Filing an Injury Claim in California

One of the most important questions that a person has when they are injured is whether they have a valid injury claim. To determine if you have a claim against another party for damages arising from a personal injury accident, we will begin by asking you several questions about what happened to you.

How were you injured in the accident? Your injury can be physical, emotional, or mental; however, you must have suffered some type of injury to have a valid injury claim. Examples of injuries include broken bones, brain injuries, mental anguish, spinal cord injuries, emotional stress, amputations, physical pain, and fractures. The injury can be minor or severe. The only requirement is that you are injured in some way and that you can prove you were injured.

Did another person or party cause the accident that resulted in your injury? To recover compensation from another party, that party must have caused the accident or contributed to the cause of the accident. Your compensation depends on whether the other party was 100 percent at fault or partially at fault. Furthermore, you must also prove that your injuries were a direct result of the accident.

Have you suffered damages that are compensable? You must have suffered damages that are compensable under California’s personal injury laws to have a valid injury claim. Damages can consist of financial losses and non-economic damages. Examples of financial losses include lost income, medical expenses, and property damage. Non-economic damages include your physical pain and emotional suffering. An attorney can help you document your damages to increase the chance you will receive full compensation for all losses, injuries, and damages.

Many questions arise during an injury claim. Hiring an experienced California personal injury lawyer is the first step in receiving answers to your questions. An attorney will handle investigating the accident to identify liable parties and gather evidence to prove fault and damages.

Your attorney also negotiates with the insurance company for the at-fault party to arrive at a fair settlement. If the insurance company refuses to agree to a fair amount, your attorney may advise you to file a personal injury lawsuit.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

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.
