• Auto Accidents

Fast Answers from Our Auto Accident Attorneys...

You want answers after an auto, truck, motorcycle or other road accident. How do all the medical bills get paid? What about the wages you lost? And what happens if you can’t go back to work? Will you have what you need to get back the future that was yours right up to the split second before the accident? And then there are the people that depend on you. What happens to them?

Our Award-Winning Attorneys and Experienced Legal Team Will Give You the Answers ... and a Lot More

 

The Insurance Company Is Already Protecting Its Interests – Time to Protect Yours

You have every right to get answers to these questions and be compensated for the careless actions of others. But as you have already discovered, the insurance companies don’t always make it easy. First of all, you need to hack your way through a maze of red tape just to apply for your own Minnesota no-fault coverage. Then it seems no one wants to talk about what happens if your losses exceed your policy limits, or if the other driver was uninsured or underinsured, or if you are permanently injured, or if your claim is denied.

No, they would rather you didn’t ask those questions because delay means you might go away. The last thing they want is a letter from SiebenCarey's, Minnesota’s original personal injury law firm. Because then they’ll know that you are now protected by the law firm described by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best in America.

First we’ll get your questions answered, then we’ll ask the ones you wouldn’t think to ask. In addition to your mental and emotional anguish, we’ll make sure they are well aware of any other inconveniences and financial hardship you might have suffered, including:

  • Lost wages when injuries prevent you from working
  • Overwhelming health care expenses
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Car damage and loss of reliable transportation

Take Control and Relieve the Stress Now

When you call SiebenCarey's about your car accident case, you’ll feel a huge weight lifted from your shoulders. First off, your call will be answered by a real person rather than an automated answering system. You’ve had enough runaround already trying to get through to your insurance company.

Then we’ll start answering your questions by connecting you with one of our Know Your Rights attorneys, recognized for excellence in handling any type of road accident: auto, truck, SUV, motorcycle, drunk driver, hit-and-run, bike-car and pedestrian.

Your attorney will gather critical information about your injury and the circumstances of your case by attentively listening to you. Then he or she will walk you through all your options. You’ll get an honest appraisal of your chances for success if you decide to move ahead – realistic advice rather than pie-in-the-sky promises just to get you to sign a retainer.

Trusted by People Who Have Been There

We get it: choosing an auto accident attorney isn’t easy, especially when you know how important it is to make the right decision. Law firms (and their websites) all start looking the same if you’ve never hired an attorney before. But there are some important differences:

Referred by Clients, Friends, Family and Other Attorneys

The real test of quality legal representation is when someone who has already been injured in an auto accident is asked by friends or family to recommend a lawyer. Unlike firms that depend on hard-sell advertising for most of their clients, SiebenCarey is distinguished by a high rate of referrals from clients and past clients, friends and family, and other attorneys.

Award-Winning Attorneys Respected by Our Peers

Who better to ask about the legal skills of an attorney than another attorney! On that measure, several accident attorneys at SiebenCarey's have earned widespread recognition, including:

  • Best Lawyers in America, compiled through an exhaustive peer-review survey of other top lawyers throughout the United States
  • Super Lawyers and Rising Stars, a distinction granted to only 5 percent of Minnesota’s personal injury attorneys
  • Best Law Firms, U.S. News & World Report, based on rigorous review that includes client and lawyer evaluations

65-Year Tradition as Minnesota’s Original Personal Injury Law Firm

SiebenCarey's was founded in 1952 as the first law firm in Minnesota focused entirely on injured people. Since then, we’ve represented more than 65,000 injured people from Minnesota and Wisconsin.

From day one, a decision was made to represent working families and individuals deserving the same top-notch legal representation as the insurance companies and big business. That blue-collar tradition continues today with attorneys and staff that are ready to loosen the tie, roll up the sleeves and go to work fighting for your best interests.

 

Pack a Powerful Punch with a Full Legal Team on Your Side

By choosing an attorney from SiebenCarey's, you also get the support of an exceptional legal team. SiebenCarey's paralegals, legal assistants and investigators have 10, 20, 30 and even 40 years experience with the law firm.

They know the system inside and out, and are ready to guide you through the quagmire of details associated with any car, truck or motorcycle accident claim. Meanwhile, they’ll work hand-in-hand with your attorney, law enforcement, health care providers, expert witnesses and others to collect vital information in support of your case.

And no need to worry about being passed around to different departments at SiebenCarey's because you will work with the same attorney-staff team every step of the way. You’ll become part of a small family that truly cares about injured people and are passionate about making a difference in their lives … including yours!

Your “Know Your Rights” Advantages...

