When you are injured by the careless, reckless, or negligent acts of another person, you are probably not thinking about filing a lawsuit. You are focusing on your medical care and worrying about how you will provide for your family while you are recovering from the accident. As the medical bills begin to come in and you struggle to make ends meet because you are out of work, the insurance company offers you an amount to settle your claim. You need the money; however, the insurance company refuses to negotiate and continues to offer a low settlement figure. What should you do?

Contact a Sacramento Personal Injury Law Firm Immediately!

The insurance company for the person who caused your injury does not want you to contact our office. They want to offer you just enough money to get you to sign a release of liability or they want to drag out the claims process until the statute of limitations expires. If the statute of limitation expires on your personal injury claim, you will be unable to file a lawsuit against the negligent party to seek compensation for your losses. You must act quickly to protect your legal right to file a lawsuit against the person who caused you harm.

What is the California Statute of Limitation?

The California Statutes of Limitation are laws that limit the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you fail to file your lawsuit before the statute of limitation for that particular matter expires, you are barred from collecting compensation from that party. Examples of the statute of limitation in some personal injury cases include:

Even though the statutes of limitation in the above claims are all two years, it does not mean that the statute of limitation in your particular case will be two years. There are exceptions to the above rules that may shorten or lengthen the time period to file a personal injury lawsuit. You must be very careful when calculating the statute of limitation in your personal injury lawsuit. The date used to calculate the statute of limitation varies depending on the age of the victim, the type of personal injury claim, and the facts of the case. An experienced personal injury attorney should review your case to determine the deadline to file a lawsuit.

You Must Act Quickly!

Do not assume that you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. You should contact an attorney immediately in order to ensure you do not lose the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. The personal injury lawyers of the Tiemann Law Firm understand how to calculate the statute of limitation and they have the experience you need to fight for your right to a fair and just settlement.

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!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
