Our brain is “command central” for our entire body. Most of us aren’t even fully aware of the full scope of all that our brain does until there’s an injury that impedes its function. One of the most debilitating injuries suffered in accidents is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) which is usually the result of a severe impact to the head from an external object or an object that pierces the skull. Another form of brain injury—acquired brain injury (ABI)—occurs due to internal factors such as lack of oxygen or pathology, which can result from exposure to toxins.

Effects of Brain Injuries

Since the brain’s function extends to the entire body, the consequences of brain damage can be seen in various ways. Impairment and the symptoms manifested due to a brain injury can be broken down into three categories:

Cognitive

  • Memory loss
  • Issues communicating
  • Slowed ability to process information
  • Trouble concentrating

Emotional

  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Hallucinations
  • Temper outbursts
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Depression

Physical

  • Seizures
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Impaired mobility
  • Muscle spasticity
  • Headaches

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!
