Teenager Shot While Hunting

$400,000

Litigation Type - Other Accidents

Client Injury - Foot and Ankle Injuries

Our client was 18 years old and went hunting with a friend in northern Minnesota. While walking through the woods, the friend shot our client with a .20 gauge shot gun in the left lower extremity, causing a severe wound to the foot and ankle that ultimately required multiple surgeries. The friend claimed the weapon accidentally discharged, but through the use of ballistics experts and firearm safety experts, Jeffrey Montpetit proved that the friend used the weapon improperly and not according to accepted safe hunting standards.

The case settled prior to trial for $400,000.

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.
