If you were to ask a room of people whether they think that riding a motorcycle is fun, chances are you’ll find many in agreement that it’s an exciting and enjoyable hobby. Motorcycles are a popular hobby among folks across the United States, many of which consider a motorcycle to be their preferred vehicle. But what about those who second guess and have hesitations around getting into the hobby? As it turns out, these worries are completely valid:

  • Half of all motorcycle accidents happen at an intersection. Keeping this in mind, regardless of if you’re driving a car or a motorcycle, can make a huge difference in avoiding becoming part of a statistic. Always keep an eye out for motorcycles all around you, especially at intersections and in your blind spots.
  • Driving a motorcycle is 27 times more deadly than driving a car. This mostly comes from the fact that the driver of a motorcycle is fully exposed than the driver of a car, but it also takes in consideration the fact that risks are taken more often on motorcycles due to their smaller size and speed.
  • Nearly 50% of deadly single-vehicle accidents involved alcohol. This means that half of all fatal accidents involving only the driver of the vehicle were due to alcohol or drug consumption. Combined with the higher risk of a motorcycle accident fatality, driving under the influence only worsens the outcome.
  • Simply wearing a helmet can decrease your chance of dying by 37%. The simple act of wearing protective gear, such as a helmet, while operating a motorcycle can have a huge impact on how likely you are to survive a motorcycle accident.
  • The state of California has the largest volume of registered motorcyclists in the U.S. While Southern California has a slightly higher population of motorcyclists than Northern California, the fact stands that their road presence is extremely high. The higher the population of riders, the higher the likelihood of an accident.

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!
