Our Areas of Practice

Personal Injury

Personal injury law covers a wide range of accidents and injuries. Our San Jose personal injury law firm is dedicated to helping accident victims and their families seek justice from the negligent and reckless parties that caused the injury. In most personal injury claims, accident victims and their families can recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income, property damages, mental anguish, permanent disabilities, and physical pain.

The compensation available in a case depends on several factors. While no two personal injury cases are alike, we treat each case with the same level of dedication and diligence as we fight for full compensation of all damages.

Examples of the types of personal injury cases our San Jose personal injury attorneys handle include:

Your time to file a personal injury claim is limited by California’s statute of limitations. Do not let a negligent driver, property owner, manufacturer, or other party get away with their actions. Let us help you fight for your legal right to compensation for your damages.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a form of personal injury law. When a physician, hospital, or other medical provider causes an injury through negligence, carelessness, or recklessness, that person can be held liable for damages. The injured party can seek compensation for damages, including loss of income, medical expenses, physical pain, and emotional suffering. However, awards in medical malpractice claims are slightly different from awards in personal injury claims.

California’s Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) limits the amount of money a victim can receive for pain and suffering.  Under a general personal injury claim, a jury can award any amount for pain and suffering damages. The pain and suffering damages in a medical malpractice claim are limited to $250,000 because of MICRA. The jury can award compensation for other damages separate from the pain and suffering damages.

Our San Jose medical malpractice attorneys understand the laws that govern these cases. We fight to hold medical providers accountable when they make mistakes that result in injuries and wrongful deaths.

Our San Jose law firm also handles whistleblower cases. A whistleblower is a person with evidence or knowledge of wrongdoing by an organization. The illegal acts that are usually the focus of whistleblower cases involve corruption and fraud. A whistleblower can be an employee, former employee, or others who have access to a company’s information. In many cases, when an employee reports a company’s wrongdoing, the company fires the employee or threatens to fire the employee. Terminating an individual’s employment because that person reported illegal acts or violations to the appropriate government agency is illegal.

If you believe you have information about illegal acts or fraud, contact our San Jose law firm immediately. Our whistleblower attorneys are here to provide support and guidance. The decision to become a whistleblower should be made carefully under the guidance and with the help of an experienced attorney. Call our office today to speak with an attorney to discuss your situation. We offer a free review of your case. What you say is confidential and protected by attorney-client privilege.

Client Testimonials

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!

Matt H. Testimonial

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.
