Recent $15.5M recovery bucks general trend

While they grab headlines when they come, multimillion dollar verdicts in personal injury and medical malpractice cases are rare in Minnesota, trial lawyers say.

The scarcity of such results explains the attention paid to the eye-popping $15.5 million jury verdict entered in Ramsey County recently. The case involved a child who was born with cerebral palsy and other health problems after hospital staff allegedly failed to respond to signs of distress in the delivery. The jury award included $9 million in future medical and home care expenses, with the balance in lost future earnings, past medical expenses, past and future pain and suffering and lost services.

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.