There are special advantages of working with the auto accident attorneys at SiebenCarey's. Here are a few reasons you should get in touch with one of our auto accident attorneys...

No Fee Unless YOU Get Compensation

Big companies can afford top lawyers and so can you! That’s because we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you are not charged for expenses or attorney fees unless you receive compensation.

So you can pursue your legal claim with the full resources of Minnesota’s original personal injury law firm without having to worry about writing a check up front. You’ll be on equal footing with the insurance company lawyers and the downtown law firms hired by major corporations at $250, $300, $350 or more per hour.

 

Don’t Forget, Time Is Working Against You

Every day that goes by after you auto accident makes it harder to pursue your case. Remember, the insurance companies know that, which is why they are trying so hard to get you to settle without legal representation.

Important evidence should be compiled before it is lost or otherwise compromised. Witnesses should be interviewed while events are still fresh in their minds. Photos should be taken. Notices and other important documents must be filed in a timely manner. And in certain circumstances, you may lose your right to file a claim and recover damages at all if you miss the statute of limitations.

Your best bet is to contact us as soon as possible after the accident. You’ll feel real peace of mind knowing you’ve done everything you can to protect your interests and those closest to you.

 

Why Take a Chance on Lawyers with Less Trial Experience?

Not all auto accident lawyers have the same experience or record of success in the courtroom as SiebenCarey's. That’s because we go to trial if the other side is not willing to provide you with all the compensation and benefits you deserve. Our “fight-for-you” philosophy is different than others who might only be interested in settling first to collect fees as soon as possible.

So why take a chance on a decision this important to your future? Request a FREE case evaluation and find out what a top personal injury law firm, lawyer and legal team can do for you. When the other side sees SiebenCarey's on the letterhead, they’ll be on notice that you are serious about protecting your rights in an auto accident case.

Daunne Schaller

I was seriously injured in a car accident on my wedding night and went to SiebenCarey. Being involved in an accident is never fun. The folks at SiebenCarey got us thru the event helping us get on with our lives. They were up front and honest. We knew we could trust them. It’s clear to me why Art has been recognized as a Best Lawyer in America and Super Lawyer for 12 years running. Now anytime I know someone who was involved in an accident I refer them to SiebenCarey.

Deb Colombe

I was involved in a car accident that was complicated at best. God blessed with me Eric Beyer as my attorney. Although it was a long drawn out process between the two insurance companies, Eric was not only my attorney, he was my rock.

Eric is one of the most ethical people I have ever met in my lifetime. He was a constant source of not only information, but of comfort throughout the whole process. I never doubted for one moment that Eric did not have my best interest at heart. He took every word I said seriously and did what he had to do. If I ever have the misfortune of another injury like this, I would go to no one other than Eric Beyer. I will never in my lifetime be able to thank Eric enough or let him know how much I respect him and what a comfort he was and has continued to be for me. God Bless you Eric Beyer.

Jesse Bukal

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.

Tony Rubin 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 Tony Rubin 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.

Chris and Amy Boys

We worked with Art and his team on a personal injury case. We could not have been more pleased with the result. Art and his team were both professional and personable, and were a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Art and his team if you find yourself in this type of situation.

Jeanne Tondryk

Eric W. Beyer helped me through a very difficult time and his professionalism, advice and results from an injury were highly respected. Amidst the personal part of getting myself back to health, his guidance when life was blurry was so appreciated. He listened and then put forth my options honestly and directly which I totally appreciated!

 was totally satisfied with his hard work and dedication to help me. I'd highly recommend him. Thank you Eric!

Lisa Gariepy

The entire Minneapolis team that worked with me was amazing.  Always proactive in sharing what to expect and taking time to explain things.  In a stressful, unfamiliar informed and supported. Wonderful group!

Matthew Newman

As a disability lawyer, I have opportunities to work with and recommend Personal Injury Firms, and SiebenCarey (and Art in particular) is one of the firms and lawyers I have at the top of my referral list. My ex-wife was injured in an auto accident, and I sent her to Art, who did his usual excellent and professional job in helping her recover what she was owed. I've also had occasion to work on a large, complex case with Art that spilled over into my specialty. We produced an outstanding result for our client. I was particularly impressed by the fact that he and his firm never hesitated to bring in and pay for outside expert resources that maximized our chances to win the case. Not every firm has the mindset or wherewithal to do that.

Cheryl Nelson
Jim Carey is down-to-earth, understanding, compassionate, extremely focused and downright brilliant in his skillful and highly successful resolution to my serious injuries resulting from a car accident. I can't say enough about how grateful I am and how pleased I am with his representation and the service from his entire team. Thank you.
Melissa Snorek
Art and his team did a fantastic job for me. I had no idea what to expect but he made the process simple and worry free for me and got me a great settlement in way less time than I ever could have anticipated. Thank you Art!
James Graff

Art and the staff were wonderful to work with. They kept us informed with the case and would highly recommend Art and staff.

