Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers represent accident victims in claims arising from several different types of accidents. When another person is negligent or reckless, that person can be held liable for any damages if the wrongdoing causes another person to be injured. California’s personal injury laws protect accident victims by providing a way for victims to seek compensation for their injuries. However, you have a limited time to file a claim for damages. Therefore, we encourage you to contact our office for a free consultation with one of our Sacramento personal injury lawyers as soon as possible.

Common Personal Injury Accidents That Give  Rise to an Accident Claim

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common types of accidental injuries in Sacramento. Vehicle-related accidents, including crashes involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, pedestrians, and bicycles. According to the California OTS, Sacramento County motor vehicle accidents resulted in 11,170 deaths and injuries during 2015. The county ranked third out of 58 counties of similar size for the number of injuries and deaths that year. The City of Sacramento reported 4,502 deaths and injuries from traffic accidents during 2015, which ranked third out of 15 cities of similar size.

  • Premises Liability Accidents

Slips, trips, and falls account for thousands of injuries each year in the United States.  Some falls result in minor injuries such as bumps and bruises. However, falls can also result in broken bones, back injuries, and other traumatic injuries. Property owners can be held liable for damages for slip and fall accident for failing to maintain safe premises.

  • Dog Bites and Dog Attacks

A dog bite or dog attack can cause severe injuries, including nerve damage, PTSD, and scarring. California laws hold dog owners responsible when their dog bites or attacks another person. In many cases, you can recover compensation for your injuries, even though the dog may never have bitten another person.

  • Workplace Accidents

Accidents in the workplace account for a large number of the accidental injuries each year. Workplace injuries can result from an accident, hazardous material, dangerous conditions, or repetitive motions. In many cases, California’s workers’ compensation insurance covers a workplace injury. However, some injured workers may have a third party claim that could result in additional compensation for injuries.

  • Nursing Home Abuse

It is horrible to think that someone would abuse a nursing home patient or elderly individual. Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including physical abuse, financial abuse, neglect, verbal abuse, and emotional abuse. If you notice symptoms of nursing home abuse, you can contact the DSS Adult Protective Services agency in your county. In an emergency, you can call 911 to report the abuse immediately.

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!

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.

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.
