Walking along the side walk and across the street are daily occurrences for most residents of Sacramento, California. Unfortunately, the simple act of walking to the grocery store or taking a jog as part of your exercise routine in not just Sacramento but peaceful communities like Rancho Cordova, North Highlands, or Citrus Heights can be hazardous. Collisions between pedestrians and cars can be particularly devastating as the human body just isn’t made to withstand the force of colliding with a car or truck. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in an auto v. pedestrian accident you need a Sacramento pedestrian attorney that understands how these accidents happen and can work to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to. The Tiemann Law Firm regularly handles pedestrian v. auto accidents in Sacramento and surrounding communities and can help you with every aspect of your case, whether the pedestrian accident occurred in Sacramento, or elsewhere nearby.
We all know that auto accidents happen on a daily basis but accidents between cars and pedestrians happen with greater frequency than most of us would like. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that in 2010 4,280 pedestrians were killed in accidents involving cars, trucks and commercial vehicles. These pedestrian deaths amounted to 13% of all traffic related fatalities in the U.S. Unfortunately, California lead the Nation in the highest number of pedestrian fatalities in 2010 (599 deaths).

If you’ve lost a loved one as a result of an auto v. pedestrian accident you may also be able to bring a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties. Our accident attorneys will work with you at an initial free consult and then, if we take the case, you pay nothing unless we win.
Victims of these types of accidents often find that the responsible party doesn’t have insurance or doesn’t have adequate insurance to fully compensate them for their injuries. If this is the case, your uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance coverage may provide additional compensation. The experienced accident attorneys at the Tiemann Law Firm can help you understand how this coverage works and can help you recover from your injuries.

As pedestrian accident attorneys, we strive to get fair compensation if you have been the victim of a pedestrian accident.
