Albert Lea Tribune, by Tim Engstrom

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.

Lawyer Jim Carey, of the SiebenCarey law firm in Minneapolis, alleged systemic failure at a news conference in January in Minneapolis. He said the situation was not just the case of one employee who on one or two occasions engaged in this type of behavior. Instead, he alleged, these nurses aides were going into rooms and locking the doors, adding there was screaming from the residents, laughing from the aides and video recording as well.

Jim Carey and his staff were great. Returned calls promptly and answered any and all questions in layman's terms for me. Exceeded my expectations. I've already told family and friends that if any of them should need personal injury representation to contact SiebenCarey. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again if necessary.
Lora O'Hern
Mr. Carey and his staff were so professional  and helpful dealing with our accident. Their communication was excellent. Working with the SiebenCarey team was the only bright spot in our horrible accident experience. We always felt we were represented by extremely knowledgeable and caring people. We appreciate the outstanding service we received.

Jim Carey and his staff were excellent at their jobs. They were very understanding and were always available if you had questions on something with my case. They treated you as if you were their only client that they had. I would definitely recommend sending anyone to SiebenCarey because they really do care about you.

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.
