The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics recently settled two cases that will cost the UI and the state $325,000.

Merlyn Law of Clinton, Iowa, sued the UI for alleged negligence in post-surgery complications. He is to be paid $175,000. The UI physicians are expected to pay one-third of the settlement, and the rest is to be paid by the state.

The second case concerns alleged injuries suffered as a result of a negligent wheelchair-seating evaluation. Dennis Herman, the guardian of Melissa Herman, who was allegedly injured, is to be paid $150,000. That state will cover the entire costs of this settlement.
