Intoxicated Wedding Guest Drives Into a Tree, $610,000 Settlement

$610,000

Litigation Type - Drunk Driving Accidents

Client Injury - Hip and back

Our client suffered serious injury to his femur, hip and back after the car he was riding in smashed into a tree. Our client was a passenger in the vehicle and they had been attending a wedding. The driver was tested by law enforcement and found to have a blood alcohol level of .14.

Our client fought hard during his recovery to regain his position in the North Dakota oil fields and resume the arduous work of a heavy oil rig operator. His lawsuit required Jeffrey Sieben and his staff to navigate both Minnesota and North Dakota courts. By analyzing both Minnesota and North Dakota laws, Sieben was able to maximize the recovery for his client. The claim was resolved for $610,000 against the at fault parties.

Sheryl Nixon

Jeff Sieben was the first one I talked to about my injury. I was not sure if there was even a case. But as the months went by and my pain got worse, the seriousness of the injury became apparent. Jeff took on the case and put me at ease about the medical bills and calls. He was professional in his attitude while being compassionate to my situation. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so. 

Stephanie Dickinson
Jeff helped me and my daughter after 3 of my daughters were in a car accident. It was a long process but Jeff was always there when I had questions and kept my daughter's file updated as her permanent injuries came more apparent. Very nice guy and typically lawyers are not very nice! I will always go back to him for any personal injury cases! Definitely recommend him to everyone!
Brian Carlson

Jeff Sieben did an outstanding job of making sure all avenues were available for settlement funds were explored. I was quite satisfied with the results.

I was left in a very tough position. I was denied everything from an insurer after a terrible automobile accident. After contacting SiebenCarey not only did they give me hope, they won for me on every level. Very professional and completely respected by me and my family on every level.

In need of a personal injury attorney? Well you're if you're reading this you're in the right place. You'd be hard pressed to find more competent attorneys than the ones here at SiebenCarey.

They took my case to trial and an amazing job presenting the facts and fighting for my best interests! Three years ago I was unsure of what my future would bring; now that it's over I can rest a bit easier. With SiebenCarey as my counsel, I believe I had the absolute BEST representation a person could've asked for. I knew that I wanted the absolute best representation when searching for an attorney to handle my case and I most definitely received it.

If you need a personal injury attorney, look no further. Can't recommend highly enough.

Daniel Ball

Really good professionals, they solved my issues in no time using the most impressive and advanced approach. Really good, highly recommended.

Even though I was states away and could only talk on the phone, they listened and did everything that they could to win my case. I felt like I was a part of the family.

Morgan Petoletti

My husband had an amazing experience with this firm. They listened and took the time to understand our case.

Carly R.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
