SLOW DOWN!

How many times have you had a near miss with a speeding driver who is changing lanes erratically or running red lights? Have you been sitting a red light only to look up and see a driver approaching you at a high rate of speed? Do you want to scream at other drivers and ask them what the rush is today?

We are all guilty of pushing the speed limit every once in a while when we are in a hurry or not paying enough attention to driving. However, the excuse, “I only speed once in a while” is becoming overly used and not exactly truthful.

Speeding is a common factor in many traffic accidents in Sacramento and throughout California. Drivers are in such a hurry to get where they are going that they forget the dangers of traveling at such high rates of speed. Sadly, drivers realize much too late that speeding can have tragic and deadly consequences on our roads.

Dangers of Speeding

One of the dangers of speeding has to do with the time it takes you to stop. As you increase your speed, you also increase the time it takes you to come to a complete stop. If a driver suddenly slams on brakes in front of you or a child runs across the road, you may not have the time to stop your vehicle to avoid a collision.

Another problem with speeding is a collision. The faster you are traveling at the time of a collision the more likely you are to suffer catastrophic injuries. Speeding is a factor in many traffic fatalities. Low-speed collisions can and do cause traumatic injuries, but the risk of traumatic injuries is much higher in collisions involving high speeds.

While you may not be able to control what other drivers do when they are behind the wheel of their vehicles, you can slow down when you are driving. Leave home a little earlier to allow yourself extra time to reach your destination. Plan your trip before leaving home, including some alternate routes in case you run into traffic jams. Lastly, realize that the few seconds you save by speeding is not worth the risk you are taking with your life and the lives of every person on the road.

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!

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.

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!

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.
