Traumatic injuries can occur in any accident. In most cases, a traumatic injury is an injury that results in life-altering conditions. The changes result from a traumatic injury varies from person to person. However, there are a few changes that are usually common for accident victims who suffer a traumatic injury because of a car crash, motorcycle accident, truck accident, slip and fall, or other personal injury accident.

  • Work and Career

For most people who suffer a traumatic injury, it is very difficult, if not impossible, to return to a full-time job or career. For instance, a victim who suffers a spinal cord injury, who is now paralyzed, and who is confined to a wheelchair will find it difficult to return to a job on an assembly line or a job that requires weekly travel. A personal injury claim can provide compensation for lost wages and future lost wages to help a victim pay necessary living expenses if he or she is unable to work.

  • Goals and Future

A traumatic injury can change your goals and plans. In many cases, the injury impacts every area of the person’s life — work, home, family, leisure, etc.  A person’s priorities may change because he or she must now worry about how to earn a living given the limitations caused by the severe injury. In addition, goals and plans change to incorporate the “new normal” that the victim must now live with because of the injury. For example, an accident victim who suffers an amputation must now focus on goals such as modifying a home, purchase a special vehicle, obtaining various pieces of medical equipment, and planning for future medical and personal care.

  • Family Relationships

The relationship with family members and friends can change for a person with a traumatic injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, the person may or may not continue in the same role as caretaker or provider. It can be very challenging emotionally, physically, and financially to adapt to the changes that a traumatic injury can cause for the person and his or her family. In some cases, family members may need to get a job, take over certain household chores, and learn how to become a caretaker. A personal injury claim may help provide the money to hire nurses, caregivers, housekeepers, and other professionals who can provide help and support when needed.

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!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

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.
