Ron's Story – "Above and beyond"

During the early morning hours of a dark, rainy and foggy October day, I was driving to work with a friend when we came upon some headlights that appeared to be in our lane of travel. Unbeknownst to us, a garbage truck had pulled into the wrong lane and was facing toward us. I realized this vehicle was in our lane as I became blinded by the headlights. In an effort to avoid the vehicle, I veered off the road to the right, drove into the ditch and struck a telephone pole. My friend and I got out of the vehicle to inspect the damage to the car and found it to be minimal. A second vehicle which had been distantly following me also then became blinded by the headlights of the garbage truck. The driver of this vehicle also swerved to the right, drove into the ditch and struck me as I was getting back into my vehicle.

I was trapped under my vehicle until the fire department responded to the scene and was able to extricate me. The ambulance crew noticed the amputation of my left foot and an open fracture to my right leg. I spent over two months at Regions Hospital and more than 3 months in therapy at the Courage Center. I suffered significant injuries from the accident, including amputation of both my legs and paralysis below my mid-chest area. Jim Carey settled my claims against the sanitation company, their insurer, the other driver's insurer as well as my underinsured motorist coverage.

My sons hired Jim while I was still in an induced coma. One of their cousins told them that SiebenCarey was a great firm to choose for personal injury. I believe I first met Jim when he came to visit me at Regions Hospital. My first impression was that he was very honest and would do the best he possibly could for me. He did exactly that.

There were a lot of times when Jim even went over and above his best for me like when he negotiated with my health insurance company so I didn't have to repay the full amount and just making sure I was comfortable at all times. He was always one step ahead with everything. When I had questions, Jim and his staff explained things to me so that I understood them. They would always call or contact me with any little change and kept me informed of everything that was happening on my case.

I also had a chance to work with Harry Sieben of the firm when he attended my deposition due to Jim being unavailable as a result of his medical condition at that time. Harry made me feel just as comfortable as Jim and his staff did. If someone I knew was involved in an accident, I would tell them SiebenCarey is the one you want on your team if you want a law firm that cares.

After suffering a life changing traumatic brain injury, Jim Carey and his staff made my recovery process so much easier. They guided me through all of my medical treatment and mediation and made me feel supported the entire time. Even though COVID-19 put a spin on things and process changes, everything was so smooth. I would recommend this team any day!

Jim Carey is down-to-earth, understanding, compassionate, extremely focused and downright brilliant in his skillful and highly successful resolution to my serious injuries resulting from a car accident. I can't say enough about how grateful I am and how pleased I am with his representation and the service from his entire team. Thank you.

I have practiced law for over 30 years but not in the area of Personal Injury. When it comes to Personal Injury law I refer my family, clients and clients family to SiebenCarey. All of the referrals praise the handling of their case and the results - start to finish. In my humble view SiebenCarey are the best in the state.

I was referred to SiebenCarey by a friend after I was involved in a bicycle accident. Jim Carey represented me and throughout the process I was never anxious about the case because he and his team were in constant communication. I knew where we stood and the course of action we were taking which gave me peace of mind throughout my recovery. Everyone I encountered at SiebenCarey from the first phone call until the final resolution treated my case as if it were top priority and they did so respectfully, professionally, and achieved results beyond my expectations. It was a pleasurable experience during a difficult time.

Aaron Lundgren

When I needed help, after an auto accident,  I was unsure who to turn to. A family friend has suggested SiebenCarey to because of their prior experience.

I will tell you this, there is no one else I would recommend after the excellent service I was given.

They stayed on top of everything, they kept me in the loop, most of all they gave me piece of mind. I felt confident that there was nothing to worry about with such fantastic people on my side.

A big thank you to the folks at SiebenCarey!

My wife and I were involved in a car accident on October 4, 2018 when a driver approaching us decided to make a U turn and hit us. My wife spent nine days in the ICU with 10 broken or fractured ribs and multiple other injuries, and I had a broked rib and lacerations from my seat belt. The car was totaled.

We contacted SiebenCarey on the advice of a lawyer friend who we asked, “Who is the best injury lawyer in the Twin Cities”? We were interviewed within hours and the wheels were put in motion for medical benefits and recovery of our property and damages. We were advised that a complete settlement could take over a year, but our bills were paid and a settlement reached in less than 8 months. 
 
 Jim Carey called us several times during this period of time to update us on the progress of our claims. We are very happy and satisfied with the way we were treated and the results of our claim.

