Albert Lea Tribune, by Tim EngstromJune 10, 2010

Another lawsuit has been filed in the Albert Lea elder abuse case against the Good Samaritan Society. This civil case has been filed in Sioux Falls, which is the headquarters for the nursing home chain.

The lawsuit seeks damages from Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, saying its supervisors in Albert Lea were negligent in failing to provide proper supervision of four teenage certified nursing assistants who allegedly abused patients emotionally, sexually and physically in the first half of 2008.

Jim Carey, of the SiebenCarey law firm said the situation was not just the case of one employee who on one or two occasions engaged in this type of behavior.

Pioneer Press, by Amy Forliti January 26, 2010

"It's off-the-chart wrong."

The operator of nursing home in Albert Lea and four fired nursing assistants were sued over allegations that the aides groped, spanked and spat on several nursing home residents suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease.

The lawsuit claims the nursing assistants spent four months abusing residents at Good Samaritan Society. The conduct of the four defendants "was so extreme and outrageous that it passed the boundaries of decency."

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.

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.

I started working with Jim from SiebenCarey after my wife and I were in a car accident a few years ago. We were referred to them by someone in the area and we are so grateful we worked with the firm. Jim and his team were very caring and very responsive to all needs and questions. He made sure that all of our medical bills and expenses from the accident were paid and took care of all of the questions and needs from insurance companies and medical facilities. It was so nice to have someone who was on our side. I would highly recommend working with Jim!
