Spinal cord injuries can be life-changing. Our team of expert lawyers works with individuals who are suffering from quadriplegia, paraplegia, hemiplegia, and other major spinal impairments as a result of someone else’s negligent actions.
You are entitled to compensation which can cover your long-term care and replace your lost wages. Medicare doesn’t pay for many of the specialists you will need to work with, which is why personal injury law exists.
The negligent party’s insurance company is responsible for covering these expenses. The insurance companies usually do everything in their power to reduce or eliminate their obligation to pay.
Merchant law helps victims with spinal cord injuries get justice.
We start by assigning you a lawyer to serve as your go-to person. Insurance companies may try to trick you into making a mistake that harms your case. Once you’ve retained a lawyer you can send their representatives straight to your representative.
We file your claim, negotiate with the insurance companies, and keep you from making major mistakes which could have a severe impact on your case. In the meantime we’re tracking down witnesses, gathering evidence, and retaining expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.
Alberta is a comparative negligence state, so the defendants will be working hard to blame you for the accident. The stronger their case, the less money you get. That’s why you need lawyers who will fight hard for you.
This all especially important in spinal injury cases as individuals who have suffered from this kind of injury rarely have the ability to gather evidence on their own behalf after the accident. Often they are unconscious, or in so much pain that it’s impossible to do anything other than receive medical care.
We’ll also help you identify all of the responsible parties so that you can get the maximum amount of compensation allowable under Alberta law. For example, if you were injured in a commercial trucking accident then we’d go after both the truck driver and the driver’s employer. If defective parts were involved we’d go after the manufacturer of those parts. Merchant Law leaves no stone unturned.
