Personal Injury Law
We represent people that are injured in accidents. We do not represent insurance companies.
We represent our clients with competence and integrity as we seek to maximize the amount of money that can be received as compensation for injuries sustained in an accident.
We offer a free / no obligation consultation on all of our personal injury matters. If your injury has made it so you are unable to come to our office we are willing to visit you in your home, at the hospital or another location that is convenient for you. We can also schedule an appointment to discuss your personal injury claim over the phone.
No upfront payment required
We get paid when you get paid. When your claim is resolved then we collect a percentage of the settlement amount.
Throughout the process we will pay for medical reports, doctors notes and evidence needed to prove your claim.
Car accidents can be a difficult time for people. This is especially the case when the accident was someone else’s fault and it has resulted in injuries. Dealing with insurance adjusters to discuss settlement for injuries can be overwhelming. We have expertise in dealing with insurance adjusters and the lawyers that they hire.
It is important that you seek legal advice early in the process to help preserve evidence and to gather the right kind of evidence needed to prove your claim.
In 2004 the Alberta Government set a cap on whiplash associated injuries that are a result of motor vehicle accidents. This cap set a maximum amount that someone can receive as compensation for pain and suffering if they have a whiplash associated injury. This cap covers what are referred to as Grade I and II sprains, strains and whiplash. This cap is presently at approximately $5,000.00 and is adjusted each year for inflation.
Often insurance companies will try to convince a victim of a motor vehicle accident that their injuries fall under the $5,000.00 cap limit. Often injuries that initially appear as though they may fall under the cap end up being outside of the cap as the injury progresses. For example, if a whiplash injury becomes chronic in nature then it is no longer subject to the minor injury cap.
We have the expertise to assist you through your whiplash related claims.
