School will soon be out for the summer, which means more youngsters and teens taking their bikes on the road. Unfortunately, CA consistently has some of the highest numbers of bicycle accidents and fatalities. Keep your child safe while biking this summer with these tips:

  • Studies show most biking accidents take place in urban areas. Lack of dedicated bike lanes and distracted drivers increase the risk for young cyclers. Help your children pick the routes to their friends’ homes or other locations they want to travel to that have the least amount of traffic.
  • Dress your children in brightly colored tops and tell them not to assume a driver sees them. Teach them proper hand signals for turning. Unfortunately, many drivers are not cognizant enough of their surroundings and may miss a small cyclist.
  • A large number of biking accidents happen at dusk. If your child or teen is riding at this hour, get them gear with reflective tape and equip their bike with reflectors.
  • Make sure your youngster travels with their cell phone with your number as the ICE (in case of emergency) contact. Instruct them what to do if they are involved in a biking accident. If they can, the first action should be to move out of the road to safety, call 911 and you.

In the case of a bike versus car accident, the bicyclist usually sustains more significant injuries. If your child is involved in a biking accident, take them to the emergency room, walk-in clinic, or their pediatrician as soon as possible after the accident, even if they don’t seem to have any serious injuries. Getting them evaluated medically will help detect any internal or other non-visible injuries, and record the care you may need in the future. An experienced attorney will explain your rights and help you decide the best course of action for your child’s case. If you have any questions regarding a bike accident and your child, don’t hesitate to contact us.

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.

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...

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!

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.
