How expensive is it to hire an attorney for my personal injury case?

At Tiemann Law Firm, we understand that if you have been involved in a serious accident that resulted in injuries you are facing some financial uncertainty. We know the last thing you want to think about is having yet another bill laying on your table, wondering how you are going to be able to pay for it. At Tiemann Law Firm we provide all prospective clients with a free initial consultation. We can review the merits of your case and give you legal advice on your options and the best course of action. It may also give you peace of mind to know that we never charge you legal fees until we win your case, and you are compensated. That means no additional bills while we are building your case. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation by calling (916) 999-9000.

Will insurance cover my accident?

The answer depends on the type and circumstances of the accident. We like to remind clients that insurance companies are for-profit entities. They want to keep the money they have and increase their bottom-line. Paying out large settlements for accident claims can eat into that profit, so it is in their best interest to pay out as little as reasonably possible following an accident. They are looking out for their best interests, not yours. Having an attorney on your side greatly increases your chances of negotiating a fair compensation package. Unfortunately, it takes having an attorney to demonstrate to many companies that you are serious about recovering damages and that you won’t stand for being taken advantage of.


The attorneys at Tiemann Law Firm will aggressively protect your rights and negotiate on your behalf to get the compensation you deserve from an insurance company or negligent party. For a free consultation contact us at (916) 999-9000.

How much is my personal injury claim worth?

The answer depends on a number of factors. Typically, a compensation package will include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are fairly easy to identify and tabulate. Economic damages include medical bills, lost wages or income, and property damage. You may also be able to recover non-economic damages which tend to be more subjective and include things pain and suffering, disfigurement, or loss of companionship. Determining what your claim is worth means taking a detailed look into both the type of accident and the circumstances that contributed to the accident. While personal injury law is covered under one umbrella, the rules outlining compensation can vary depending on the type of accident involved.

Do I Have A Personal Injury Case?

If you are injured, you should consult with our office immediately. An injury case requires two things (1) Liability and (2) Damages. We will review your case to determine who is liable for injuring you and how much money you may be entitled to for your damages. Our consultation is free and there is no obligation.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you don’t have a case. If we determine that someone is liable for injuring you and you have suffered damages, under the California law you are entitled to be compensated.

If you have any questions regarding your personal injury case contact one of our Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyers now. And remember, all questions and consultations are free. There is never a charge until we win your case and get you compensated.

Should I Call The Police Following a Collision?

One of the greatest mistakes people make following a collision is not calling the police. However, if you have just been in a collision and have not filed a police report it may not be too late. You should still go down to the police department and file a police report today. In fact, several police departments may even allow you to go online and file a police report. It is never too late to file a police report, but the sooner the better.

This traffic collision report may be very helpful for you following a collision. One of the many benefits that come from calling an officer is basic traffic collision documentation. For example, one standard practice of an officer is to take the names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information of the people involved in the collision and any potential witnesses. Obviously, this would include the at fault driver and in addition to his name and contact information it will generally also include his insurance information. This insurance information provides you the information you will need to set up your property damage and injury claim. Having the information about the insurance of the party at fault in the police report will speed up the process of setting up your claim.

Additionally, the witness contact information in the traffic collision report will allow you, or your attorney to follow up with the witnesses and obtain further statements if that is necessary.

The traffic collision report will also contain critical witness statements regarding the collision. Many times the at fault driver is interviewed by the police officer at the scene and may simply admit that he wasn’t paying attention, or will admit that the collision is his fault. Again these statements regarding the cause of the collision are critical to your claim.

In some instances, the at fault driver after he leaves the scene of the accident will change his mind and will make statements to his own insurance company that the collision might not have been his fault.

In those instances having the police officer at the scene documenting all witnesses statements, including the at fault drivers statements admitting fault will be invaluable in proving your claim, if the at fault driver ever tries to change his story.

Again, it is always the best practice to call the police when in a car accident, regardless of the damage to the vehicles and your injuries

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.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

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!

Jereme S. Testimonial

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

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.

Matt H. Testimonial

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.

Jennifer Birdseye Testimonial
