Many people file injury claims each day for accidents involving motor vehicles, falls, defective products, wrongful deaths, bicycle accidents, or dog attacks. However, should accident victims hire a Sacramento personal injury attorney to handle their injury claims? If you ask an insurance adjuster, the adjuster will likely tell you that you do not need an attorney and hiring an attorney will only mean less money for you. However, if you ask a personal injury lawyer, the lawyer is likely to tell you that you should always hire an attorney to file an injury claim.

The Sacramento personal injury attorneys of The Tiemann Law Firm have a different answer for you. We believe you should always seek the advice of a qualified, experienced personal injury attorney and then decide if you need to hire a lawyer. Our personal injury lawyers offer free consultations so that you can discuss your case with an attorney before hiring the attorney. There is nothing to lose by taking advantage of a free case review because you are under no obligation to hire our firm.

Advantages of Hiring a Sacramento Personal Injury Attorney

We encourage you to contact our office to discuss your injury. It is our goal to help you recover the compensation you deserve after a negligent individual or company caused your injury. As you consider contacting our office for your free consultation, also consider some of the advantages of hiring a personal injury attorney to file injury claims.

  • Most cases are handled on a contingency fee basis.

Therefore, you do not pay any attorney fees if we do not recover compensation for your injury claims.

  • An attorney understands the law involved in your case.

Some injury claims involve a set of complex laws. Your attorney understands these laws and the elements required by personal injury laws to prove fault and liability.

  • Your attorney handles the accident investigation.

If the other party denies liability, the accident investigation becomes a crucial step in the process of filing an accident claim. The attorney investigates to identify the parties responsible for the accident and to uncover evidence required to prove fault.

  • Hiring an attorney early in your case helps you avoid making costly mistakes and errors.

For example, your attorney will advise you not to provide a written or recorded statement to the insurance company for the other party. These statements can be used against you during your case to deny liability or undervalue your claim. Dealing directly with an insurance adjuster can be risky because the adjuster will use tactics such as obtaining a statement to protect the insurance company.

  • Discover the correct value of your accident claim.

The insurance adjuster is not going to tell you if you are not asking for enough money to settle your claim. He will also not tell you if his offer of settlement is fair or far below the actual value of your claim. A Sacramento personal injury attorney knows how to value a claim to maximize the amount of compensation you may receive for your injuries and damages.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

Herb T. Testimonial

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.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

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.
