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.

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...

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!
