We handle every type of personal injury claim.
Car Accident Claims
Car accident claims are never simple, especially when catastrophic injuries are involved. All Alberta residents must purchase insurance, but that doesn’t mean that insurance companies race to do the right thing when it’s time for them to uphold their end of the bargain.
When a case gets complex and involves serious injuries and negligence on the part of one of the drivers, insurance companies often fight hard to shift the blame onto the victim. Thanks to Alberta’s comparative negligence laws, even a little bit of success here can cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
If you don’t have a lawyer, the only settlement offer you will ever receive will be too low to cover your injuries. We help you change the equation. When you work with us, you’ll get the compensation you deserve.
Commercial Truck Accidents
Our 20+ years of experience serves our clients well when they are forced to go head-to-head with a major corporation after a collision with a big box truck or semi. These cases are insanely complex, and require lawyers who understand Canadian trucking regulations and industry standards.
In these cass you may have to deal with multiple insurance providers and multiple negligent parties. Every last one of them will try to twist the truth to suit their own ends. They know that trucking injuries alter the lives of their victims forever, but they still don’t want to pay you a cent.
We can help you navigate this complex maze to get the compensation you deserve.
Catastrophic injuries and the ever-present stigma against riders combine to make motorcycle cases incredibly tough. Riders who may have traumatic brain injuries, severe scarring, spinal injuries, fractures, and who may have even been knocked unconscious at the time of the accident are forced to deal with insurance companies who insist on blaming them.
Yet the vast majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by reckless passenger vehicles whose drivers are not paying attention to the presence of smaller vehicles on the road.
Don’t let them get away with this. Reach out to our law firm to get help today.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
You’d think that a collision between a 1000+ kg vehicle and someone trying to walk or ride a bike across the street would be an open-and-shut case, but nothing could be further from the truth. While you suffer from catastrophic, life-altering injuries, that driver’s insurance company is looking for ways to shift the blame onto you.
Worse, you might be in such bad shape after an accident like this that it becomes impossible to gather evidence on your behalf.
Involving our team quickly can protect you and your interests while ensuring you get the money you need to rebuild your life and health.
Slip and Fall Cases
Property owners often neglect their duties to provide customers, visitors, and vendors with a safe environment. They fail to maintain their properties or to warn of hazards, and the results are often tragic.
Spinal injuries, fractures, a loss of independence and mobility—all common consequences in Alberta slip and fall cases.
Take these cases seriously. We do. The property insurance provider will try to cheat you, but we’ll be there to help you.
