Personal injury law encompasses a wide variety of situations and laws that protect individuals when they are injured by the careless, reckless, or negligent acts of another party. Our Sacramento personal injury attorneys handle many different types of cases. We can help you receive compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, funeral expenses, emotional distress, and physical pain.

Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle accidents cause traumatic and life-changing injuries in Sacramento and throughout California each day. The damages from a vehicle crash can total hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars depending on the severity of your injuries. If the other driver is at fault, you can receive compensation for your injuries. In some cases, you may be eligible to receive compensation even if you are partially at fault for the accident. You can get more information about each of the following types of vehicle accidents, in addition to what you need to do to protect your right to receive compensation if you are involved in any of these accidents, by visiting our informational web pages:

Dog Bites

Dog bites result in permanent scarring, puncture wounds, and other damage. A dog bite can result in painful rabies shots, surgery, amputation, and death. A dog attack is a traumatic event that can require years of treatment for emotional distress. Dog owners have a legal responsibility to compensate victims for the injuries caused by their dogs under California Civil Code §3342. For more information about dog bites in California, see your dog bite accident webpage.

Elder and Senior Abuse

Trusting your loved one to the care of strangers is a difficult decision. When your loved one is injured through negligence, abuse, financial exploitation, or neglect, your loved one deserves justice. An elder abuse lawsuit provides a way to hold the parties liable for your loved one’s injuries accountable for their actions. To get more information about elder abuse, contact our office for a free consultation and read more information on our Elder and Senior Abuse webpage.

Slip and Fall Claims

California premises liability laws protect you if you are injured in a slip and fall claim on another person’s property regardless of whether it is privately owned property or commercial property. A property owner has a duty to provide a safe environment for customers, guests, and visitors. If you are injured, you must take steps to protect your right to receive compensation. Contact our office and read more about what to do in a slip and fall case here.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

The grief and pain of losing a loved one can be overwhelming when the loss was unnecessary. Under California’s wrongful death laws, you may be entitled to receive a financial award if another party caused the death of your loved one. No amount of money will bring back your loved one or ease your pain; however, a wrongful death lawsuit allows you to seek justice on behalf of your loved one. You must file a wrongful death lawsuit prior to the expiration of the statute of limitations or you lose your right to pursue the liable party. Read more about wrongful death lawsuits on our webpage dedicated to this type of personal injury claim.

Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can result in permanent disabilities that require long-term personal and medical care. Even a mild brain injury can cause you to miss a substantial amount of work and cost thousands of dollars in medical treatments. If you believe you suffered a brain injury in an accident, seek immediate medical attention. We have the signs and symptoms associated with a brain injury on our website.

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!

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.
