Nobody ever plans or prepares for accidents. When they occur, they can turn a person’s life upside-down in an instant. If an accident causes an injury, the victim may face overwhelming medical bills, temporary or permanent disability that prevents them from working, and incalculable pain and suffering. When the accident was another person’s fault, the injured person can also feel a deep sense of injustice. In such cases, the at-fault party needs to be held accountable for their misconduct.
If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses you have suffered. You should not be responsible for costs that another party caused. The experienced Vineyard personal injury lawyers of Tiemann Law Firm are here to assist you as you seek the compensation and justice you deserve. We will perform all the necessary due diligence to determine who is liable for your injuries, and we will pursue the full and fair compensation you need to compensate you for your accident-related injuries and losses.

Compensation You Could Recover in a Personal Injury Case
There are two broad categories of financial compensation you can claim in a personal injury case: economic and non-economic. Economic losses include things that have an obvious dollar amount attached, such as:
- Medical bills
- Prescription drugs
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
Non-economic losses are intangible things that are more difficult to quantify, such as:
- Emotional distress
- Physical impairment or disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
After you have been involved in an accident, an insurance adjuster may contact you, either as a “courtesy call” or to offer you some form of compensation. Keep in mind that it is their job to save as much money as possible, and that any amount they offer you will likely be far less than you deserve and need to cover your losses. Speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer before you say anything to an insurance company or to the other party’s attorney. Your legal team can help you understand the value of your case, so you don’t settle for a lowball offer.
How Much Time Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
When it comes to personal injury cases, the state of California’s statute of limitations allows a two-year period. This means that if you are going to file a lawsuit, you need to do so within two years of the date of the accident. While this might seem like a long time, it is essential that you get started on your case as soon as possible. Unexpected obstacles often emerge in the process, which can cost you valuable time.
