us to restore justice to the highest degree possible.

Social Security Disability

The disabled are legally entitled to their social security. If you’re disabled, that right extends to you. Almost 65% of social security disability claims are rejected in its first attempt, so we make it our duty as your attorney to ensure your claim is comprehensive, so you get it sooner.

Criminal Defense

The average person doesn’t know all laws, or remain conscious of whether or not they are upholding that law in many cases. Law enforcement holds our community to a standard that at times feels impossible. If you’ve been accused, arrested or charged wrongly, we are here to help.
