When you are injured in an accident, you have certain rights under California’s personal injury laws. The specific laws applicable in your case may vary depending on the type of accident. However, some personal injury rights apply in all cases. Regardless of whether you are filing a claim under premises liability laws, wrongful death statutes, or liability injury laws, you deserve to be compensated.

The Sacramento personal injury attorneys of Tiemann Law Firm want you to know your rights before you speak to an insurance adjuster or other representative for the other party. Contact our office for a free consultation with one of our attorneys. We want to protect your best interests. We also want to help you recover the compensation you deserve from the negligent party who caused your injury.

Right to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer in Sacramento

Do not allow the insurance company to convince you that you do not need to consult with an attorney. The insurance company wants to settle your claim for as little money as possible if it cannot outright deny your claim. Therefore, it is in the best interest of the company for you to handle your claim without an attorney.

An attorney protects your interests against the interests of the insurance provider. The insurance company has a team of professionals working to protect its interests. You deserve a legal team standing with you to protect your legal right to a fair settlement for your claim.

Right to Refuse a Settlement Offer

You have the right to refuse a settlement offer that does not compensate you fully for all damages and losses for the accident. The insurance adjuster may offer you a quick settlement that is much lower than your claim is worth to dispose of the case. Accepting an offer means you cannot pursue any further action to recover compensation. This applies even if you discover additional injuries or losses.

A Sacramento injury lawyer understands how insurance companies process claims. Your attorney provides guidance and advice about settlement offers so that you can make an informed decision whether accepting the settlement offer is in your best interest.

Right to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

If the insurance company does not offer a reasonable settlement for your claim, you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit. The adjuster or other insurance representative may tell you that you do not have a “case.” However, that is a matter for a jury to decide. Always consult with a personal injury lawyer before accepting any settlement offers or signing any documents for an insurance company.

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!

Maye Ly Testimonial

I just saw my lawyer Jelena Tiemann on a t.v ad, which reminded me how much she helped when I was in a desperate situation. I just love her! That is why I feel a need to tell everyone. I had a situation that happened & didn’t know what to do, our where to go. I didn’t even know if she could help me or if any lawyer could. All I wanted was it to go away & was afraid most lawyers wanted to drag it out & possibly go to court. For one she was very professional but was very personable (maybe b.c she’s a lady). She didn’t make me feel embarrassed or self-conscious that I did something wrong or was the cause of the situation. She immediately said we should try our best before going to court. Let me handle some paperwork, if at the last we do go to court we have documents. She gave me all the details, pros and cons but reassured me she deals with these cases all the time. She came through and made it as painless as possible. I now have my life back.
