If you’ve been in a car accident, you may wonder if you need to hire an attorney to represent you. Perhaps you think your case is cut and dried and that the other driver involved is clearly at fault. Or, you may have already been contacted by an insurance company and trust a fair settlement is forthcoming. However, there is much to consider in the aftermath of an accident. Here’s why hiring an experienced attorney is a good choice:

  1. Who’s Looking Out for You? – In the case of an accident, a negligent driver wants to shift the blame away from themselves. They may already have a lawyer working for them to do just that. Insurance companies have their bottom lines to consider and will want to pay the least amount of money possible. Your attorney is the only one guarding your best interests and advocating for you.
  2. Knowing Your Rights – California law is complex. Your attorney will be well-versed in the law and familiar with local attorneys and judges. You may be eligible for damages that you are not aware of.
  3. Following Procedures and Protocols – Lawsuits involve paperwork and deadlines for filing. After an accident, especially if you are recovering from serious injuries, trying to stay abreast of your case’s technical aspects can be overwhelming. An attorney will handle all those details, and all phone calls regarding your case will go to him.
  4. Building the Strongest Case Possible – Your attorney will conduct their own independent investigation into your accident. Assembling all the evidence, interviewing witnesses, and even calling in experts to support your case.
  5. Getting the Appropriate Settlement – You have probably seen a mountain of medical bills come in since your accident, but the compensation you need will extend beyond that. If your injuries have caused you to miss work or may result in permanent changes to your abilities, an attorney can calculate the damages that will cover your current and future expenses and losses related to the accident.

Cost is one final reason an accident victim may hesitate to contact an attorney. We want you to know that there are no attorney’s fees for you until you receive compensation. It’s worth a call to find out how we can help.

The Tiemanns were referred to me by a friend and I am exceptionally happy with the service I received. I had never been in an accident before. I had no idea what to do. Jelena verbally explained how everything would work to me, and she and Peter handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger once. They went above and beyond for me and I am extremely grateful. I pray I won't ever need this type of assistance again, but I will definitely be referring them to friends and family.

I highly recommend The Tiemann Law Firm! I had never before been in a situation where I sustained injury and had to seek legal representation. I was nervous, traumatized, and had no idea what to expect. Jelena, Peter, and their staff walked me through each step of the process. They explained everything in detail. They patiently answered all my questions, responded quickly to every email, text message, phone call, etc. I felt totally prepared for each new phase of the legal process. Furthermore, they were fearless in their defense of me. In certain situations, when I felt attacked or scared my attorney protected me like I was family. Their diligence, honesty, integrity, and compassion provided a true sense of healing and closure for my family and I. The Tiemann Law Firm accomplished more for me than I ever thought possible and I am forever grateful.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!
