No-Contact No-Fault

Cory P. Whalen - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyMarch 20, 2013

Under the No-Fault statute, a person suffering injuries arising out of the maintenance or “use of a motor vehicle” has a right to benefits. This would naturally include drivers, passengers and pedestrians injured by motor vehicles. But what if the victim doesn’t fit these categories? What if the person doesn’t even make contact with a motor vehicle? Can there possibly be coverage? The surprising answer is “yes.”

Black Ice. Does Cold Weather Make A Difference?

Arthur C. Kosieradzki - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyJanuary 28, 2013

I've always been told to be careful of black ice when it gets really cold. Careful of the slip and slide, especially on bridges when the temperature dips below zero. Well today when I stepped outside it was freezing. I mean really freezing with the mercury at eight below zero. It got me thinking that maybe I should take a look and see if there is really something to this cold weather and black ice rumor. Here's what I found through my early morning research. This kind of feels like a middle school science project but hey, if it helps make things safer for someone then great.

Lakeville attorney recognized for excellence in practice

Sun This WeekJuly 11, 2012

"In today's day an age, I think specializing helps," he said. "And I specialize in helping injury victims."

Lakeville-based attorney Art Kosieradzki has been selected by "Super Lawyers" magazine for recognition in 2011. Only 5 percent of lawyers in the state of Minnesota are named to this list each year. Kosieradzki is a partner at SiebenCarey in Lakeville, where he manages the location.

"Super Lawyers" is a listing of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. It is published as a special supplement in several publications including Super Lawyers.

He sits on the Million Dollar Roundtable, a recognition given only to lawyers who have won million-dollar-plus verdicts, and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a national merit organization consisting of about 700 of the nation's most accomplished attorneys.

Given his record of winning large-figured verdicts might cause some to believe his work is all about money, but hearing him talk about his involvement in the lives of those he is helping legally could leave one with an entirely different impression.

Weighing negligence and risk

Minnesota Lawyer, by Jane F. PribekApril 27, 2012

The Minnesota Supreme Court put the brakes on a defendant's argument that the doctrine of primary assumption of risk should relieve him of liability for negligent operation of a snowmobile.

That April 25 ruling in Daly v. McFarland stems from a lawsuit regarding a January 2007 accident. Christopher Daly and Zachary McFarland were riding when McFarland's snowmobile hit a drift and became airborne. He pushed his snowmobile away from his body to avoid injury, and it collided with Daly's sled. Daly fell off and was injured.

Know the Warning Signs of Cyberbullying

Sun This Week, by Art KosieradzkiSeptember 14, 2011

Cyberbullying can be an ugly part of a childhood or high school experience, but it doesn't have to create lasting effects.

Malpractice lawsuits highly technical, expensive

Duluth News Tribune, by Brandon StahlMay 29, 2011

Medical malpractice lawsuits are difficult to file in Minnesota, let alone win, and they're not approached lightly.

Under a state law passed in the 1970s to prevent frivolous lawsuits, before a case can be brought it must be reviewed by an independent medical expert who specializes in the same field of the physician accused of wrongdoing. That expert then has to sign a detailed affidavit saying that not only did negligent care occur, but the care resulted in harm. The cost to get an expert and to obtain medical records can be thousands of dollars.

"A lot of law firms stay away from these cases because it involves a lot of time and expense before you even know if there's a case," said Paul Schweiger, a Duluth attorney who specializes in malpractice cases.
