Have you been injured in a truck accident? Did a distracted driver cut you off and cause you to crash your motorcycle? Were you injured by a reckless driver while you were crossing the street? Did you slip and fall while on another person’s property? If so, you need a Sacramento personal injury attorney who has the experience, skills, and resources necessary to protect your legal right to recover compensation for your injuries.

When you are searching for a Sacramento personal injury lawyer, make sure you ask these three key questions:

Is there a deadline for me to take legal action for my personal injury claim?

This is one of the most important questions to ask a Sacramento personal injury attorney. The California statute of limitations restricts the time a person has to file a personal injury lawsuit. Statutes of limitations vary by state and by cause of action. In most personal injury cases, the California statute of limitations requires that you file a lawsuit within two years from the date of injury. Because there are exceptions to the statute of limitations, it is always important to consult with a personal injury attorney regardless of whether you think the time to file a lawsuit has expired. Do not delay — contact our office to discuss your claim with an attorney. It takes time to build a strong case; therefore, you want to call our office as soon as possible to schedule your free consultation.

How much is your fee?

Some attorneys require you to pay a retainer fee up front because they charge you by the hour. If this is the case, you need to continue looking for an attorney to represent you. Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers understand that money is tight. You are probably out of work and you are facing substantial costs because of the accident and your injuries. Our attorneys accept most cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not expect to be paid until we secure a settlement on your behalf. At that time, you pay an agreed-upon percentage of your settlement as our attorney fees.

Do you have trial experience?

While most personal injury claims settle out of court, some cases require the filing of a lawsuit. Even after a lawsuit is filed, we can still settle the case prior to a trial. However, your case may go all the way to a jury trial. If that happens, you want to ensure the Sacramento, Carmichael personal injury attorney you hire has the trial experience required to handle your case. Trying a case in a courtroom before a jury is much different from negotiating a settlement with an insurance company. The attorney you choose needs to be a skilled trial attorney in addition to being a savvy negotiator.

Have You Been Injured in an Accident?

Regardless of whether you are injured in a traffic accident, bicycle crash, pedestrian accident, slip and fall, or other personal injury, it is in your best interest to seek legal advice from an experienced Sacramento personal injury attorney.  To learn more about California personal injury law, call the Tiemann Law Firm at (916) 999-9000 or chat with a representative on our website to schedule a free case evaluation.

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.
