School will soon be out, so more teen drivers will be on the road. California has several restrictions in place aimed at helping reduce distractions for teen drivers. During the first 12 months after getting a license, a minor driver may not:

  • Transport passengers under the age of 20 unless accompanied by a licensed parent or another driver over the age of 25
  • Use a cell phone or any communication device—including hands-free devices—while driving

However, teens are not the only distracted drivers on the road. Recent studies indicate that older drivers take their eyes off the road for longer periods of time than younger ones when trying to fiddle with some of the high-tech features of newer cars. Add to this the number of tourists and vacation travelers trying to find their way to some of our outstanding attractions and the general carefree mindset summer brings, and you can see how the distractions while driving can quickly multiply at this time of the year.

Distracted Driving Accidents are Devastating

A car accident is likely to occur when drivers are not focused on the road and the drivers around them for any reason. Unfortunately, these accidents can be particularly severe because the driver does not see a change in circumstances on the road, and so has no time to react or take evasive action leading to a crash with maximum impact.

Summertime Means More Distractions on the Road

Distracted driving accidents can cause unexpected short and long-term hardships, both physically and financially. If you’ve been involved in an accident caused by a distracted driver, one of your first calls after getting the medical attention you need should be to an experienced attorney.

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.
