When you are injured in an accident caused by another person or entity, it is easy to become overwhelmed. You may be in severe pain and struggling to understand how these injuries are going to impact your life. In addition to the physical injuries and the emotional stress caused by the accident, you are also suffering financial losses, such as property damage, lost wages, and medical bills.

Discussing Your Injuries With Your Doctor

As you are going through your medical treatment, it is helpful to ask your doctor important questions about your injuries, recovery, and prognosis. The answers to these questions can help your Sacramento accident attorney as he investigates your case and prepares a demand for settlement.

Diagnosis and Extent of Injuries

It is crucial that you understand the extent of your injuries. You need to report all symptoms to your doctor as soon as possible because some injuries may not be immediately apparent following the accident. This is important to obtain a correct diagnosis and plan of treatment.  It is also important because the type and severity of your injury, as well as the treatment plan and length of recovery, impacts your settlement demand.

Time Off Work

If your physician states you should not work during your recovery, request a written note to your employer stating very clearly the dates you are to be out of work and the reason. Make a copy of this note before you give it to your employer. You should ask your doctor about work if he does not bring up the subject. It may be tempting to return to work early; however, doing so could jeopardize your health and your accident claim.  The insurance adjuster will argue your injury is worse because you failed to follow your doctor’s instructions.


As you progress through your treatment, your doctor will be able to give you a better idea whether you will recover fully from your injuries or if you will suffer permanent disabilities. This is important to know for your future medical and personal care and your accident claim. The value of your accident claim includes compensation for any future damages. In order to calculate future damages, we must have an accurate and detailed prognosis.


As you go through your medical treatment, keep all receipts, bills, invoices, and other evidence of your expenses related to the accident. Also, keep copies of all notes, statements, forms, and documents provided to you from all sources. We will request copies of medical records; however, you may have documents that are not included in your records. These documents could be very important for your case.

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!

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.
