Happy Labor Day! Are you planning a last-minute trip to enjoy the long holiday weekend? If so, you are not alone. Many families and couples will head out on Friday or Saturday to enjoy the weekend. The attorneys and staff of The Tiemann Law Firm hope you enjoy your weekend and have a safe holiday with family and friends.

Increased Risk of Car Accidents

Labor Day is a busy travel period each year. More vehicles will be on the road as families enjoy one last get-away at the end of summer. Because we want you to be safe, we offer the following safe driving tips to help you avoid a car accident this Labor Day Weekend.

  • Wear your seat belt every time you are in the vehicle. We cannot stress enough how important it is for you to buckle up. Studies show that wearing your safety belt can decrease your risk of severe injury or death in a traffic accident. Make sure your children are secured in a child safety seat appropriate for the child’s age, weight, and height.
  • Get a good night’s sleep before driving. Drowsy or fatigued driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving. Get plenty of rest before you drive to reduce the risk of an accident.
  • Leave early to allow for traffic. You know there will be more traffic on the roads. Leaving early helps reduce the feeling of being rushed.
  • Never get behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking. Have a designated driver or use an alternative form of transportation (e. taxi, Uber, bus, etc.).
  • Allow more distance between you and the vehicle in front of you in case you need to stop quickly because of traffic. Tailgating can result in a costly and tragic accident.
  • Avoid distractions while driving. Having a passenger act as navigator and operate the GPS. Distracted driving is extremely dangerous at any time, but especially in heavy traffic situations.
  • If you encounter an aggressive driver or a driver with road rage, do not engage the driver. Put as much distance between you and the driver so he can just move on without incident.

Client Testimonials

Herb T. Testimonial

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.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

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.

S.B. Testimonial

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...

Jereme S. Testimonial

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.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

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!
