Car Accidents - Know Your Legal Rights

Cory P. Whalen - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyNovember 28, 2016

A car accident can change your life. Many times these accidents are entirely avoidable. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, contact Cory Whalen at SiebenCarey to learn about your legal rights.
 
Minnesota law can restrict your legal rights following a car accident. It’s important that you consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible following a car accident. Under Minnesota law, an injury victim from a car accident must establish certain “tort thresholds” to maintain a legal claim. You must prove one of the following thresholds:

  • At least $4,000 in medical expenses (excluding any charges for diagnostic treatment);
  • A permanent injury;
  • 60 days of disability;

Consultation with an attorney following a car accident is imperative in understanding your legal rights. Here at SiebenCarey we understand your legal rights following a car accident. We will gladly consult with you by telephone or in person to discuss your rights following a car accident. Don’t trust your legal rights with just anyone. Contact Cory Whalen and SiebenCarey if you’ve been in a car accident.

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.
