TSR Injury Law Partner Chuck Slane represented a client who underwent spinal fusion surgery as a result of a car crash. The insurance company initially offered $15,000 to settle. The Dakota County jury awarded $200,000 of compensation to plaintiff.

Chuck Slane, TSR Injury Law Partner and Minnesota Top 40 Plaintiff's Attorney, represented William Kieper for injuries suffered in a car crash in Burnsville, Minnesota, January, 17, 2006.

Minnesota Personal Injury Attorney Chuck Slane tried the case of Kieper v. Shea to a Dakota County jury in October (case #19HA-CV-09-61). The case involved a client who underwent spinal fusion surgery as a result of a car crash. The crash was caused by inattention; Defendant Shea simply drove into the back of Kieper's vehicle.

Shea and her insurance carrier, State Farm, claimed the crash was caused by ice. Furthermore, they claimed the crash was unavoidable. However, on the eve of trial, that defense was abandoned and liability was admitted. Instead they argued that the surgery was the result of pre-existing degenerative changes rather than the crash.

The insurance company offered only $15,000 until the eve of trial at which point they raised the offer to $90,000. After a week-long trial, the jury provided $200,000 of compensation to Kieper.
