Interstate 80 in Sacramento Construction Zone Created Huge Increases in Accident Injuries

It seems these days that our highways are in a constant state of construction or repair. When this happens it presents a traffic hazard that creates more car accidents in those construction areas. While it is important to make the highways safer for autos, the time in which these road are under construction present a real challenge for increased car and truck accidents. This is also coupled with an increase in construction worker hazards that can put their lives at risk.

A good example of how this can be a real problem is the Interstate 80 Construction Zone in Sacramento. Once the construction started and traffic lanes were diverted or narrowed, traffic accidents tripled, according to California Highway Patrol accident data. That section of road construction zone in Sacramento saw a 300% increase in car and truck accidents.

Caltrans was surprised by the large increase in accidents at the construction zone and soon after posted reduced speed limits in an effort to reduce traffic accidents in that area. The strange configuration of these temporary construction lanes had drivers very confused. Many of the car accidents in the construction zone were rear-end crashes that resulted in minor to major whiplash crash injuries. Other car accidents that occurred in the construction zone involved motorcycle accidents, roll-over crashes and various rear-ending accidents.

Regardless of all the safety measures that Caltrans installed, drivers still end up speeding or do not pay attention to traffic slow downs. This results in many accident injuries in these construction zones in the Sacramento area. Many innocent car accident victims fall prey to these impatient and careless drivers.

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.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

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!
