Your case value can vary greater for a personal injury in Sacramento depending on several factors?

The value of every injury case will be based on the damages an injured person suffered in the injury-causing event. Damages in a Sacramento personal injury case will consist of three general categories: medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In a case where the plaintiff’s injury involves an injury where the person will have to be retrained for a different job, as a result of the injury, the costs of the retraining will also be recoverable. Predicting the value of any personal injury case is very difficult.

There are many different factors that can affect how much you may receive for an injury. An experienced injury attorney may be able to give you a very general idea of the value of your case based on the specifics of your particular situation. Since all we do is practice injury and accident law, our lawyers are generally able to give our clients a settlement range that they can reasonably expect after we have all the information from your personal injury case.

The value of your injury case will depend on numerous factors. Some of those factors will include a discussion of how strong fault is in your case, how clear is the connection between your injuries and the accident, what is the severity of your injuries, how much insurance is available, what is the cost of medical care in your case, what was the cost of the emergency medical care, did you have any health insurance that paid your medical bills, what is the quality of the evidence in your case, are the witnesses in your favor believable, how much emergency medical care did you receive, are there any photographs of the damage to the vehicles involved and how severe do they portray the collision, did any of the parties admit fault in any type of filed Sacramento police or incident report, and are there any type of aggravating factors such as the person was under the influence at the time of the accident, or the person was using a cell phone or otherwise not being careful at the time of the accident.

This discussion of factors will also include the location of where the case will be located. For example, if the case can be heard in a city, like downtown Sacramento the venue is viewed as more favorable towards plaintiffs. On the other hand, if the case is expected to be based in a more conservative county, then it may have an effect on the settlement value of the case. This is a consistent factor all across the country- juries typically award more money in urban locations than they do in a rural location.

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!
