Practice Areas

At Tiemann Law Firm, we concentrate almost exclusively on personal injury cases. That means we can build a strong case for the specific type of accident that caused your injury and present it in a way that helps maximize the compensation you receive.

  • Car Accidents. Living in Northern California means spending a lot of time on the road. It also means more chances of getting into an accident. If that accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you should have legal help for your recovery.
  • Pedestrian Accidents. You may not always drive. Sometimes you like to walk. And sometimes, drivers forget that pedestrians in California have the right of way. If you get hit by a car while walking, you can be seriously injured and need time to recover. You’ll also have medical bills to pay.
  • Truck Accidents. Sacramento and the surrounding areas see more than their share of big rigs passing through. That’s great for the economy, but not so great for cars that travel the roads with them. Being hit by a semi can mean a catastrophic accident, or worse.
  • Motorcycle Accidents. Sometimes it seems like everyone on the road wants to hit a motorcycle. Being hit by a car while on your ride is going to cause you injury. You should not have to suffer just because you like two wheels when the road is full of four-wheeled drivers.
  • DUI Victim. Nothing is more avoidable than being a drunk driver. For the victim, these drivers are the epitome of carelessness and callousness. If you have been struck by a drunk driver, you deserve the maximum compensation for all your injuries.
  • Dog Attacks. When owners are too careless or lazy to train and restrain their dogs, other people suffer, and the dog pays the price. We believe the owner is the one at fault for your injury, and they should be held financially accountable.
  • Product Liability. When you buy something, whether it is a screwdriver or a gaming console, you expect it to work properly and safely. If it breaks in a way that injures you or another person, the company that made it or sold it can be held liable for what happened.
  • Slip and Fall. If you go to the store to return the defective screwdriver, you assume the store’s floors will be swept, and the doors will work and be clearly marked. If you fall because of debris on the floor or get injured by a malfunctioning door, the property owner is responsible for the injury caused by their failure to clean up.
  • Bicycle Accidents. Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as any other road user. That means that if another vehicle hits you while you are out riding, you have the same ability to file a claim against the other driver for their carelessness and inattention.
  • Wrongful Death. No amount of money can ever replace a loved one. But if you lost them because of the negligent actions of another party, we at Tiemann Law Firm believe that you should be compensated for the costs you incurred because of that loss.
  • Brain Injuries. Whether it is a minor concussion or a major penetrating injury, damage to the brain can lead to a lifetime of debility and medical care. Any of these accidents can result in life-altering brain damage that requires years of treatment. You should be able to obtain that care if another person caused your injury.

How We Can Help

After an accident, you may believe that all you need to do is file your insurance claim and wait for the check to arrive. In some cases, that may be enough. A minor accident in the parking lot with just some damage to your car may only need minimal documentation. But what if you’re hurt and need a doctor’s care? What if the other driver says it was your fault?

Insurance companies are not your friends. Their goal is to pay you the least amount of money possible. They may offer you a quick settlement for medical bills you incurred for emergency treatment, and you might think that is enough. But a month later, when your neck still hurts, or the doctor says you might need surgery, you won’t have another chance to talk to the insurer.

Contact Us

At Tiemann Law Firm, we want you to get all the compensation you deserve for all your injuries. We will help you fill out the insurance forms so that the company cannot lowball you with a quick settlement offer. We will negotiate for you with the insurer for an appropriate settlement, and if necessary, we can go to court to get the outcome you deserve.

If you have been injured any kind of accident in Woodland that wasn’t your fault, you should not try to deal with the insurance companies and their attorneys by yourself. Call Tiemann Law Firm at (916) 999-9000, or contact us online right away. In California, you have only two years from the date of injury to file your lawsuit. The clock is running. Call us today. We’re here to help.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