My wife and daughter were killed in a vehicular incident.  I was referred by a good friend to SiebenCarey . Jim Carey personally handled my situation. The compassion, professionalism, and competence was beyond excellent.  In a most difficult  time for my son and me the help we received was immeasurable and in fact, helped our healing process.  I want to personally thank Jim and his team for their assistance.  I would recommend this organization unreservedly and totally to anyone who needs help in a tough time.

Dorothy Larson

I'm glad Jim and his staff were on my side after my accident in 2017. Everybody was so helpful and answered all of my questions. I had more than just the accident taking a toll on me at the time! I was still in the midst of having Chemo Therapy. Everyone was so kind to me and Jim was so helpful along with Rachel, Jayne, Lori, and Angela.

I also appreciated the fact that Jim called personally to let me know what was going on. Thanks to everyone and I would recommend Jim to anyone in need.

Randy Ridout

The team at SiebenCarey was extremely dedicated in helping me with my case. Jim and his staff were knowledgeable, caring , friendly, and sympathetic throughout the entire case. They are like family to me. I would highly recommend them.

Barbara Heinzen

On November 17, 2017 I was involved in a car accident with a friend. A young man ran a red light. Both of us were ambulanced to the nearest hospital. With in three hours I had a friend call Jim Carey's office because they had used them . I had someone by my bedside the very next morning, and Jim Carey and his staff took such good care of me. They really did take the worry off my shoulders. Bottom line, it took about a year and a half and they were with me the entire time... Jim and his staff Angela, Jayne, and Lori, were all amazing. Got back to me fast, answered my questions so I could understand, and Jim would call if I needed to ask him a question. I felt I was the most important client!! If you need someone who will show that they care, you will not go wrong with Jim Carey and his staff.

Roger and Merle Landro

We wanted to thank you so much for all that you did for us. This was a very difficult time in our life and you made it possible for us to get through it with a good outcome! Angela and Jane were also so good and helpful to us. We will never forget everything your firm did to be there for us. Life can have some difficult times, but people like you make it possible to have better days! - Roger & Merle Landro

Steph Mackey

I was injured in a car accident and I was becoming more and more stressed dealing with the insurance companies and their requests. Jim Carey took my case and told me to concentrate on healing and he would take care of the rest. What a weight off my shoulders! I would highly recommend Jim and his competent paralegal team.

Christine Butina

Jim Carey and his staff were excellent at their jobs. They were very understanding and were always available if you had questions on something with my case. They treated you as if you were their only client that they had. I would definitely recommend sending anyone to SiebenCarey because they really do care about you.

Geoff Anthony

I started working with Jim from SiebenCarey after my wife and I were in a car accident a few years ago. We were referred to them by someone in the area and we are so grateful we worked with the firm. Jim and his team were very caring and very responsive to all needs and questions. He made sure that all of our medical bills and expenses from the accident were paid and took care of all of the questions and needs from insurance companies and medical facilities. It was so nice to have someone who was on our side. I would highly recommend working with Jim!

Heather Beal

When someone asks me to refer them to a personal injury lawyer, I immediately give them Jim Carey’s name and contact information at SiebenCarey in Minneapolis. Jim is more than a top-rated, expert personal injury attorney, he is an empathetic and compassionate listener. He sees people, not simply case files. He has represented my friends well by sincerely caring about the immediate and lasting effects that injuries from car accidents, negligence or other circumstances have had on their lives.

Maggie Healy

Having known Jim my entire life as a good family friend, I’ve always admired his ability to make others feel welcomed and excepted in any setting. This is why I didn’t hesitate to chose Jim and SiebenCarey when I needed a personal injury lawyer. He proved to be extremely thorough and professional and he made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I’m only 18 years old so much of the legal process was new to me but Jim was very patient and I felt that he was there with me every step of the way. It’s clear that Jim truly cares about his clients and after my experience with Jim and the whole firm I now understand why SiebenCarey is so widely respected.

Katie McGuire

Jim was very helpful and made the whole process much easier to manage. I’m grateful for all of the help from him and his team.

Lisa Gariepy

The entire Minneapolis team that worked with me was amazing.  Always proactive in sharing what to expect and taking time to explain things.  In a stressful, unfamiliar informed and supported. Wonderful group!

Julie Larson

Such a great experience - Angela and Jim were beyond easy to work with - always helpful and friendly, no matter how many times we asked the same question. Very quick to get back to a message or email - would highly recommend this firm.

Sharon Jensen

Jim Carey and his staff were great. Returned calls promptly and answered any and all questions in layman's terms for me. Exceeded my expectations. I've already told family and friends that if any of them should need personal injury representation to contact SiebenCarey. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if necessary.

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.

Eric Petoletti

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.

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.
