When your life is suddenly interrupted by a car accident, it turns everything upside down. In a blink of an eye, the plans you had with your family, your career and your personal aspirations are thrown into confusion and you are left with a long list of concerns and whole lot of uncertainty. That’s the first reason why should hire a lawyer who’s local and experienced in handling accident cases. Here are five ways an attorney can help you:

  1. Help clarify your options and explain your rights. Fortunately, most of us have not been in serious accidents multiple times, but that’s also why it’s so discombobulating to find yourself the victim of one. There are several players involved—one or more insurance companies, other parties involved in the accident, their lawyers, the police, etc. An experienced attorney has seen this scenario many times. He or she will be able to explain the different avenues of pursuing damages and help you make the best decisions for your individual case.
  2. Conduct an independent investigation. A negligent driver’s attorney may attempt to shift some or all of the blame for the accident onto you. An insurance company may be looking to minimize what they have to pay for damages. An attorney has access to evidence and will examine your case from the beginning. He or she also has access to experts who they can call upon to strengthen your case.
  3. Determine the amount of compensation to seek. What financial compensation are you entitled to? There are calculable expenses for medical bills, therapy, and assistive equipment. If your accident prohibits you from working, you can also claim lost wages. But what about the future? What will your medical needs be in the future? How about pain and suffering—for emotional trauma, loss of companionship and other life alterations. Your attorney knows how to calculate it all and will ask for an amount that will take care of your current and future needs.
  4. Take care of all the nuts-and-bolts details. The paperwork and protocols associated with a personal injury claim can be confusing. Your attorney will take care of all of it. You won’t miss deadlines or fail to have done all that you’re required in order for your case to proceed in a smooth and timely manner.
  5. Be the person who is solely looking out for you. At the end of the day, everyone involved in your case has something to gain or lose. When you hire one of our attorneys, you will gain an advocate whose complete aim is to do what is best for you. Remember, if you don’t win, we don’t win. We’ll fight hard to get you the maximum amount of compensation you’re entitled to so that you can begin to put your life back together again and move forward.

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.

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!
