Minnesota Accident Attorney Testimonials
“I was hit by a drunk driver, which shattered my knee. To make matters worse, I was pregnant and close to delivery. I needed help and felt helpless in the hospital. One of the surgery nurses even advised that I should not call an attorney because all I would get is $30,000 and he will take half!”
“Thankfully, I didn’t listen to her and I called Steve. He came to my room and everything got easier. All my questions were answered and his firm exceeded my wildest expectations.”
In short order, Steve:
- Doubled my insurance, retroactively with American Family, to pay for my surgery and get me double wage loss and at home service help,
- Found the drunk and got coverage established,
- Documented my surgery with blown up x-rays and got me a check for $100,000.00 within a few months.”
“Steve was always there to answer questions and walk me through the complicated legal maneuvering of both my insurance and the drunk’s. We are now working with my insurance for the next layer of coverage, which I didn’t even know I had!”
Amy Welshons, Stillwater
“I was a young lady when I got in a car crash. A friend rolled the truck we were in. I had immediate injuries and went by ambulance to the hospital. My father thought we could work with the insurance company on our own. We were wrong. The experience I had with my own insurance bordered on craziness! We hired TSR Injury Law to level the playing field. Steve said it was the worst case of insurance abuse he had ever seen.
In short order after we hired his firm, Steve won every bill owed, got the insurance company to apologize for their conduct and settled my case for the maximum amount of coverage. While all this was happening in my life, my father got sick and Steve even sent him flowers. I have never heard of that from any law firm.”
“My name is Pemba Tsering. I am originally from Tibet. I sustained a serious injury to my knee when my bicycle was struck head on by a taxicab. I was riding my bicycle home after finishing work at my second full time job. I was in the bicycle lane when the taxicab illegally passed another vehicle and collided head on with my bicycle. My kneecap was shattered, my thumb was broken and I had a serious concussion. I was off work for months, and I will never return to my second full-time job.
The insurance carrier refused to settle my case. They claimed my injuries were not serious and that the accident was my fault. Chuck took my case to trial, and a jury awarded damages in the amount of $520,000. Before trial the insurance company made an offer of $50,000. Chuck was not afraid to take the case to trial. Maybe next time the insurance carrier will think twice before refusing to treat people fairly.”

“My name is Brent Larson. In November of 2000, I was on my way home after picking up dinner for my family when I was struck by another vehicle that ran a stop sign. I was seriously injured. My spleen was ruptured and it had to be removed. My ankle was shattered and required several surgeries. I also had nerve damage that affected the use of my hand and arm. After the accident, I learned that the person that hit me was drunk, and it was his third drunk driving violation.
As a result of my injuries, I had to sell my home and move my family into my mother’s home. It was a very difficult time for my family and me. Chuck was able to help me through this difficult time and answer all of my questions. When my case was complete, I was able to purchase a new home for my family to live in.”

“My name is Joe Spelios. In May of 1997 I was seriously hurt in a workplace accident. I was working for a friend’s company that installed loading dock doors. We were on a work site in Rochester when an unmarked can started on fire. I attempted to remove this can from under a desk and became engulfed in flames. I was burnt over 34% of my body. My medical bills alone exceeded $100,000.
I hired a lawyer to help with the case, but he did not do anything. I waited for a long time for him to get the case settled. After I decided to change lawyers, he informed me that he had received an offer to settle for $25,000.
I hired Chuck Slane to take over the case. He immediately discussed the case with the insurance adjuster and was told, “Sometimes cases are just not good cases and they need to be settled.”
Chuck started a lawsuit and began re-creating the file from scratch. That was necessary because my first lawyer lost my file. It was discovered that the Defendant had made a habit of keeping an uncovered, unlabeled can of flammable solvent under his desk. Rules required that the solvent be in a covered can with a label, and that it should be stored in the paint vault.
After we discovered this information the insurance company raised their offer to $100,000, but they still denied any responsibility for the accident.
Chuck and I decided to go to trial and let a jury decide what a fair settlement would be. After a week long trial, the jury found the Defendant to be 100% responsible for the accident and awarded damages in the amount of $1,934,000.
I am very satisfied with the work of the firm, TSR Injury Law, and I would recommend them to anyone that needs a personal injury lawyer.”

“I broke my shoulder in three places when I fell in front of my apartment building. I am legally blind and therefore I must utilize different friends for everyday activities. I was concerned about hiring a lawyer because I needed someone I could trust. Steve came to my apartment and spent two hours discussing my case. The City of Minnesota did not want to pay my medical bills or accept responsibility, so I asked Steve to start a lawsuit. The case finally resolved and I can truly say that I am satisfied with the result and my continued friendship with Steve.”

“I was a passenger in a friend’s car that hit a tree. I fractured my pelvis and hurt my neck and back. I felt bad about “suing” my friend but the medical bills mounted and I was off work. To make matters worse, I was pregnant and concerned about giving birth with a broken pelvis.
I called TSR Injury Law. Steve explained that we would not have to “sue” anyone. In fact, my case was settled with my friend’s insurance. Steve also found another layer of insurance coverage because the crash had some unique facts. We were able to settle with the second insurance carrier also and still keep my medical bill coverage open. Steve understood the human side of the case and did not start a lawsuit just to do it. He listened to my concerns and followed my input. I took less in the settlement, but am happy because I am still friends with the driver.”
“In November of 1998 I was hit by a drunk driver and sustained injuries to my neck and back that required a neck fusion in 2001. The complex process of getting what you can out of insurance companies was handled in a professional, diligent matter by Steve and his team over a 4 ½ year time frame. Throughout this time I was kept well informed of the progress of my case and had complete confidence that Steve had everything under control. Because of his efforts, I never had to worry about the $50,000 in medical bills, time off work, and the never-ending battle with the drunk’s insurance and my insurance company. In the summer of 2003, my insurance company made an offer the week before our scheduled arbitration date but we hung in there; and with Steve’s skill we ended up receiving all but $3000 of my insurance policy limits. Who you are as a person does not matter to any insurance company so it pays to shop for a lawyer when you are injured. In my opinion you do not need to look any further than TSR Injury Law. I would highly recommend Steve and his team at TSR Injury Law.”
“My wife and I were ‘t-boned’ in downtown Minnesota. My wife, Darlene, knew she was hurt immediately, but I thought everything was okay. Unfortunately, I began to feel the affects of the collision a few weeks later and decided to seek treatment. At the same time, my insurance company started calling my home asking questions which I had no idea how to answer and they sent paperwork that I was uncomfortable signing. I hired TSR Injury Law to help. They were referred by a friend who was happy with their services.
Steven fought my insurance to pay the surgery bills, as well as the insurance of the person who hit us. I was amazed at how complicated the insurance companies tried to make the crash. The end result was Steven won the case on both sides. He got all my bills and wages paid and we settled the claim so that I was compensated for the pain and suffering. Based on this wonderful experience with Steve, I have referred him co-workers and family members who need legal help. I can not recommend anyone higher than TSR Injury Law.”

“In February of 1997, I broke my elbow and tore the ACL, PCL, and Meniscus on my left knee due to a fall. Because of a suggestion from an acquaintance, I went with another law firm for my case. Unfortunately, they never returned calls and did not explain what was happening with my case. After my frustration grew, I switched to TSR Injury Law.
I had worries about bills, two surgeries, and lost time from work. As an executive in the housing industry, it was difficult to miss so much work. Steven Terry walked me through the entire process, including litigation, answering all of my questions and calming my nerves. We eventually settled, after a complete denial by the insurance company, and I can honestly say that I am happy with the end result as well as my experience with TSR Injury Law.”
