Settlement Reached In Suit Filed By St. Paul Sewer Worker's Family

Star Tribune, by Pat PheiferMarch 09, 2009

The city of St. Paul and a consulting firm were sued after a worker was swept away during a sudden downpour.

It was a quiet courtroom Monday when a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the heirs and next-of-kin of Joe Harlow was officially settled.

Harlow, 34, was one of two sewer workers swept to his death when a sudden downpour flooded the St. Paul sewer system on July 26, 2007.  Harlow and Dave Yasis, 23, the other victim, were employed by Lametti & Sons of Hugo, which did the actual sewer rehabilitation work.

Joe Harlow, who drowned with Dave Yasis in a downpour last July, was wrongly put in a dangerous situation.

The family of one of the two sewer workers who died in July after being swept from St. Paul's storm tunnels into the Mississippi River has filed a wrongful-death suit against the city and the firm hired to oversee work in the tunnels.

Joe Harlow and Dave Yasis were killed when a sudden downpour swept them away before they could climb up a sewer shaft in the Frogtown neighborhood.

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.

Even though I was states away and could only talk on the phone, they listened and did everything that they could to win my case. I felt like I was a part of the family.

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.
