Have you been injured in a car accident? Are you worried about how you will pay the medical bills? Who will reimburse you for your lost income and other expenses? How will you get another vehicle? These are just a few of the questions that may be keeping you awake at night. Our Sacramento car accident attorneys can answer these questions and other questions about a car accident claim.

We understand you may be frustrated and worried after a car accident. The insurance adjuster for the other driver may be telling you that you were partially at fault. He may be trying to convince you that you do not need an attorney. Do not trust the insurance adjuster for the other driver. He is not looking out for you. Trust our Sacramento car accident attorneys to do what is best for you, including searching for independent eyewitnesses to help build a strong case for compensation.

What Is An Independent Eyewitness?

When you are involved in car accident, you and the other driver are eyewitnesses to the collision. An eyewitness is a person who saw the car crash in “real time.” In other words, an eyewitness saw the crash as it was happening. Other passengers in your car or the other vehicle are also eyewitnesses. Each of you can testify about how the accident happened.

Unfortunately, your version of the facts may be dramatically different from the other driver. If you did not have a passenger, it might be your word against the other driver and his passenger. In this case, an independent eyewitness could be the key to proving the other driver was at fault for the collision.

An independent eyewitness is someone who saw the collision happen but was not in either vehicle.  The independent witness is not related to any of the drivers or passengers. This person was simply in the right place at the right time to see the crash take place.

How Can An Independent Eyewitness Help?

An independent eyewitness does not have any financial stake in the outcome of the case. Because an independent witness is not related to any of the parties in the crash and he does not have a financial interest in the case, his testimony about the accident is usually considered the most trustworthy and reliable.

If the other driver is claiming you caused the collision, an independent eyewitness can help you establish fault. When it is your word against the word of the other driver, an independent eyewitness can be the key to winning your case.

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!

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.
