If so, our Sacramento car accident attorneys can help. Our personal injury law firm represents accident victims and their families who need an attorney to aggressively pursue an accident claim to get the money they need and deserve for their injury claims.

Reasons Why Car Accidents Occur in California

  • Distracted Driving — Distracted driving is a severe problem throughout the United States. The use of cell phones, GPS, and other electronics have become a huge distraction. In addition to electronics, eating, interacting with other passengers, looking at things on the side of the road, adjusting vehicle controls, and grooming are other examples of distractions that can cause traumatic car crashes.
  • Speeding and Other Traffic Infractions Reckless driving, speeding, failing to yield the right of way, running stop signs, and following too closely are examples of causes of traffic accidents. Speeding accidents are increasing as drivers continue to ignore posted speed limits.
  • Impaired Driving — Drunk driving and drugged driver causes thousands of traffic accidents each year in California. A drunk driver or drugged driver places everyone on the road in danger.
  • Inclement Weather — Weather conditions are another common cause of accidents. Snow, fog, rain, ice, high wind, and other weather conditions can create dangerous driving conditions. In many cases, the driver is also doing something that contributes to the cause of the crash such as driving too fast or following too closely.
  • Teen Drivers — Teen drivers are not inherently bad drivers. However, they are inexperienced drivers. A teen driver’s inexperience can increase the teen’s risk of being involved in an accident.
  • Defective Automobiles — Defective cars and defective car parts can lead to a car accident or injury. If a defective part causes an injury or accident, you might be entitled to recover compensation from the manufacturer or another party.
  • Dangerous Road Conditions — Road debris, construction zones, defective road designs, and inadequate road maintenance can lead to car accidents. You might have a claim against a government agency, contractor, or other third party.
  • Drowsy Driving — Drowsy driving or fatigued driving is a common cause of accidents, especially commercial truck accidents. Truck drivers who are driving for too many hours can become drowsy or fatigued, which increases their risk of causing a truck accident.

Compensation for a Car Accident Claim

You deserve to be compensated if another driver causes an injury, regardless of the cause of the accident. Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you might be entitled to receive money for your lost wages, property damage, medical bills, physical pain, permanent disability, and emotional suffering. Our Sacramento car accident attorneys can help you maximize your chance of recovering full compensation for all damages.

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.
