Paul Downes Provides Future Security to Injured Child

$487,500

Litigation Type - Car Accidents

Client Injury - Multiple Facial Fractures

Our client was a 9 year old girl who was riding in a vehicle driven by her sister.  She lost control of the vehicle on a gravel road and the vehicle rolled over.  Our client was thrown from the vehicle.  She was airlifted from the scene to the hospital and was hospitalized for 8 days.  She received multiple fractures to her face, jaw, mouth, ribs and arm.  She underwent 3 separate surgical procedures and her doctors predict she will require future surgery.  She also has extensive scarring that will require plastic surgery.  Her medical bills exceeded $146,000.

Paul Downes convinced the health insurance carrier to waive their subrogation claims for the medical bills and settled the case for $487,500; a settlement that was invested as an annuity that will total $818,440 at final payout.

We had a great experience working with SiebenCarey. We were initially recommended to their office through a family member. We worked with Paul Downes for our settlement case for a work related injury for a period of 3 years and he was extremely friendly and went out of his way to make phone calls, meetings, etc easy for us based on our work and family schedule. He was very knowledgeable and we trusted him to represent us well, which he did. We are happy to be completed with our settlement process but would recommend the company and Paul to anyone that would be seeking legal assistance!

Professionalism, Responsiveness

I was out for the day on my birthday,  it was a beautiful sunny day . I fell in the parking lot and sustained several injures. I contacted SiebenCarey, I was surprised that they would come to my house for a consultation. Paul Downs was my attorney, and I could not have been more pleased because he made me feel more relaxed and at ease about my accident. I have never had a situation like this in my life, and Paul worked very hard to obtain a settlement. I would highly recommend SiebenCarey and their associates, they kept me informed, whether by phone, mail . If i ever had a question they were there for me. Thanks Paul

In June of 2013 I was enjoying a ride on my vintage motorcycle, and was severely injured by an inattentive motorist, sending me to the hospital, physical therapy, and amassing a considerable amount of debt.

Fortunately I made contact with Robert Hauer, and Paul Downes with SiebenCarey!
Paul walked me through the entire process, explaining in layman's terms as to what to expect, and he continued to keep me informed as each step was reached.

Ultimately we used mediation to reach a settlement that allowed me to pay off my outstanding bills, and to bank an amount that gave me some peace of mind.
If by some unfortunate incident you ever have need for the services of a personal injury attorney, I highly recommend SiebenCarey... Thanks Paul!

It was a good experience, it took a long time to settle but good to have an experienced attorney in my corner.

I had a very positive experience with Paul Downes. He took the time to explain the process, each step of the way, and what we could expect. No surprises. A pleasant experience.

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.
