Our Sacramento car accident attorneys are often asked about the value of claims during the free consultations we offer. While we want to answer this question for you, any answer we give you at our first meeting would be nothing more than a pure guess. If another attorney tells you he can give you the exact amount of the value of your claim during your consultation, you should consult another lawyer for a second opinion.

As attorneys, we feel that we should thoroughly investigate your accident claim and gather evidence before we begin putting a price tag on your pain and suffering. To value a claim early in the case can be irresponsible and cost you money. It is our goal to get you the most money we can for your losses, pain, and damages.

Four Factors That Impact The Value of a Head Injury Claim

Many factors can impact the value of your claim, including the attorney that you choose to represent you. If you choose an attorney with little experience or an attorney who only wants to close your case to get his fee, you might receive less money for your claim. For this reason, we urge you to take advantage of the free consultation with our attorneys to learn why The Tiemann Law Firm is different from other firms and how we can help you with your head injury claim.

In addition to the attorney you choose, four factors can substantially impact the value of a head injury claim:

  • The Negligence of The Parties Involved in The Crash
    Under California’s comparative negligence laws, if you are partially at fault for a collision, the amount of money you can receive for your claim can be reduced by the amount of fault assigned to you for the accident. Therefore, if the other driver can prove you are 30 percent at fault, the most you can receive for your claim is 70 percent of the total value of the claim. Our attorneys fight aggressively to prove that the other driver was 100 percent at fault for the crash so that you can receive more money for your head injury claim.
  • The Extent of Your Head Injury
    The severity of an injury directly impacts the amount of money you can receive for your claim. The more severe the injury, the more money you might be entitled to receive.
  • The Amount of Economic Losses
    In a traffic accident claim for a head injury, you can claim dollar-for-dollar the amount of economic loss suffered because of the accident and your head injury. Therefore, you can claim the exact amount of your medical costs, lost wages, travel expenses, and other out-of-pocket costs. The higher your economic losses, the higher the value of your head injury claim.
  • The Amount of Car Insurance Available
    Many people in California carry the minimum amount of car insurance. Therefore, if the amount of your claim exceeds the other driver’s insurance limits, the amount of money you receive might also be limited. In other words, even though the true value of your claim might be higher, the actual value of your claim may be much lower. Our Sacramento car accident attorneys search for all sources of compensation in a head injury claim to increase the chance you can recover full compensation for your claim.

Client Testimonials

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!

Matt H. Testimonial

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.

It is hard to put into words the care and dedication that I received from the Tiemann’s. They have been here for me every step of the way and were always available when I had questions or concerns. My husband and I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us and our family. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and time you have put into my case, we greatly appreciate it and your friendship. We highly recommend this firm and will always be thankful for everything they have done. Thank you so much again, Kim

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

Maye Ly Testimonial

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.
