Following a traumatic truck accident, a victim is usually dealing with severe injuries. Close on the heels of the pain and suffering of the physical recovery from the accident comes frighteningly large medical bills. Seems like there’s a new one in the mailbox every day. There’s also a good chance that you’re unable to work at the moment causing further anxiety due to lost wages or the prospect of not being able to resume your career. In the midst of all this, you need to make choices how to pursue the financial compensation you’re entitled to. That’s where we come in. An experienced truck accident attorney can clarify your options and take an enormous burden off your shoulders by taking over your case.

Steps in a Truck Accident Case

You may have already been contacted by the truck company or the insurance company about your accident. Once you hire one of our lawyers, you will no longer need to speak to anyone official regarding your accident. Anyone who wishes to communicate about the case will need to go through your attorney. Here are the steps your lawyer will be following to resolve your case:

  • Independently investigating your accident
  • Filing a claim with the insurance company
  • Meeting all paperwork deadlines
  • Assertively negotiating with adjusters for full compensation
  • Reviewing settlement offers

If an insurance company refuses to offer you an adequate settlement, your attorney will advise you on whether or not filing a lawsuit is the next best step. If you decide to move forward the following will take place:

  • Your lawyer will file a complaint to which the company will have 30 days to respond
  • Discovery—your attorney and the defendant’s lawyer will gather evidence, conduct interviews and depositions
  • Settlement—the vast majority of cases end here if a fair settlement can be reached
  • Trial—if a settlement can’t be reached, your attorney will take your case to court and present the evidence that shows you deserve the maximum compensation available

Truck accident cases are complex. Let one of our attorneys with a proven truck accident record guide you through this process to get you what you need to recover.

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!

Matt H. Testimonial

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.

It is hard to put into words the care and dedication that I received from the Tiemann’s. They have been here for me every step of the way and were always available when I had questions or concerns. My husband and I will be forever grateful for everything they have done for us and our family. Thank you so much for all of the hard work and time you have put into my case, we greatly appreciate it and your friendship. We highly recommend this firm and will always be thankful for everything they have done. Thank you so much again, Kim

I was in a very bad/ major car accident I originally had an attorney who wasn’t trying to help me out much or take any of my calls so I called Tiemann and told them my situation. They made it an AWESOME and Smooth transition over to them and took on both cases I had. I just settled on my big case and am beyond great full. For them and their team! I highly recommend them. To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!

Maye Ly Testimonial

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.
