Iowa Settles Settlement Claims Totaling $325,000

Iowa’s appeal board approved the payment for several personal injury settlements totaling $325,000.

The claims paid for partially by the state include:

  • $175,000 paid to Clinton resident Merlyn Law, who filed a personal injury lawsuit in 2011 against the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics alleging negligence after surgery
  • $150,000 paid to Melissa Marie Herman’s guardian, Dennis Lee Herman, after a lawsuit was filed claiming Melissa’s wheelchair was not properly evaluated by the state hospital, resulting in her injury
  • $900 paid to Daniel Ritter after he claimed that negligence on the part of the state caused their State Fair tent to collapse onto his car
  • And $500 paid to Eleanora Anderson, who claimed she was assaulted by state prison officers during the time she spent at the Iowa Correctional Institute for Women
