We’ve officially entered the 100 Deadliest Days of the year—between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when there is a serious increase in fatal car crashes, especially among teenage drivers. Other factors associated with summer also conspire to raise the number of car accidents, including:

  • More drivers on the road for summer travels and activities (some of whom won’t know where they are going and might be lost)
  • More bicyclists (many of them children) and motorcycle riders on the road
  • Greater number of road construction projects during the warm weather
  • Barbecues, summer picnics, and other social occasions increase the possibility of drivers on the road while under the influence of alcohol.

Teen Troubles

Why are teens at such high risk for being in and causing accidents? First of all, they are out of school, which means more time and opportunity to be on the road. They are also less experienced drivers and highly susceptible to distractions from passengers in their cars to cell phones and other electronic devices.

Educating teens on the responsibilities and dangers of being on the road is key, and many towns and schools have programs designed specifically for this purpose. Teens are often asked to sign a pledge committing to not engaging in risky driving behaviors such as not wearing a seatbelt, using their cell phones, and drinking alcohol.

Defensive Driving

How can you protect yourself and your family during this hazardous season on the road? A few suggestions:

  • Build extra time into your summer travel schedule
  • Drop your speed to allow extra reaction time for unexpected situations
  • Be extra vigilant of what’s going on around you

In Case of an Accident

Know what to do if a motor vehicle accident occurs. Always call 911 to get help on the way, and don’t leave the scene until it arrives, even if you think the accident is minor. If possible, take photos and collect contact information. Call an experienced attorney to help you sort out your rights and options.

We wish everyone a safe and happy summer!

Client Testimonials

Herb T. Testimonial

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.

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!
