Tips on How to Hire a Medical Malpractice Attorney in Sacramento, California

Every day we depend on healthcare professionals to help us when we are sick or injured. We would never expect that the very doctors we depend on for our good health would actually make a mistake that could cause us more harm. Unfortunately mistakes are made and when this does happen to you or a loved one you need an experienced medical malpractice attorney to defend your rights. We have provided helpful tips here on how to find and hire a good medical malpractice lawyer in California.

First of all never rush in selecting a medical malpractice attorney. Take some extra time now to interview them to make sure that they are the best attorney for you. There are many important qualities to look for in an attorney. Here’s some factors to consider:

  • Do they have a proven track record representing medical malpractice claims like yours?
  • Do you have confidence in the attorney’s ability to guide you through the case?
  • Do you think that you can work with this attorney for an extended period of time?
  • Can they provide you with an educated estimate on your case value?
  • Will they charge you legal fees that are within industry standards?

How can you find a California medical malpractice lawyer

One of the best ways to find a good lawyer is to get a referral from friends and family. Social media is also a good way to ask many people at once. More than likely someone you know, knows someone that has used a good attorney at one time or another. Even if the medical malpractice lawyer you find doesn’t live near you they will usually be able to refer you to a good one in your area. You can also contact our Sacramento malpractice attorneys for a free no obligation case evaluation.

Questions to ask a Sacramento Medical Malpractice Attorney

When you first meet to interview a potential medical malpractice attorney for your case your will want to prepare some important questions for them. Make sure to focus on the critical questions that will help you determine if they will be the best attorney for your case like:

  • How long have you been practicing law and want is your firms primary practice area?
  • How many medical malpractice cases have you represented in Sacramento?
  • What are some of the strategies you have used in malpractice cases like mine?
  • Have you ever handled a case exactly like mine?
  • What are your fees if we settle the case or if it ends up going to a jury trial?
  • What do you think the value of my malpractice claim will be?
  • Can I speak to any former clients of yours?

Another important area of questions is how well will the attorney and their staff communicate with your during your case. Keep in mind that many medical malpractice cases can go on for months if not years. You will want to ask some questions about the attorney’s communications standards like:

  • Are you available after hours to discuss important matters as they occur?
  • How quickly do you and your staff return phone calls?
  • Who will I be primarily working with once the case begins?

After meeting with multiple Sacramento malpractice attorneys you will want to determine which one will be best qualified for your claim. Review all the candidates and the answers they provided you. Try to determine which one will most likely represent you in the most professional manner. If you still can’t decide between a few attorney candidates call some of their former clients to get a better idea of which one is the better malpractice attorney for you. Making the right decision now could be the difference of many thousands of dollars in the compensation you get.

Michael T. Testimonial

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.

Herb T. Testimonial

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.

Jennifer T. Testimonial

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.

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!

Star Fire Testimonial

It is hard to put into words the care and dedication that I received from the Tiemann’s. They have been here for me every step of the way and were always available when I had questions or concerns. My husband and I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us and our family. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and time you have put into my case, we greatly appreciate it and your friendship. We highly recommend this firm and will always be thankful for everything they have done. Thank you so much again, Kim

Jereme S. Testimonial

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.

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.

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.

Jennifer Birdseye Testimonial

Tiemann Law Firm helped us with an injury case for my nephew. They were very knowledgeable and we are very happy with the service they provided. The entire staff is topnotch!
