Maintenance Company’s Negligence Nearly Amputates Homeowner’s Arm

$615,000

Litigation Type - Other Accidents

Client Injury - Severe Arm Injuries

When a lawn maintenance company decides to undertake doing work on a pool system, the results can be catastrophic.  A company was hired by the homeowner to blow out his lawn sprinkler lines.  After that was done, they then hooked up a powerful air compressor to the pool filtration system.  Shortly after the air was turned on, the pool filter exploded like a bomb and nearly amputated the homeowner’s arm.  

The homeowner hired Matt Steinbrink to pursue his injury claims.  There were multiple claims made against multiple entities.  After a lengthy litigation with a lot of finger pointing as to who was responsible, Matt was able to settle with all the responsible parties getting the homeowner a settlement of $615,000, plus a separate confidential settlement.

Injuries are difficult in many ways. Physically speaking, they are burdensome and debilitating. On the mental/emotional level, they are traumatizing and labor intensive. Before having my case transferred to SiebenCarey and the legal team of Matthew Steinbrink, I was ready to give up. From our very first point of contact, I knew I was in good hands. Matt and the team were extremely empathetic and receptive to my concerns, and I was constantly reassured that I would be at the forefront of all decisions being made. This level of respect and transparency would remain a constant for the rest of my case. I am forever indebted to Matt and his extraordinary team of professionals. Thank you for fighting this fight with me.

The process seemed to take more time than I anticipated and especially long delays with the Covid, no fault of your office or my attorney Matt Steinbrink. Matt and his staff were excellent. My case was emotional for me since my accident occurred when we were in route to the bedside of our dying son. Matt was kind and very sensitive to my situation as was his staff, in particular Rachel who I dealt with this past many months. I felt time was taken to prepare me for all that was to take place including the deposition and follow up on each step. I appreciated how professionally my case was addressed. I would recommend Matt Steinbrink to others and use his expertise if I ever have a future need!

Fine Representation

Trust your insurance liability, property, and health coverage all you like, but be prepared to prove the value you've already paid in premiums and play games, or find experience and sound advice in legal representation.

Having experienced a distracted driver in a head-on accident, we were too predisposed with our own incapacitating injuries to negotiate the matters of insurance, or our best interests. We reached out to the SiebenCarey firm, based on its reputation, and John and Shannon Carey, and Matt Steinbrink offered their representation and expertise to dispute and clarify the nature of vehicle and health insurance not only for us, but also to the insurers, who were eager to secure financial interests in place of our good-faith investment...otherwise known as “premiums”.

To any who need similar legal aid -- wisdom is seeking the counsel of experts in their field before you're in a position where both your health and finances are compromised, and your innocence questioned by other parties who wish the appearance of your guilt for their benefit.

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.