Brenda Moore-Hernandez

Last year my daughter was killed in a car accident. She was a single mother taking care of two young children. I hired Art at the SiebenCarey Lakeville office. It was the best thing I ever did. Art has helped me through what has been the most difficult time in my life. Art and his staff have treated me more like a friend than a client. I would strongly encourage you to call Art at SiebenCarey Lakeville if you are ever so unfortunate as to need an attorney.

Bill Wendlandt

Art uncomplicated the entire process. It was a real eye-opener. The outcome was a great success.

James Beadell
Jeff Sieben was very good at communicating with me whether it was email or phone calls.
Darren Ness
Very professional and courteous staff with a drive to make you comfortable in every aspect of their service.
Bryce Rippentrop

All around great experience working with Art and his team, couldn't have asked for a better outcome!

Martin Leet
Shannon Carey effectively managed the litigation. It is evident that she is experienced, knowledgeable, and skilled in personal injury cases. She communicates in an understandable manner, and she listens to her client's ideas and concerns. I trusted her to successfully litigate this case, and she did so with exceptional care. She remained focused throughout the long process, never wavering from the objective. She is an exceptional attorney. I highly recommend her!
Joshua Rickert

Art and his Lakeville team have been a tremendous legal resource for our patients injured in motor vehicle accidents. Getting into an accident is terribly inconvenient; it can be very scary and overwhelming.. insurance companies, vehicle damage, loss wages, replacement services, medical bills and the list goes on .. sometimes the situation warrants a strong legal counsel to help navigate through that process.. Art can give you the peace of mind you need and deserve. They will work hard to make sure all bases are covered, all needs are met and will go the extra mile to make sure you are are treated fairly at the end of the day! Highly recommend.

Phil Manger
Awesome lawyers, awesome staff!!
Erika Beimert

I have been working with Art and his staff since 2013 when I was run over by a drunk driver. Everyone from Beverly who runs his front office and stays in constant contact with me just as much as he does to Lynn, another lawyer in the office who does just as much research on every case as Art does and fights along side to get the fairest settlements possible for the victims. The one thing that struck me from the beginning was that Art's firm was the only firm who sent his investigator to me. His investigator was amazing; kind, thorough and compassionate. Every time I wanted to give in and just "be done" with it all because I was just so tired of fighting, Art and his amazing team kept going; knowing and feeling the same frustration I was feeling. They are both professional and empathetic to their clients and made me feel as if I was the only client they had.;even though I knew they are very busy. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a personal injury law firm.

Natalie Kromschroeder

We were very blessed have their guidance for our case. Paul Schweiger and Lindsey are the best! We would absolutely use them again if needed.

Lora O'Hern
Mr. Carey and his staff were so professional  and helpful dealing with our accident. Their communication was excellent. Working with the SiebenCarey team was the only bright spot in our horrible accident experience. We always felt we were represented by extremely knowledgeable and caring people. We appreciate the outstanding service we received.
 
Ashlyn Wall

They were able to work with me while I was away for school and much appreciated the help. I would highly recommend them!

Carly R.

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.

Robert Pettit

Art and his staff helped me after I was involved in a bad car crash. I can't believe what an unbelievable job they did. First, they were always available when I needed them. I could call any time and they honestly kept me from getting anxiety attacks. When they told me the details of my settlement, I thought they were kidding. It was so beyond what I imagined possible. Based on my experience I would recommend Art and the SiebenCarey firm to anyone who has the misfortune of getting in an accident. They are the best!

William Borchardt

I've worked with Art on more than one occasion. One time for premise case and a second time for a car accident. The results were outstanding. Art and his staff are very friendly and made the whole process extremely easy. If you are ever injured I highly recommend you give Art a call at the Lakeville SiebenCarey office. You won't be disappointed.

Steve Erwin

I have referred several personal injury and wrongful death cases to Susan Holden for handling. Susan has been very professional in her approach to these cases and has obtained settlements on behalf of the clients. She also is very courteous, knowledgeable, and has a great "bedside manner" in dealing with her clients. Several clients have thanked me for referring their cases to Susan.

Robin Wilson

Attorney Kosieradzki is a man of intelligence, experience and integrity. I would whole-heartedly recommend his services to anyone.

Susan McIntosh

Art and his staff are extremely professional and easy to work with. Having a local attorney is very convenient. It is clear these folks have been doing this a long time. I highly recommend this firm!

