Possible Compensation You Could Recover for a Personal Injury

Whether you decide to file an insurance claim or lawsuit, you could receive the compensation necessary to cover any losses suffered from the accident, such as:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Physical impairment or disfigurement

You can also seek exemplary damages if you proceed with a lawsuit during your case. This form of compensation aims to punish the defendant for their misconduct and deter similar wrongdoings in the future. State law requires you to provide clear and convincing evidence of the defendant’s malice, fraud, or oppression to receive this financial award.

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

In California, you must follow a statute of limitations to file a lawsuit against another person or company. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years. That means you have two years from the date of the accident to initiate your lawsuit in civil court. If the deadline passes and you file a lawsuit anyway, the judge will likely dismiss your case.

You could potentially toll the statute if your personal injury case meets one of these requirements:

  • You were under a legal disability at the time of the incident, meaning you were under 18 years old or deemed mentally incompetent. The two-year statute would not begin until you gain mental competency or turn 18.
  • The defendant leaves the state before you file your lawsuit. The running of the two-year clock would pause temporarily and start again once the defendant returns to the state.

Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

The Folsom personal injury lawyers of Tiemann Law Firm understand the overwhelming battle you face. It can be a significant challenge to hold someone accountable for their negligence and attempt to secure the compensation you need to pay for your medical treatment and other expenses.

We know you need guidance to get through this difficult time in your life. Below are the most common questions clients ask us about their personal injury cases, so you feel prepared for what’s to come.

How much does a personal injury lawyer in Folsom charge?

Tiemann Law Firm understands the financial implications of a personal injury. You’re already paying medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and other costs associated with the accident. You might worry about the economic burden of also paying for legal fees.

We don’t want you to struggle with the cost of seeking legal representation. That’s why we take cases on contingency. That means there are no upfront fees or costs when you hire us. We don’t expect any payment from our clients unless we recover compensation on their behalf.

Will my case settle during an insurance claim?

Whether the insurance company provides an adequate settlement will depend on the circumstances of the accident you were involved in. Most personal injury cases settle out of court. However, some require proceeding with a lawsuit to recover the money owed to the victim. We will review the facts of your case to determine what we can do to try to reach your desired result.

Am I entitled to compensation even if I were partially at fault for the accident?

It’s possible to receive compensation for the losses you suffered if your actions contributed to your injuries. However, you could end up with an amount reduced by your percentage of shared fault under the pure comparative negligence statute.

For example, if you suffered $100,000 in losses, but the jury assigns you with 20% fault for the accident, you could only receive a maximum of $80,000 in compensation.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
