How long does it take you to commute to work? Do you dread getting in your vehicle every morning and every evening? Do you leave home earlier than necessary just to avoid some of the traffic of rush hour?

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Americans spend an average of 25 minutes commuting to work each day. For some, a 25-minute commute sounds like a dream, especially for those who are locked in the gridlock of rush hour. A 25-minute commute can quickly turn into an hour or longer if there is an accident or just heavy traffic.

When some drivers are stuck in traffic caused by rush hour, they become agitated and aggressive. These drivers begin weaving in and out of traffic, follow too closely, or engage in other acts of road rage. Therefore, rush hour increases your risk of being involved in a traffic accident because many drivers lose their patience and become negligent, reckless drivers. Some drivers may not drive aggressively on purpose, but they become frustrated with the rush hour traffic and forget to be cautious.

If you have been injured in a rush hour accident, call (916) 999-9000 to schedule a free appointment with a Sacramento rush hour accident attorney.

Holding a Driver Responsible for A Rush Hour Car Accident

Regardless of the traffic, all drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a safe manner. When a careless or negligent driver causes a rush hour accident, that driver should be held responsible for the damages he or she causes. Accident victims can suffer serious injuries that result in thousands of dollars in medical costs. In addition to the medical costs, accident victims suffer other damages including lost wages, property damage, emotional suffering, and physical pain.

To recover compensation for a rush hour car accident, you must file a claim against the other driver’s insurance. You must prove that the other driver did something to cause the collision and you sustained injuries because of the crash. If you cannot prove liability for the crash, you cannot recover compensation for your damages.

Therefore, it is important that you retain an experienced Sacramento car accident attorney as quickly as possible to help you gather the evidence you need to prove responsibility in a rush hour car accident. You deserve to be made financially whole again after a car accident and be compensated for your pain and suffering.

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.

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!
