Army Master Sergeant Injured in Collision Between Two Planes

$220,000

Litigation Type - Other Accidents

Client Injury - Back and Leg Injuries

Our client was a passenger on a flight from Minneapolis/St Paul to San Antonio, Texas. As the Airbus was backing away from the gate, it was hit by a DC-9; the collision occurred when the hydraulic system on the DC-9 failed and the airplane lost steering and braking ability. The two planes were evacuated and at least 11 people were injured. Our client, a successful soldier in the U.S. Army, injured his leg and back and received a medical discharge as a result of the injuries he received in this accident. His promising military career was cut short and he was able only to earn a much lower income than he had in the Army. He lost other military benefits for himself and his family and his physical limitations prevent him from living the lifestyle he had worked so hard to attain.

Harry Sieben settled his claim at mediation for $220,000.

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.
