Summer is the perfect season for taking walks and enjoying the beautiful California weather and scenery, but walkers must be aware of the increased risk of pedestrian accidents. The Governor’s Highway Safety Association projected 7,485 pedestrians killed in traffic accidents in 2021—an 11.5% increase from 2020 and the largest number of pedestrian deaths in four decades. California is taking active steps to reduce pedestrian traffic injuries and fatalities, such as participation in Vision Zero (an international movement to eliminate pedestrian fatalities), reduced speed limits in school zones, and the use of lidar—a technology that can react to stimulus in real-time and make adjustments to traffic lights in intersections to prevent accidents. Despite these efforts, however, our state continues to have many pedestrian injuries and deaths.

Expert Help for Pedestrian Accident Victims

Injuries are often severe when a pedestrian is struck by a motor vehicle. Concussions, traumatic brain injuries, shattered bones, and damage to the spinal cord can result in long and extensive rehabilitation and even permanent disability. Our experienced attorneys will work hard to ensure you get the damages you’re entitled to. Steps an attorney will take include:

  • Conducting a thorough and independent investigation of your accident.
  • Collect all forms of evidence, including photographs, accident reports, medical records, and other available materials pertinent to your case.
  • Interviewing witnesses who were at the scene when the accident occurred.
  • Handling all communications with insurance companies and other attorneys involved in the case.

Once all the supporting evidence proving negligence on the part of the driver is compiled, your lawyer will fight aggressively for a fair and reasonable settlement to cover your current and future medical expenses and the pain and suffering you’ve endured, if applicable. We’re prepared to take your case to court if a settlement cannot be reached.

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!

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.
