Semi-truck Rolls Through Stop Sign & Causes Accident

$705,000

Litigation Type - Semi Truck Accidents

Client Injury - Head Injury, Neck Injury

Our client was a passenger in a pickup truck that was hit by a Peterbilt truck at an intersection. The truck had come to a rolling stop for the stop sign and was traveling 5-10 mph into the intersection. The pickup our client was riding in was speeding and the driver did not have time to react to avoid the collision and ran directly into the side of the semi truck. Rescue personnel used the "jaws of life" to remove the roof of the truck to access our client. He was taken by helicopter to North Memorial Hospital due to his serious injuries. He suffered head injuries, femur fracture, collarbone fracture, multiple rib fractures that punctured his lung, foot and toe fractures, a bruised liver and a laceration to his leg that required staples.

Our client spent one month in the intensive care unit and continues to suffer physical injuries as well as brain damage from the accident.

Harry Sieben filed suit against the trucking company as did the driver of the pick up for his injuries. Our client received $625,000 of the $1 million coverage because his injuries were so severe. Sieben also sued the pick up driver for his negligence contributing to the accident and received an $80,000 settlement from his insurance company.

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.
