Being involved in a car accident can leave you feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. To help you navigate this challenging situation, Tiemann Law Firm has compiled a list of the top five questions you should ask yourself immediately following a car accident:

  1. Am I and everyone else safe? – Safety should be your first priority immediately following an accident. Check yourself and your passengers for any injuries, calling emergency services if needed. If there are no serious injuries, move your vehicle to a safe location if possible.
  2. Have I documented the scene? – Accurate documentation of the scene is crucial for insurance claims and potential legal proceedings. Take photos of the vehicles involved, the surrounding area, and any visible damage or injuries. Make sure to capture multiple angles and include close-up shots of any significant damage.
  3. Did I gather all the necessary information? – Collecting comprehensive information from all parties involved in the accident is essential. Exchange contact and insurance details with the other driver(s) and gather witness statements. This information will be invaluable when filing an insurance claim or taking legal action.
  4. Have I reported the accident to the authorities? – In many jurisdictions, it’s legally required to report a car accident to the police, especially if there are injuries or significant property damage. Even if the accident seems minor, having an official police report can be beneficial for your insurance claim.
  5. Do I have proper support and guidance? – The most important thing to remember is you don’t have to navigate the post-accident complexities alone. A dependable and knowledgeable lawyer will help you with everything from insurance negotiations to taking care of your case in the courtroom should that need arise.

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.

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!
