Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a very serious injury that can occur as the result of an automobile, truck, motorcycle or other accident. A TBI can alter your life forever and leave you with a long-term need of treatment and other lifestyle modifications which can be very costly. An insurance company will want to minimize your TBI. Our experienced attorneys will help you build a solid case proving the extent and severity of your injury. Below are three effective ways you can help:

  1. Keep a log of your symptoms. Depending on the area of the brain that is injured, TBIs can affect many physical, cognitive, and emotional activities. Some symptoms may be obvious right away, while others may emerge more gradually. Signs of a TBI can include headaches, dizziness, memory loss, fatigue and sleep disruptions, difficulty concentrating or processing information, loss of coordination or bodily functions, anxiety, depression, inappropriate social behaviors and so much more. Write down your symptoms in a log or diary. Include the date, what the symptoms are, and their severity.
  2. Be communicative with your doctors. Not only are your medical providers better able to help you the more specific the information you give them, but they are also a chief source of proof of your TBI and its effect on your body. Be sure to tell your doctor all your symptoms. It’s also important that you follow all of the doctor’s treatment instructions and not miss any appointments.
  3. Ask for the help and support you need. If you are having trouble understanding the doctor’s instructions or need help in executing them or in any other areas, be sure to ask. There are many support services and groups available that can provide assistance to someone with a TBI and their family. The road to recovery and also to successfully completing your legal battle can be long. Taking care of yourself and your family to the best of your ability is essential.

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.

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.
