If you are involved in a truck accident case, it is very important that you consult a San Leandro truck accident lawyer about filing an injury claim. Truck accident claims can be complex and move very quickly at the beginning of the case. Therefore, you want an attorney who has experience handling these types of traffic accident cases to protect your best interests against large insurance companies and huge trucking companies.

Four Common Questions About Truck Accidents in San Leandro

We understand you may have many questions about filing an accident claim involving a commercial truck. Our truck accident lawyers want to answer each of your questions. Below are four of the common questions many accident victims have after a large truck accident.

  1. Who is going to pay my bills and lost wages?

In a truck accident claim, there could be one or more parties who are responsible for your damages and losses. The parties named in a claim might include the truck driver, trucking company, truck owner, loader, repair shop, truck manufacturer, another driver, and government entities. To determine the liable parties in your case, our attorneys conduct a thorough investigation. It is vital to identify all parties responsible for the crash to increase your chance of recovering maximum compensation for your injuries.

  1. How much compensation can I receive for my claim?

The amount you recover for your damages depends on several factors. You are entitled to file a claim for your financial damages, including property damage, lost wages, and medical bills. However, your claim can also include an amount for your emotional suffering and physical pain. Because the injuries sustained in a large truck accident tend to be severe, the damages in these claims are usually substantial. Our lawyers analyze every possible loss and damage to maximize the amount you can receive for your claim.

  1. Why is a commercial truck accident claim different from other traffic accident claims?

Claims involving large trucks, including collisions with tractor-trailers, semi-trailers, semi-trucks, and big rigs, 18-wheelers, are more complex than other traffic accident claims for several reasons. For instance, federal laws and regulations govern the trucking industry. These regulations can be a crucial factor in the case. In addition, large trucks are complex pieces of machinery. In many cases, experts are required to assist with determining the cause of the accident and proving fault.

Furthermore, insurance companies aggressively defend claims involving large trucks because the claims usually involve substantial damages. Therefore, you need an attorney who can act quickly to protect evidence from being destroyed or lost. Lastly, truck accident claims usually involve several defendants. Because you could be suing multiple parties, you need an attorney who can handle a large, complex case.

  1. How much does it cost to hire a San Leandro truck accident attorney?

Our law firm accepts most cases on a contingency fee basis. You do not pay our attorney fees upfront. We only receive our fees after we recover money for your claim. Our attorneys want you to have the legal representation you need to fight the insurance company and the trucking company without worrying about how you will pay attorney’s fees.

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.

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!
