If you are in a car crash, slip and fall accident, bicycle crash, commercial truck accident, or other type of personal injury accident, you will probably be contacted by the insurance company for the other party fairly quickly. You may think, “Oh how nice, the insurance company wants to make sure I am okay and I receive a fair settlement for my client.”  In most cases, you are wrong. Insurance companies are not working for your best interest.

Insurance companies, their employees, and their attorneys are not evil but the insurance company is in business to make money and you cannot make money by paying large accident claims. The employees and the attorneys are simply doing their job by protecting the best interest of the insurance company. You deserve a team of legal professionals on your side to protect your best interest. The personal injury attorneys of the Tiemann Law Firm will fight against the insurance company to ensure you receive a fair and just settlement.

Why You Should Not Deal Directly With Insurance Companies?

The insurance company for the other person will attempt to convince you that you do not need an attorney. Reasons why you need an attorney include:

Experience and Attorneys

Even if this is not your first accident, the insurance adjuster handling your claim has far more experience. In most cases, the adjuster has handled hundreds if not thousands of claims and knows exactly what to do to lower the amount you receive for your claim. The insurance company also employs teams of attorneys with experience finding ways to protect the insurance company and lower your compensation.

Your Claim Hurts The Insurance Company’s Bottom Line

Insurance companies are in business to make a profit. They do so by increasing revenues and decreasing costs. Insurance claims are one of the largest expenses for an insurance company; therefore, it will do whatever it can to avoid paying a claim or it will pay as little as possible to settle a claim.

The Insurance Company Has More Resources

If you are representing yourself, you do not have the same access to expert witnesses, evidence, funding, and personnel as the insurance company. You are going up against a multi-million dollar company with substantial resources. Hiring a personal injury attorney gives you resources to fight for what is right.

Your Insurance Company Cannot Be Trusted

Even if you are dealing with your own insurance company, its interest is still opposite of your interest. You are a customer when you are paying your premiums and purchasing new products; however, you are a liability when you file an insurance claim. Your insurance company will work just as hard to reduce the amount it must pay to you as it does when dealing with other injured victims.

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.

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.
