If you walk to and from work or enjoy walking after work for relaxation and exercise, you should know that this time of year can mean more dangers for pedestrians. It’s due to the days getting shorter and the evening coming earlier. The greatest number of pedestrian accidents and fatalities occur between 3-6 p.m.

In accidents between motor vehicles and pedestrians, the pedestrian always suffers the most harm. These types of accidents are often caused by negligence—meaning someone has not exercised the proper care or acted responsibly in a situation. Some examples of negligent behavior that commonly result in pedestrian accidents include:

  • Distracted driving—the driver is doing something such as fiddling with the radio or talking on a cell phone, which takes their eyes or attention off the road.
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs—greatly impedes judgment, focus, and reaction time
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving—such as changing lanes erratically or too quickly or failing to use appropriate signals
  • Failing to stop at a stop sign or running a red light

Regardless of the cause of a pedestrian accident, if you are the victim of one, you are likely to suffer serious injuries and may be confused about how to proceed.

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!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

My husband and I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us and our family. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and time you have put into my case, we greatly appreciate it and your friendship. We highly recommend this firm and will always be thankful for everything they have done. Thank you so much again, Kim

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.
