Being injured in a car accident can disrupt your entire life. It is not as if you plan on being in an accident, it just happens. Even if you are not injured, you must deal with the property damage to your vehicle. It takes time to rent a vehicle, get repair estimates, choose a body shop, and wait for your vehicle to be repaired. You are going to miss at least a few days of work. If you are injured, you could miss several days or weeks of work. In the event you need surgery, you could be out of work for several months. A personal injury accident can turn your life upside down.

Being out of work for several days or weeks can be challenging financially. If you are unable to return to work for months, the results can be devastating. If you are injured in an accident and you are unable to return to work, there are several things you need to do so that you can prepare to file an injury claim.

Follow Your Doctor’s Orders

Even though you feel an urgency to return to work, you need to follow your doctor’s instructions. If you fail to follow your doctor’s treatment plan, the insurance company for the other party can argue that you caused your injury to be more severe than it would have been otherwise. You could also prolong your recovery time, resulting in additional lost time from work. Instead, make sure that you keep every appointment with your physician, discuss your treatment plan, and protect your health and claim by staying out of work until your doctor releases you to return to work.

Control the Things You Can

When you are out of work because of an injury, it can be overwhelming. Becoming depressed is easy when you are unable to return to work and the bills are piling up.  Try to focus on the things that you can control. Take a close look at your personal budget to find ways to reduce expenses and save money. Look at all potential sources of income and plan how you will make ends meet if you are unable to return to work for several months.

Consult a Personal Injury Attorney

The financial hardship caused by an accident can be difficult. The physical and emotional sufferings can be overwhelming, but the financial burden can cause serious problems for you and your family. Consulting an attorney to discuss your options for filing an injury claim is one of the steps you can take to recover the money you have lost because of the accident.

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.

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!
