Get ready for the biggest travel day of the year! Yes, gas prices are at a record high, but air travel is worse and with coronavirus risk significantly decreased, many drivers are expected to take to the road to get to their Thanksgiving destination. This means an increased chance of car accidents. Below are some risks to be aware of:

  • The Late Family—there’s bound to be extra cars and traffic jams on the way to “grandmother’s house” for the big feast. Those families who don’t build extra time into their schedule may be speeding and taking unnecessary risks to shave a few seconds off their trip.
  • The Overachiever—this driver left his home way before the sun was up so he could make the long 14-hour drive to his turkey spot in only one day. It’s likely as the sun is high in the sky (and possibly in his eyes) that he’ll start to nod off and may drift into your lane or worse, your car.
  • The Mom with Cranky Kids—taking her eyes off the road even for just a couple of seconds to send some more snacks or a new DVD into the back seat to calm fidgeting little ones is all it takes for an accident to happen.
  • The Grandpa that Shouldn’t Be Driving—lots of cars, quick lane changes and unexpected detours can shake up an older driver. Reaction times aren’t what they used to be, and when a hazard suddenly appears in front of them, they may not be able to make the necessary adjustments in time.
  • The Trucker Who Wants to Make it Home for Thanksgiving—everyone’s pressed for time and more frenzied at the holidays. This can lead to shortcuts on loading a truck or maintenance that may result in an accident.
  • Too Much Spiked Apple Cider—it’s a time of celebration, but sometimes drivers who’ve had too much of a good alcoholic beverage make the mistake of getting behind the wheel with devastating consequences.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

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...
