No-Fault On Ice

Cory P. Whalen - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyDecember 02, 2019

Under Minnesota’s No-Fault insurance law, a person suffering injuries arising out of the maintenance or use of a motor vehicle has a right to benefits – payment of medical bills, lost wages and other economic losses – regardless of who’s at fault. 

The term “use of a motor vehicle” seems pretty straightforward. But introduce Minnesota ice into the picture and the definition becomes, well, a little more slippery.

Arthur C. Kosieradzki - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyApril 20, 2017

If you were driving 55 miles per hour while your eyes were closed, you would drive the length of an entire football field. That’s a long distance. But no one chooses to close their eyes while driving, right? No one would willingly be so reckless.
 
When you look down from the steering wheel to answer a text message, it takes an average of five seconds. Five seconds to travel 100 yards, all while your eyes and your focus are on a phone and not the road. Five seconds that could be deadly.

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.

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.

John Zemlicka

My wife and I were involved in a car accident on October 4, 2018 when a driver approaching us decided to make a U turn and hit us. My wife spent nine days in the ICU with 10 broken or fractured ribs and multiple other injuries, and I had a broked rib and lacerations from my seat belt. The car was totaled.

We contacted SiebenCarey on the advice of a lawyer friend who we asked, “Who is the best injury lawyer in the Twin Cities”? We were interviewed within hours and the wheels were put in motion for medical benefits and recovery of our property and damages. We were advised that a complete settlement could take over a year, but our bills were paid and a settlement reached in less than 8 months. 
 
 Jim Carey called us several times during this period of time to update us on the progress of our claims. We are very happy and satisfied with the way we were treated and the results of our claim.  
 
Jenny and John Zemlicka
