Sacramento Attorneys for Cuts and Bruises from Car Accidents
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.

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.
