Do you have questions about a car crash? It is natural to have many questions about a car crash, especially if this is the first experience with a traffic accident. A majority of the questions about car accidents concern filing an injury claim and receiving compensation for damages. Our Tiemann Law Firm Sacramento accident lawyers answer all your questions about car accident claims during a free consultation, including the three most company questions shown below.

Three Most Common Questions Asked About Car Accident Claims

Question One: How much is my car crash claim worth?

This question is typically one of the top three questions asked during every consultation. Traffic accidents result in a variety of damages, including financial losses, pain, and suffering. It is normal to want to know how much your claim is worth so that you know how much money you may receive to catch up bills, pay debts, and get back on your feet.

Our Sacramento personal injury attorneys are honest with clients. Giving you a figure during your first visit is not ethical. We need to investigate your case and carefully analyze all the factors to calculate the maximum value of your claim.

Furthermore, if you are still under the care of a doctor, we do not want to value your cause because your damages could be much more severe when you complete treatment. We want to know all the facts before calculating the value of your claim so that we can give you the best chance of recovering maximum compensation for all damages.

What we will do now is work with you closely to document each type of damage and loss to ensure we include all damages when calculating your claim.

Question Two: How long does it take to get my money after a car crash?

You do not receive compensation for a car crash until the claim is settled. A settlement might occur at any time after the car crash through the end of a trial. Once an injury claim is settled, you typically receive your portion of the settlement proceeds within 30 to 60 days. Of course, if the amount is set by a trial, a defendant can appeal the verdict, which would delay the receipt of the settlement until the appeal is resolved.

The important thing to remember is that you do not want to settle your car crash claim too early. Settling your injury claim before you complete medical treatment, have all the facts/information, or have a full understanding of the extent of your financial and physical damages could result in receiving a much lower settlement amount. Work with your attorney to determine the best timeline to use that gives you the best chance of an optimum result.

Question Three: What does it cost to hire an attorney for a car crash claim?

In most cases, our Sacramento personal injury lawyers accept car crash claims on a contingency fee basis. With a contingency fee, you do not pay upfront attorneys’ fees when you hire our law firm. Our attorneys’ fees are paid as a percentage of the money we recover for your injury claim. Therefore, if you are not paid, our attorneys’ fees are not paid.

A contingency fee agreement allows you to have the legal counsel, support, and aggressive advocacy of trained trial attorneys to help with your car crash case, regardless of whether you have the funds right now to hire a law firm. We believe all injury victims deserve to have legal help as they seek fair and just compensation for a car accident claim.

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.

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.
