Grieving Parents Warn Students About Distracted Driving

Sun This Week, by Laura AdelmannNovember 28, 2014

Lakeville attorney Art Kosieradzki at Lakeville North High School to plead with the young adults to focus on only one thing when they get behind the wheel of a car: driving.

Kosieradzki emphasized that distracted driving is not just about cellphone use, but includes eating, grooming, drinking, smoking, adjusting the radio or other controls, reaching for objects in the car and any other activity that takes a driver's eyes, hands or mind from the task of driving. He called distracted driving an "epidemic" on American roads, and most students' hands went up when he asked if they have driven distracted or witnessed others doing so.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2011, 309,000 people were injured and another 3,331 people were killed in distraction-affected crashes.

For PI firm, short is sweet

Minnesota Lawyer, by Dan HeilmanSeptember 11, 2014

To legal-biz observers of a certain vintage, the area's top personal injury firm will always be Sieben, Grose, Von Holtum and Carey.

Times change, founding partners move on, and the marketplace demands a fresh style of branding. Those factors led to the firm's recent name change to SiebenCarey. The change more accurately reflects the firm's current leadership and provides a name that rolls off the tongue a bit more gracefully.

Safety and Insurance Tips for Motorcycle Riders

Arthur C. Kosieradzki - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneySeptember 03, 2014

Common sense tells us that motorcycling is simply more dangerous than driving a car. Aside from four wheels over two, cars are equipped with numerous safety features including seat belts, air bags and a surrounding structure that protects occupants in a crash. Motorcycles are also less visible to other drivers, and require more mental and physical skill to operate safely. Finally, motorcyclists are more vulnerable to bad weather and hazardous road conditions.

Arthur C. Kosieradzki - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyJuly 08, 2014

A man pulls into a Taco Bell drive-thru, places his order but never makes it to the pick up window.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Teresa Zweber

I retained Robert Brabbit in 2011 for a workmans comp case. I have been extremely pleased with him as my attorney. He won the first part of my case with ease, he has great knowledge and professionalism and am anxious to see the end results of my settlement. I would recommend him highly and he won against a major retail store.

Morgan Petoletti

My husband had an amazing experience with this firm. They listened and took the time to understand our case.

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. 

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!

Adele Thompson
I would like to express my gratitude for the excellent assistance in processing my legal action necessary due to a car accident. In particular Matthew Steinbrink exceeded my expectations regarding all the necessary paperwork and negotiating on my behalf. I would not hesitate to recommend SiebenCarey in the future.
