When car accidents happen, many of those injured in the accidents don’t think they have any recourse when they’re dealing with all of the ramifications of their injuries. Even for seemingly minor injuries, you can suffer from long-term pain, and the treatment for your injuries can be costly. “Minor” injuries can have a great and detrimental impact on you, your life, and your finances.

If a negligent driver was the cause of an accident that led to you being cut and bruised, you do have recourse. You can file a personal injury claim or lawsuit to pursue compensation for your losses.

The Sacramento car accident attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm have over two decades of experience representing those who have been injured in car accidents. From traumatic brain injuries to cuts and bruises, we’ve helped our clients recover money for their losses so they could continue healing from their injuries and the trauma of their accidents.

Effects of Sustaining Cuts and Bruises in a Car Accident

It may seem like cuts and bruises are minimal injuries. You can see daily reminders on your body of the injuries you sustained in the car accident for years, however. Depending on the severity of your cuts, you could be left with permanent scarring. Although it’s not typically physically painful, you may feel uncomfortable or self-conscious about your scars.

There have been advances in science, medicine, and plastic surgery for the treatment of scars. You may be able to use strong prescription ointments to fade the scars from your cuts, or you may be able to get non-invasive in-office plastic surgery procedures. These options cost money. Plastic surgery procedures to fade scarring can cost thousands of dollars.

Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney?

This is a common question that many people who have been injured in car accidents have. If pursuing compensation is as simple as filing a claim with the insurance company, why can’t you just do it on your own? It’s understandable why you may ask this question, especially if you’re worried about how you could afford an attorney.

The honest answer is that you can certainly file a personal injury claim with the insurance company on your own. You’ll likely feel the disadvantage of not having your own attorney when the time comes to communicate with the insurance company about your compensation, however.

Insurance companies aren’t concerned with doing everything they can to support and compensate injured parties fairly. Their goal is to minimize money going out of their coffers and maximize their intake of dollars. One of the ways they do this is by paying the least amount of compensation necessary to settle personal injury claims. So, when you file your claim with the hopes of being fairly compensated for your injuries in a swift and seamless manner, unfortunately, you may be faced with hurdles.

Representatives who investigate and process injury claims at insurance companies can be manipulative toward unsuspecting injured parties, especially when these representatives know that an injured party has no legal representation. They may use tactics to get you to admit some degree of fault for the accident. If the insurance company can assert that you shared blame for the car accident, the total compensation that they may have to pay you could be reduced in accordance with California’s pure comparative negligence law.

By having an attorney on your side who will advocate for you during this process, you greatly increase your chance of overcoming the insurance company’s efforts to pay you less than you’re owed. A car accident attorney with years of experience, like the attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm, knows how to dodge these tactics and will help you file a strong claim right from the outset.

Additionally, we understand that when people are injured in car accidents, they may worry about how they could be able to afford an attorney. We don’t want you to feel defeated or to be held back from pursuing justice for your injuries because of an inability to pay for legal representation. Tiemann Law Firm offers a free initial consultation to discuss your case and determine whether you have a valid claim. If you decide to move forward with pursuing compensation and hire us, we’ll represent you at no upfront cost to you. We’re only paid when we win your claim or case and get compensation for you.

The Process of Seeking Compensation for Your Cuts and Bruises

After you’ve been injured in a car accident and hired Tiemann Law Firm, we’ll get to work immediately building a solid claim to file with the at-fault driver’s insurance company. We’ll investigate the car accident and gather the evidence we need to prove your injuries and the at-fault party’s liability. We will negotiate with the insurance company to get them to give you a fair settlement that fully compensates you for your losses. If the insurance company denies your claim or offers you a lower settlement than you’re entitled to, then we’re prepared to file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party directly.

When we file our lawsuit, our focus shifts from negotiating with an insurance company to building a strong case against the responsible party, which we’ll argue in front of a judge or jury. We can’t dictate the outcome of a trial. The court may decide to award you significant compensation for your injuries, or they may decide to award you nothing. We’ll fight our hardest to ensure your case ends with a favorable outcome.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.
