Are you a victim of a commercial truck accident? If so, you can benefit from the advice, support, and guidance of a Sacramento truck accident attorney. Semi-truck accidents are very different from other types of car accidents. The parties involved, trucking regulations, aggressive insurance companies, large trucking companies, and complex evidence are just a few of the reasons that you need an experienced truck accident attorney to help you with an injury claim.

How Can a Sacramento Truck Accident Attorney Help You With Your Injury Claim?

Commercial truck accidents generally result in catastrophic injuries for victims. Many victims of 18-wheeler accidents sustain permanent impairments and disabilities. The recovery period can be lengthy and expensive. For that reason, trucking companies and insurance providers want to limit their liability for a personal injury claim. These companies have highly trained, experienced teams of professionals who begin immediate investigations into the truck accident. Their goal is to secure evidence that can help them limit their liability for your injuries. You need someone working for you to balance that equation. Someone who understands how to protect your best interests. Examples of things our truck accident attorney does to protect your legal right during a truck accident case include, but is not limited to:

  • Begins an immediate investigation into the cause of the truck accident.
  • Notifies the truck’s owner and trucking company to preserve evidence, including the truck’s black box, maintenance records, employment records, and logbooks
  • Conducts interviews with eyewitnesses
  • Secures video of the accident from traffic cameras and nearby security cameras
  • Obtains copies of reports from the police, insurance investigators, federal agencies, and other parties
  • Hires accident reconstructionists, engineers, and industry experts to assist in the investigation
  • Works with your medical providers to obtain updates and evidence of your injuries, including permanent disabilities
  • Identifies the parties who may share in the liability for the cause of the truck crash
  • Identifies insurance coverage for your injuries and damages

Most individuals do not have the resource and skills necessary to handle a truck accident case. An attorney without experience handling personal injury claims involving commercial vehicles may also not have the knowledge necessary to investigate the accident and build a case. It is to your advantage to seek help from an experienced Sacramento truck accident attorney.

Our goal is to get you the most money available for your personal injury claim to help you as you learn to cope with the devastating effects of an 18-wheeler accident.

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 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.
