If you were injured in a California truck accident, you may have missed a substantial amount of time from work as you struggled to recover from your injuries. In some cases, you may be unable to return to work or return to the job that you had prior to the accident. You may be wondering who is going to reimburse you for your lost income. The truck accident attorneys of Tiemann Law Firm can help you recover your lost wages and other damages.

Due to the sheer size of commercial trucks, the injuries in a truck accident are typically traumatic and life-changing. It has been over a year since comedian Tracy Morgan was injured in a truck accident involving a Wal-Mart truck yet he still walks with a cane and has memory problems.

Traumatic brain injuries are common in truck accidents. Patients with this type of injury often require years of physical therapy and medical treatment. According to experts, Morgan’s recovery could take years. Some patients never fully recover from injuries sustained in truck accidents. This creates a severe financial burden for the victim and his or her family.

Calculating Lost Wages in a Truck Accident Case

If you cannot work due to injuries sustained in a truck accident, you are entitled to receive reimbursement for your lost wages from the at-fault party. It is important to retain an experienced California truck attorney to represent you in your claim because truck accident cases often involve several parties. The truck driver, the company, and other parties may all be liable for the accident. A personal injury attorney with experience handling large truck cases understands how to research and identify all of the liable parties. This increases the chance you will receive the maximum compensation for your damages. Past lost wages are usually not difficult to calculate because we know what you would have earned had you been able to work after the accident to the present date. Future lost wages and loss of earning capacity is more difficult to calculate. If you will be unable to return to work for an unknown period because of your injuries, how do we calculate your damages? If you are able to work but you are unable to do the work you did prior to the accident and will earn less income, how is that calculated? What happens if you are never able to return to work? What happens to the promotions, bonuses, and other compensation you would have received had you not been injured in the truck accident? In many truck accident cases, we employ financial experts to calculate the damages from future lost earnings. A forensic economist uses factors such as your age, health prior to the accident, employment history, education, job skills, economic lifestyle, and earnings history to calculate the income you would have earned had it not been for the truck accident. It is not an exact science but hiring an experienced truck accident lawyer who understands the complexities of valuing lost wages as damages will give you a better chance of success.

I sat down and met with Jelena Tiemann about my vehicle accident.I presented all of my documentation to her in which she gave me her assessment.Although the Tiemann Law Firm wont be representing me because my settlement offer was pretty good she was very clear,forward and professional about what she felt could and couldn't be done.I recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a helping hand at fighting a case where you don't have to worry about the outcome not going in your favor. Please don't review this business if you received a freebie for writing this review, or if you're connected in any way to the owner or employees.

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.
