When a car accident occurs, family members suffer financial and emotional damages when a loved one is injured or killed. The injured person is not the only victim in a car accident. While monetary compensation cannot replace a lost loved one or replace the comfort, care, and companionship that a loved one provides, it can serve to bring justice to the accident victim and his or her family. A monetary compensation in a car accident also provides the financial support to allow the victim to seek medical care and the family to pay for living expenses during the accident victim’s recovery.

In a California motor vehicle accident, you are entitled to receive compensation for your damages. Depending on the facts and circumstances of your car accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for property damage, lost wages, medical expenses, and other compensatory damages. Your family members may also be entitled to sue the negligent driver for damages too. Family members sue the other driver in a car accident for a variety of reasons. The two most common reasons why family members file lawsuits regarding car accidents include wrongful death and spousal loss of consortium.

California Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Under California’s wrongful death laws, certain family members can file a lawsuit against a negligent driver when the motor vehicle accident results in the death of a loved one. The pain and suffering experienced when you lose a loved one is unimaginable. When that loss is because of a car accident, you are entitled to receive compensation from the at-fault driver. No amount of money will ever bring back your loved one nor will it ease the pain you are experiencing; however, a monetary award can help you obtain justice for your loved one as well as provide for your family’s financial needs. The wrongful death attorneys of Tiemann Law Firm can explain how to file a wrongful death lawsuit in a car accident case. You only have a limited time to file a wrongful death lawsuit; therefore, do not delay in contacting our office to discuss your loved one’s death.

California Spousal Loss of Consortium Lawsuits

A loss of consortium lawsuit is the second most common type of claim in a car accident involving your spouse. A claim for loss of consortium may be filed when your spouse is injured in a car accident and your spouse suffers injuries that prevent intimacy or prevents your spouse from providing care, comfort, and support. An experienced personal injury attorney can evaluate your situation to advise what types of actions are available to you when your spouse is injured in a car accident. Just as with wrongful death lawsuits, you only have a limited time to file a lawsuit when your spouse is injured; therefore, do not delay in contacting our office to schedule a free consultation with one of our Sacramento car accident attorneys.

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

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.
