It is a parent’s worst nightmare — your child is injured in an accident. Seeing your child in pain and not being able to stop that pain is devastating.  When the pain is caused by a preventable accident, it is also extremely frustrating and infuriating.

If your child has been injured in an accident, you may have a cause of action against one or more parties. To determine if your child is entitled to receive compensation for a personal injury claim, consult with an experienced Sacramento personal injury attorney. Call our office at (916) 999-9000 to speak with an experienced Sacramento personal injury attorney.

Common Accident Cases Involving Children

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Children can be injured in car accidents just like adults. It is important to have your child checked by a doctor as soon as possible after a car accident. Closed head injuries are common in car accidents and very difficult to diagnose because there may be no outward trauma to the head. Regardless of the severity of the car accident, always seek medical attention for yourself and your child to protect your child’s health and your right to receive compensation from the other driver.

Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents

Children do not use as much caution when riding their bicycles and crossing the road as adults do in the same situation. One of the best ways to prevent bicycle and pedestrian accidents is to set a good example and to teach your child about bicycle and pedestrian safety.  A good source for information that parents can use is Safe Kids.

Pool Accidents

Pool accidents involving children can have devastating consequences. Property owners, both public and private, must take steps to prevent children from entering the pool, even if a child is trespassing. Also, pool owners must take steps to prevent water-transmitted diseases and other injuries. If your child is injured in a pool accident, don’t assume it is your child’s fault. Consult a Sacramento personal injury attorney to determine if your child should be compensated by the pool’s owner for his or her injuries.

Dog Bites and Animal Attacks

Children are very vulnerable for dog bites and animal attacks because they don’t know how to defend themselves and/or they are unable to defend themselves in an attack. Teach your children about animal safety and seek immediate medical attention for any animal bite. A small bite can result in infections, permanent nerve damage, and scarring.  In most cases, the owner of the animal is liable for damages if the animal bites or attacks your child.  Therefore, seek legal counsel from a Sacramento personal injury attorney to discuss your options for legal action.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Children fall — that is just a fact of life. However, sometimes the fall is not just an accident. If a property owner allows an unsafe or hazardous condition to remain on the property, your child may have a legal course of action if he or she falls and is injured. Discuss the accident with an attorney to determine if you have a valid personal injury claim.

Client Testimonials

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.

S.B. Testimonial

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

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.

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!
