Festive gatherings are part of what makes the holiday season special. Still, partygoers who enjoy too much holiday cheer and then get behind the wheel of a car is a disastrous combination that creates a threat to others on the road. The California Highway Patrol reported 1,891 DUI-related car accidents over the last two years. It’s a significant problem that sees its biggest increase during the Christmas and New Year’s holiday period.

Dealing with the Aftermath of a DUI Accident

All car accidents are traumatic, but those involving a drunk driver can leave even deeper scars, both physical and emotional. Since those driving under the influence may have no sense of what they’re doing, the accidents often involve high-speed or direct collisions, which result in serious injuries. The state of California is tough on drunk drivers, but seeing the victim put in jail may do little to help you recover from the injuries and financial burdens you’ve incurred or the emotional trauma of the accident.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

Our attorneys have over 25 years of experience with DUI cases. We know that you are likely dealing with a pile of bills for things like:

  • Medical care
  • Rehabilitative therapies
  • Medical equipment
  • Loss of wages
  • Property damage
  • Car rental fees

You may be unable to return to work for a long time and have continued medical expenses in the future. Our attorneys will help calculate the number of damages you need to be made whole.

You may also be entitled to punitive damages if the person who caused the accident consumed alcohol, knowing that they would later be driving a motor vehicle. During this trying time, our legal experts can provide support and take some of the burden off your shoulders by helping you understand your rights and pursue the maximum amount of compensation you’re entitled to in a DUI accident.

Michael T. Testimonial

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

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.
