Joshua's Story – "I'm back in training"

A few years ago a car hit me while I was riding my bike. I was training for a triathlon and was in the best shape of my life, when a guy blew through a stop sign and hit me. I was thrown to the ground and split my head open. I was rushed to the hospital where I got staples in my head and was treated for a concussion.

After two or three months I started feeling an increasing amount of pain in my shoulder and it was not going away. This was something I had never experienced any problems with, so I decided to contact the driver who hit me. After speaking to his wife, I realized I would need an attorney.

I got online and looked around for an attorney, I even prayed about the decision. I decided on SiebenCarey and immediately hit it off with Jeff. I spoke with him and let him know what had happened and he got right on it. He got the insurance information and set me up with a really good doctor and I started physical therapy. I eventually had to have surgery on the arm but it still causes me pain.

Jeff supported my decisions and was honest right from the start. He said "we're going to take this all the way to the end if that's what you want to do, "and that meant something. He wanted me to walk away from the deal feeling as good as I could about the outcome and that's important. 

Although he was my legal representation, I felt like Jeff was as much a friend as he was anything else. When you have something like this go on in your life, you know trust is going to be the number one thing. You've got to really trust the person that's going to be taking care of this stuff for you and I really did trust Jeff.

Now, three years later I'm back in shape and competing in a triathlon this summer. Jeff helped me get through a really hard time and back to where I want to be.

I was involved in a car accident that was complicated at best. God blessed with me Eric Beyer as my attorney. Although it was a long drawn out process between the two insurance companies, Eric was not only my attorney, he was my rock.

Eric is one of the most ethical people I have ever met in my lifetime. He was a constant source of not only information, but of comfort throughout the whole process. I never doubted for one moment that Eric did not have my best interest at heart. He took every word I said seriously and did what he had to do. If I ever have the misfortune of another injury like this, I would go to no one other than Eric Beyer. I will never in my lifetime be able to thank Eric enough or let him know how much I respect him and what a comfort he was and has continued to be for me. God Bless you Eric Beyer.

Eric W. Beyer helped me through a very difficult time and his professionalism, advice and results from an injury were highly respected. Amidst the personal part of getting myself back to health, his guidance when life was blurry was so appreciated. He listened and then put forth my options honestly and directly which I totally appreciated!

 Was totally satisfied with his hard work and dedication to help me. I'd highly recommend him. Thank you Eric!

Eric Beyer is the best!!! Definitely above a five star rating.

Teresa Theobald

I cannot express how happy my family is with Mr. Beyer!  He has impressed us in too many ways to count!  As educated people, we attempted to accomplish litigation on our own...BIG mistake!  Mr. Beyer and his staff are amazing!  Litigation is their wheelhouse.  If you are wondering if you should hire them; the answer is yes.

Greg Peterson

Top Class lawyers. Care about their people.

Mike and Carol Anderson

Five stars to Eric and Rita!! After filing a work comp claim, being denied, and told from a medical professional that I had waited to long to file the claim I was feeling hopeless. I decided to meet with Eric and was informed about the Gillette law. I am so grateful to Eric for his knowledge, experience, guidance and compassion. Thank you to Rita for your calls, emails and for keeping me updated and informed!

Eric Beyer was such a huge help for my husband and I after a horrible accident! He is very knowledgeable and professional! Thank you!

Sabrina Stauffer

Eric Beyer made what felt like a difficult process, very simple. If I didn’t have Eric’s help, I don’t know how I could’ve gotten the wage loss benefits due to me from my insurance company, because it was so slow in coming to me. Lots of runaround.

The security of having an attorney in your corner is powerful! Especially when the person  at fault for hitting me, that insurance company was calling me daily to check on me and “how are you doing?”  Their trick is to get you to say that you’re fine, but you don’t know how you are doing until at least a week after the crash. It takes time for the adrenaline to calm down before you realize how deeply hurt you really are. And by the time you could’ve told the insurance company multiple times that “I’m  fine” and the truth is - you’re not.

My advice is to get Eric immediately after an injury, and not to talk to the opposing insurance company (if it’s a car crash), and to document everything. Eric doesn’t charge you any money up front! But if you don’t get an attorney, it can cost you plenty in the end. Insurance companies are skilled at not paying, don’t be one of their victims.

Casidy Van Puymbrouck

Car accidents are scary, especially when your injury does not go away. I was lost and in need of help. Mr. Beyer took me in and got to the bottom of the problem. When it was all said and done the accident did not cost me anything and I recieved something for the pain and suffering!

Jesse Bukal

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.

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.
