Truck accidents are traumatic. When a 3,000-pound car is in a crash with an 80,000-pound truck the results can be catastrophic. The physical injuries and mental trauma can leave you debilitated and not knowing what to do next. That’s where a our attorneys come in. Here are three reasons why you should contact one as soon as possible after your accident occurs:

  1. Clarify your options — Your mind is probably going in a million different directions at this point and there are lots of players involved in an accident settlement. You may hear from insurance companies, the trucking company or others who have an interest in your case. There are large sums of money involved, including what you’ll need to cover your current and future medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering. An attorney who’s handled this type of case before can help you better understand what your future financial needs might be, and also what your options are with regard to settlements and court cases.
  2. Avoid evidence being lost or destroyed — Physical evidence and reports concerning your case are best collected as close to the accident as possible. An attorney will conduct an independent investigation of your accident and collect evidence that may be essential in winning your case before it disappears, gets lost or destroyed.
  3. Beat statute of limitations — Many accident victims don’t realize there’s a time limit to file a lawsuit in the state of California. Legal claims must be made within two years of the date of the accident. If you exceed this limit your case will most likely be dismissed, and you will lose your chance to recover the compensation you deserve.

Don’t try to navigate the complex legal system on your own. We’re here for you, and will do our best to see you receive the damages you’re entitled to.

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

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.