St. Paul Local 12
Thanks for everything, your experience paid off BIG!!!
Scott Wilson

I've worked with Art Kosieradzki as co-counsel in a number of major personal injury and coverage cases, and I know his abilities. He is a top-flight trial lawyer and he has the results to prove it. At least two of his attributes may not be immediately apparent, however: First, he's creative and has achieved large recoveries where a lesser lawyer might have given up. Second, he cares and he has time for people. The latter is a precious quality in our hard-driven profession. Add to that an excellent and personable staff and the backing of the powerhouse SiebenCarey law firm, and what you have in Art is simply this: the right lawyer.

Cynthia Vermeulen

I have worked on cases with Sue Holden of Sieben Carey for over 20 years. As a trial attorney, I feel confident referring my clients with personal injury issues to Sue, as I know she and her team take the time to listen to their clients, explore and explain their options, monitor their recovery with compassion and persistently advocate for them in negotiations and in court. Sue has the utmost credibility in the legal community and an ability to resolve complex problems. She is highly respected by the courts as well as attorneys for her competence and steadfast dedication to helping injured people. I recommend working with Sue Holden and her team without reservation.

Tanya Miller

I have been working with Art for many years now, and have always been impressed by the care he gives his clients. Art and his staff are compassionate, dedicated people that I would trust with any personal injury crisis.

Align Chiropractic

I have had nothing but great service with these guys. They are very knowledgable on a wide variety of subjects and topic. They will help you with any case you need!
Sheryl Nixon

Jeff Sieben was the first one I talked to about my injury. I was not sure if there was even a case. But as the months went by and my pain got worse, the seriousness of the injury became apparent. Jeff took on the case and put me at ease about the medical bills and calls. He was professional in his attitude while being compassionate to my situation. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so. 

Daniel Ball
Really good professionals, they solved my issues in no time using the most impressive and advanced approach. Really good, highly recommended
Annalise Backstrom

I worked for Art at SiebenCarey for a few years while I was in college and it was a great experience. Art is always friendly and treats everyone with respect, including his clients. He is extremely intelligent and a fantastic attorney. I can confidently say that Art and his staff go above and beyond for their clients and work incredibly hard on all of their cases. They are passionate, trustworthy, and dedicated. If you're looking for representation in a personal injury matter, go see Art Kosieradzki with SiebenCarey - I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!

Jazz Smith

SiebenCarey is a professional and dedicated law organization that help accident victim.

Ryan Betzina

I have known Mr. Kosieradzki for several years and every patient who has ever consulted him for legal services has given him rave reviews. His level of communication with me and my patients is outstanding. For anyone needing legal advice on a personal injury matter we highly recommend him and his team!

Thai Vuong

I had the opportunity to work with Art and his staff. They were fabulous and I would definitely recommend them to family and friends. They helped me through my claim getting a result beyond my expectations.

Steve Miller

I've know Art Kosieradzki and the folks at SiebenCarey for nearly 30 years. When my mother-in-law needed an attorney after a roll-over accident, I sent her to SiebenCarey. They were compassionate and professional. I'd recommend them to anyone who wants a personal injury lawyer they can trust.

Sarah Peterson

It was a great experience working with Jim and his entire team! Always felt well taken care of and someone was always there to answer my many questions! Thanks!

Troy Rognrud

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!

Alyssa Mark

If you want a caring and skilled lawyer with integrity I highly recommend Art Kosieradzki. The thing that immediately struck me was that he seemed to genuinely care about me and my situation. I felt comfortable right away. He and his staff are great to work with; they are highly competent and knowledgeable. He helped me and my family greatly, and I can't thank him enough!

Kelli Bechtel

Finding a great personal injury attorney can make all the difference in the world on how your case turns out. I’ve known Art and his staff for years having had the opportunity to see what they can do. If something unfortunate happens and you want results, answers and the ability to feel comfortable with your representation, give them a call. I’m so glad I’ve had a chance to get to know them.

Roberta Jordan

My family was referred to Susan Holden at SiebenCarey by our hometown attorney in a wrongful death case.  She was very accommodating to us and very approachable. Staff was top notch and doggedly pursued two different insurance companies to accomplish an outcome far beyond anything we'd anticipated. We could not have gotten results close to what she achieved without her. We will be forever appreciative. 

Sean Tyson

Had a great response and was very pleasant. The whole process was simple and easy and had more than I thought.

Scott Reeve

The Lakeville SiebenCarey office has been great to work with. They listen and they care about their clients. I have very much enjoyed getting to know the folks in Lakeville, and would highly recommend any of the SiebenCarey Personal Injury Attorneys.

Art Kosieradzki from the Lakeville office cares about each of his clients and is an excellent attorney.
