Your brain is the most amazing and complex organ in your body. It’s responsible for everything you do from breathing and swallowing to walking, thinking, solving problems, interpreting social cues, and experiencing emotions. That’s why even a small amount of brain damage can have devastating consequences.

The costs associated with treating traumatic brain injuries are staggering. The Centers for Disease Control report that approximately 76.5 billion dollars are spent annually for hospitalizations, testing, medications, and rehabilitation. That’s why if you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury because of a car, truck, motorcycle or other type of accident you need an experienced attorney to help determine the amount of damages you should seek.

Compensation You May be Entitled To

Your attorney will look at all the facts pertaining to your case to determine who is liable for your injuries. He or she will also learn the nature of your brain injuries and areas of your life it is likely to impact. Your attorney will be looking not just at the expenses you’ve already incurred but what you’ll need in the future. Areas you are entitled to seek damages for include:

  • Current medical expenses—bills you currently have
  • Future medical and rehabilitation expenses—will therapies help restore function to the damaged area of your brain? Will you need ongoing, perhaps lifetime, care to accomplish daily tasks?
  • Loss of income—this is what you’ve already lost due to the brain injury preventing you from working
  • Loss of future earning capacity—this includes compensation in the cases where mental, emotional, cognitive, or physical changes prohibit you from progressing in your career as you would have before the brain injury, or you are unable to work at all.
  • Pain and suffering and diminished quality of life—California is one of the few states that does not have a cap on non-economic damages. Although these can be hard to put a number on, victims of traumatic brain injuries are often in a position where it is appropriate to seek this type of compensation.

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!
