Let’s face it; in a motorcycle versus a 3,000-pound or more car or truck accident, the motorcycle is almost always the loser. Even with a helmet and other appropriate safety gear, injuries can be devasting. Here in California, although very common, motorcycles have a high rate of accidents, many of which are fatal. In one recent year, the Governor’s Highway Safety Association showed that California had 566 motorcyclists killed in accidents—the highest fatality rate of any state.

Common Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

In some cases, a motorcyclist may be lucky to escape an accident with minor injuries such as cuts and road rash. But in most instances, the injuries are more severe and may include:

  • Concussion
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal injury and/or paralysis
  • Internal injuries
  • Fractures
  • Traumatic brain injury

These injuries can leave lasting physical and emotional scars and may change your life permanently. Your ability to earn a living, play with your children and enjoy time with your spouse and your friends may be forever changed.

Your Life May Never be the Same After a Motorcycle Crash

It may be hard to imagine the damages you would need just to cover the medical bills, therapies, doctor visits, tests, and prescriptions necessary to deal with your injuries. There is also another facet of damages—pain and suffering—which is more complex to define with an actual dollar amount but permissible to sue for in California. An experienced attorney can help you during this traumatic time.

Client Testimonials

Jennifer T. Testimonial

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.

Hanna Padilla Testimonial

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.
