Are Hunting Accidents Crimes?

Jeffrey S. Sieben - SiebenCarey "Know Your Rights" AttorneyNovember 01, 2021

Fall brings hunting season to Minnesota. Deer hunting, pheasant and grouse hunting are my favorite types of hunting. Each Fall we learn about horrible accidents that leave people injured or dead as a result of another shooter's negligence. Many times these incidents do not result in criminal charges. The victims are left to suffer and the shooters are left to ponder their actions.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Paul Goetz

Bob Brabbit handled the insurance claims after the death of my brother. I appreciated his communication, professionalism and work on our behalf. He negotiated with the insurance companies and got us the best settlement possible. He was honest and upfront about process as well as costs. I 100% trust Bob and am grateful he took part of a tragic situation and solved it.

Mary Beth Edstrom

The process seemed to take more time than I anticipated and especially long delays with the Covid, no fault of your office or my attorney Matt Steinbrink. Matt and his staff were excellent. My case was emotional for me since my accident occurred when we were in route to the bedside of our dying son. Matt was kind and very sensitive to my situation as was his staff, in particular Rachel who I dealt with this past many months. I felt time was taken to prepare me for all that was to take place including the deposition and follow up on each step. I appreciated how professionally my case was addressed. I would recommend Matt Steinbrink to others and use his expertise if I ever have a future need!

Laurian Reiners

Mark Olive did an absolutely fantastic job helping Jim during his ordeal with the company he worked for.  The outcome made it so that Jim could retire after the settlement.  We could not asked for a better representative for him.

Jeff Adams

Art and his team have always demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and dedication. As an attorney, I appreciate this quality in a fellow colleague. I am pleased to post this review on behalf of Art.

Renee Goneau

SiebenCarey is a great personal injury law firm that really cares about their clients.  Highly recommend!
