On this blog, it is rare that we get the opportunity to report on good news relating to personal injury cases in and around Sacramento CA. However, the return of Omar Rafi to his home after a three-month hospital stay following a catastrophic accident is one such piece of positive news.

The 10-year-old Rafi was seriously injured after he and his father were hit while riding their bikes close to their apartment building on Edison Avenue in Sacramento. The crash happened when a car driven by a 25-year-old Sacramento resident veered off the road and into the bike lane, apparently as a result of the driver looking down to check a text message on his phone.

Tragically, Rafi’s 33-year-old father was killed in the accident. The boy was rushed to the hospital where he spent two months in an induced coma and another month learning how to walk again. Now, the boy has returned home. “In the beginning all I hoped is at he’d open his eyes and say ‘Mom,’” his mother Mulalai said. According to his family, Rafi is back playing with friends and other kids in the neighborhood.

The 10-year-old boy still walks with a limp, and a piece of his skull is still missing; he has to have to wear a protective helmet until surgeons can operate again in a few months. Additionally, him and his family are still dealing with the aftermath of the accident. “I’m grateful my son is home but it would’ve been much better if my husband could be here with us” Mulalai said.For our part, we are glad the young boy has been returned to his family, and hope it is the start of a long but successful recovery period for all of those involved. No matter the outcome, however, we are also reminded of the deep wounds left by Sacramento car accidents which happen because of the negligence of drunk or distracted drivers.The experienced Sacramento car accident attorneys of the Tiemann Law Firm are dedicated to helping those in our community deal with the aftermath of serious wrecks and catastrophic injuries.

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!
