A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be among the most devastating types of injuries one can receive. Think about it (even to do that requires your brain!)—no part of your body, no thought or action occurs without your brain’s cooperation. Because TBIs can have a wide range of effects on your body and the complex manner in which they manifest, it can be difficult to determine the type and amount of compensation you and your family will need. That’s why it’s in your best interest to have an experienced Sacramento brain injury attorney on your side to help make your case clear and enable you to get the damages to which you are rightfully entitled. Below are some common questions regarding TBIs.

What exactly constitutes a traumatic brain injury?

A TBI is any injury to the brain after birth that is not genetic, congenital, or the result of a degenerative condition such as Alzheimer’s or dementia.

How do TBIs occur?

Brain injuries are most often caused by a blow or bump to the head or an object piercing the skull that is traumatic enough to disrupt normal brain function. This type of injury can occur in various circumstances, including car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian, slip and fall, and other accidents.

What are the possible effects of a TBI?

Your brain controls so many different functions in your body. A TBI can have a negative impact on cognitive (memory loss, learning issues, attention problems), emotional (mood swings, temper outbursts, anxiety), or physical (headaches, loss of bladder/bowel control, impaired mobility) functions.

Do TBIs cause permanent damage?

TBI can result in temporary, long-term, and, in some cases, permanent changes in abilities. Testing, medical treatments, and therapies can all be necessary for healing or remaining maximizing abilities and developing compensatory strategies. It is why the expenses associated with TBIs can be so high.

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.

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.

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!
