If you’re the victim of a truck accident, you have most likely suffered serious injuries as well as emotional trauma as a result. Doctor’s appointments and therapies, mounting medical bills, and loss of wages due to an inability to work can create overwhelming stress. An experienced lawyer will take on every aspect of your case, including conducting an independent investigation into the causes of the accident. This can include the following steps:

  1. Filing a spoliation letter to preserve all evidence of the accident. This document will notify all parties involved in the accident that evidence must not be destroyed, altered, or concealed in any way. Violation of the order can result in severe legal penalties.
  2. Collecting law enforcement reports.
  3. Obtaining witness statements from those at the accident scene.
  4. Requesting all digital evidence such as video surveillance, dashboard camera footage, GPS data, the Electronic Control Module (a truck’s black box), and cell phone records.
  5. Obtaining the safety inspection records of the truck.
  6. Investigating the trucking company’s hiring practices and obtaining the truck driver’s driving records, qualifications, and training records.
  7. Collecting cargo loading information for the vehicle.

A trucking accident can result from negligence by one or more parties. In addition to the driver’s actions, an accident may be caused by improper cargo loading, mechanical failure of the vehicle, or insufficient training of the driver. An attorney will gather all the facts and ask an expert to reconstruct the accident. 

Your attorney will use all the evidence to build the strongest case possible for you and then fight to get you the compensation you are entitled to.

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!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
