Recent statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal that pedestrian accident injuries and fatalities continue to rise. California has the unfortunate claim of having the greatest number of pedestrian deaths of any state in the country. Experts say that two reasons for the increased risk to walkers are speed and the use of alcohol by those involved in the accidents.

Negligent Behaviors Lead to Injuries

Chances are, if you’ve been the victim of a pedestrian accident you are more concerned about dealing with your injuries and the other difficulties you are currently encountering than the cause of the accident, but if a driver’s negligence caused your accident you are entitled to compensation. Negligence is defined as the failure of one party to use the appropriate care required under specific circumstances. In addition to speeding or driving under the influence other forms of negligence on the part of a driver leading to a pedestrian accident include:

  • Drowsy driving
  • Texting and driving or some other form of distracted driving
  • Failure to stop at a stop sign
  • Not yielding

When a car and a walker are entangled in an accident it’s inevitably the pedestrian that suffers the most injury. In many cases a pedestrian accident results in several different injuries such as lacerations, broken bones, concussion, traumatic brain injury, muscle sprains and strains, torn ligaments and even spinal cord damage. Our experienced pedestrian lawyers have successfully prevailed in many cases similar to yours. Our attorneys will collect all the necessary evidence from witnesses, photographs, documents and police and medical records needed to prove your case.

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.

Here's the thing... Nobody really thinks much about lawyers until they need one.  Well, we needed one!  The Tieman Law Firm came through for us in a big way. They were professional, courteous, thorough, and had excellent staff as well.  Highly recommended...

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!
