If you’ve been involved in a car accident that was caused by a driver who was drunk or under the influence of drugs, you may be facing an overwhelming set of challenges. Recovering from your injuries, dealing with damaged property, and maybe even a lost or impaired ability to work coupled with emotional trauma can leave a victim feeling helpless. Even seeing a drunk driver go to jail may bring little comfort and practical aid to your situation. At Tiemann Law Firm, we want you to know that you are not alone and that help is available.

Getting the Compensation You Are Entitled To

Your first step after an accident caused by a drunk or drug-impaired driver is to get medical treatment. Even if you don’t think you’ve sustained any major injuries, getting evaluated by a medical professional will protect you in case injuries become evident after the accident and also establish a medical record connected to the accident.

Next, you must contact an attorney with experience pursuing this type of case. Our lawyers will conduct their own investigation of your case and inform you of your rights and the best way to pursue the damages you are entitled to. They can also help you tabulate your current and future expenses and loss of income and determine if you are eligible to seek compensation for pain and suffering.

Other Help May be Available

You may not see drunk driving as a violent crime, but the U.S. government does. As a victim, you are entitled to the same referrals for services, support, and resources as victims of other violent crimes. You may also be able to apply for state crime victim compensation programs to help find coverage for medical care and counseling. To learn more, visit the U.S. Office for Victims of Crime.

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.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

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.

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!
