After a motor vehicle crash, what you do now can affect your legal rights and your rights to compensation for damages. Listed below are the top 5 questions people have after a car accident:

1. Who pays for the damage to my vehicle?
If the crash was caused by the fault of the other driver, generally, the other driver’s insurance company will be responsible for paying for the damage to your vehicle.

2. Who pays for my medical bills?
If you are not at fault you will be able to seek compensation from the at fault driver for your medical expenses. If you have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage you will also be able to take care of your own medical expenses, including time missed from work and hospital expenses. You can visit the CA DMV website to learn more about auto insurance requirements.

3. What if I am hurt, but I cannot afford to pay for medical treatment?
If you were hurt as a result of a car accident, it is very important for you to go to the emergency room or your family doctor immediately. This provides for documentation of your injuries and it prevents the insurance company from saying that you were not hurt. If necessary, we can recommend doctors to you who will agree to see and treat you and wait to get paid after your case is settled. An experienced Sacramento and Folsom, CA car accident attorney at Tiemann Law Firm can help you get the care you need.

4. What if the other driver does not have insurance?
If you have insurance, but the other driver does not, then we may be able to proceed with your claim against your insurance company. This is called uninsured motorist coverage. Remember, your insurance company, like the other driver’s insurance company, will want to pay you as little as possible.

5. What if I cannot afford to pay for attorney fees?
Don’t worry. Our fee is a percentage of the settlement that you eventually receive. There will be NO money taken out of your pocket and no retainer fees. WE GET PAID ONLY IF YOU GET PAID.

If you cannot come to our offices, we will come to you in your home, in the hospital, or any other place you would prefer to meet.

A wrongful death case is the civil claim a surviving family member may bring against the responsible party for the death of their loved one after an accident.

- Auto Accidents

Tips for Accident Victims Giving Depositions

1.) Take a deep breath before each answer. You are not in a hurry. You can take your time answering each question, so think before you speak to make sure you say only what you mean to say.

2.) Do not answer if you do not understand the question. It is okay to tell the attorney you are unsure of what he is asking. If you do not understand the questions, ask the attorney to clarify before you answer.

3.) Always be honest. You are under oath. Your answers can be used later in court. Therefore, be honest. If you cannot recall the answer, simply state that you do not recall. Do not estimate or guess unless directed by your attorney.

4.) Keep it simple. Do not volunteer any information. Listen carefully to each question and only answer that question. Do not elaborate.

5.) Be polite and respectful. It is easy to see the other attorney as the enemy, but he is doing his job. Being rude can cast you in a poor light. Leave your temper at home, remain calm, and answer the questions politely. Do not allow the attorney to agitate you because you could trip up.

6.) You may answer intimate questions. If your claim includes loss of consortium or pain and suffering damages, you might be required to answer intimate questions. The questions are not intended to embarrass you. Try to maintain your composure and answer honestly.

7.) Get a good night’s rest and eat a healthy meal. Before a deposition, it is important to rest and eat a healthy meal... read more:

Truck Accident Attorneys serving Sacramento

California, especially Sacramento, is an important part of the agricultural distribution chain in the United States, especially along Highway 5, and as a result, we see significantly more commercial trucking traffic in Sacramento than in other parts of the country. Cities and towns such as Elk Grove, Sacramento and North Natomas near highway 99 witness their share of truck accidents as do cities along I-5 such as Clarksburg, Southwestern Sacramento, and North Natomas. Long hauls, heavy loads and time constraints often put truck drivers under immense pressure leading to unfortunate accidents that can cause serious injury or even death to Sacramento residents. At the Tiemann Law Firm, our truck accident attorneys regularly handle lawsuits for people who have been injured or lost loved ones in trucking accidents near Sacramento and throughout Northern California. Our experienced truck accident attorneys can help you understand the claims process and protect your interests.

Trucking Accidents v. Auto Accidents in Sacramento

Many truck accident attorneys make the mistake of handling accidents involving commercial trucks and big-rigs in the same way they would handle an accident involving two passenger vehicles. This is often a result of inexperience and a misunderstanding of the physical and legal differences between accidents involving private cars and those involving commercial trucks. Working with a truck accident attorney will help to ensure that you get the best possible settlement.
At the Tiemann Law Firm of Sacramento and Folsom, California, our skilled trucking accident attorneys have the experience you need to feel confident in our representation from the start... Read more:…/…/

When you are injured in a personal injury accident, you are entitled to seek compensation for injuries. If your injury prevents you from working, you may receive reimbursement for your lost wages. You may also be entitled to compensation for a loss of earning capacity.

What Qualifies as Lost Income in a Sacramento Accident Claim?

Lost income refers to the wages or other income you would have earned had it not been for the accident. The income can come from salary or hourly wages, commissions, or profits from a self-employed business. Your claim includes the days you missed from work. It also includes the time you took off work to go to the doctor or physical therapy. It may also include bonuses you would have received had you been working.

In some cases, calculating lost wages is simply a matter of obtaining records from your employer. However, in the case of a self-employed person or someone who earns commission, a financial expert may need to assist your attorney in calculating the exact amount of lost wages to include in your claim.

What Is a Loss of Earning Capacity Claim?

In some personal injury claims, we include a claim for loss of earning capacity. Loss of earning capacity is another type of damage in a personal injury claim. For this type of claim, the injury you sustained must have resulted in an impairment of your earning potential.

For example, you suffered a permanent disability from the accident that makes it impossible for you to stand for over a few hours at a time. Unfortunately, you cannot return to your previous job full-time and part-time work is unavailable in your line of work. You must now choose another career field which may not offer the same level of income you earned prior to the accident. Therefore, your ability to earn a living has been impaired, resulting in a loss of earning capacity.

Proving a Loss of Earning Capacity Claim

It can be difficult to prove a loss of earning capacity claim. Your attorney must work closely with your medical team and other experts. Some steps in the process include:

- Reviewing your injuries and medical condition with your physicians, including the severity of your injury and the level of impairment. Consulting with a medical expert regarding testimony about how the impairment impacts your ability to work.

- Closely analyzing your work abilities and skills prior to the accident, including education, skills, talents, experience, and abilities.

- Consulting with a financial analyst to determine the market values and wages to determine how much income you would have earned had it not been for the injury.

- Utilizing a vocational rehabilitation specialist to review your case and testify how your injury impacts your job opportunities and job performance.

- Consulting other experts, including job market specialists, accountants, economists, and doctors to provide evidence to substantiate the claim for loss of earning capacity.
