The Iowas State Fair has come and gone for 2014 and we are right back to the practice of law and reporting on personal injury accidents all across our great state. Unfortunately some of us will never again visit the Iowa State Fair to enjoy the food and festivities the fair brings to our lives. We have three accidents to report on today and then it is right back to work and moving along those cases in which clients have hired us to assist them with resolving, either by settlement, mediation or a trial. So let us get right to it.
