Steps to Take After Holiday Accidents

The steps you take after holiday accidents are important. Some of the things that you do after holiday accidents increase your chance of receiving full compensation for your damages and injuries. However, some of the things that you do after holiday accidents could harm your chance of recovering full compensation.

Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers recommend that you take the following steps, whenever possible, after being injured in an accident:

  • Report the accident and injury immediately. Call 911 for traffic accidents and report falls or other injuries on another person’s property to the property owner. Contact animal control or law enforcement agencies to report dog attacks.
  • Don’t delay seeking medical care for your injuries. Seeing a doctor as quickly as possible protects your health, but it also helps with your personal injury claim by documenting your accident injuries.
  • Try to document the accident scene by taking photographs, making a video, and asking eyewitnesses for their names and contact numbers.
  • Don’t talk to an insurance company before you speak with our Sacramento personal injury lawyers. The insurance company typically records all conversations, even if they do not tell you they are doing so. What you say to an insurance company could have a huge impact on the case.
  • Keep detailed records of your expenses and financial losses related to holiday accidents. Also, keep notes about your physical pain, emotional distress, and other details related to how your injuries impact your life after the accident.
  • As soon as possible, schedule a free case review with one of our Sacramento personal injury attorneys. Our lawyers can provide additional advice regarding your accident claim, options for recovering compensation for your claim, and steps to take to protect your legal rights.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive for My Accident Claim?

The value of your accident claim depends on several factors, including but not limited to:

  • Your injuries;
  • Amount of financial losses;
  • Whether you sustained permanent impairments;
  • Available insurance coverage;
  • Your responsibility for the accident; and,
  • The laws that apply to your personal injury claim.

Our legal team works diligently to investigate holiday accidents to determine liability and gather evidence proving fault. We also work with clients to gather evidence proving damages to maximize the amount they can receive for their injury claims.

We understand that money does not undo the harm caused by a negligent or careless person. However, we also understand that compensation can help pay for ongoing medical care, counseling, and other treatment. It can also compensate you for the financial losses incurred because of the accident. Therefore, we fight for maximum compensation in every case.

Client Testimonials

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.

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!

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.
